An Open Letter to Gov. Cuomo: Drink This?

Dear Governor Cuomo:

As you move closer to deciding whether to allow fracking to contaminate your residents’ water, we thought it was only fair to let you know what your residents are in for. Here is water from Westmoreland County, PA, that was contaminated by fracking chemicals.

The sample was collected there in November 2011 and has not been altered in any way. The cloudiness at the bottom of the jar occurred “naturally” as a result of the toxic fracking process. Should you move ahead, as many believe you plan to do, it is only fair that you take a sip of the water that you are condemning your residents to drink.

Where should we send it?
