Awesome job. Thank you for your efforts. It;s incredible that after all this time they still want to pursue this filthy energy. We could be running cars on hydrogen with 0 pollution if the R&D were there we would have been there by now. But entrenched Oil interest will never concede anything without a struggle. They will do anything and everything to maintain a firm grip on their cash cow.
This is a good site, but why stop at New York? Can the artists do anything to help keep fracking out of southern Illinois? We have a similar shale bed (the New Albany!) under our Shawnee National Forest, in direct contact to the Wabash Valley seismic zone – we are about to get seriously fracked over here!

I have a question about what science has been done.
Recently a number of articles have been published noting that there are micro-organisms which appear to be natural inhabitants of fuel reserves. these organisms very slowly over time break down oil and coal into natural gas, which slowly leaks towards the surface. naturally one would then assume that this gas flow, much like ocean vents, feeds an ecosystem which would become dependent on the source of energy and complex biological compounds.
When a reserve is affected by harvesting, a number of things are going on that would result in the destruction of these microbes, and the loss of their actions such that the surrounding area would now lack this supply. This might cause a shrinking bio-diversity in the locale, and negatively affect the microbial food chain, and therefore the resilience of the region.
My fear is that this is leading to increased desertification, and a loss in bio-diversity, particularly in complex organisms dependent on a broad nutritional base, such as trees. Clearly the loss of environment would cause the loss of the microbes, but we then turn and pump thousands of gallons of bio-cide first into the shales, or other storage rocks, and then we pump the waste-water deeper into the ground, which is also inhabited by microbial life, which may also have a similar effect, and cause “breaks in the food chain” . This chemical introduction would, however, be temporary when compared to a complete removal of a source of nutrients and energy.
I would like to note that although this gas flow would occur very slowly, I feel inclined to think that if it were constant, it would indeed support a unique biology which would become dependent.
Good grief, get a life.
My fear is that idiots like you are running around without a keeper.
This is not far off– I attended the American Geophysical Union conference last fall, and saw some presentations of scientific research on the effect of fracking on the microorganisms you reference. There is indeed an ecosystem down there…maybe you could find something by using Google scholar.
John Lennon was a piece of trash that ruined tens of thousands of young american lives. Glad his talentless son can live the good life off the old man’s money.
I have to admit that it bothers me to hear someone call John Lennon, who was one of the most talented and engaging musicians of the mid-20th century, “a piece of trash,” but I would guess someone who would say that is probably uncomfortable with phrases like “Give Peace a Chance.”
Thank you for doing this, John Lennon was a great artist I miss his songs, Give Peace a Chance, was a great message and now his wife and son are following in his foot steps, Fantistic,
Privileged rich artists think they are above the law and do not have to register their group as lobbyists.
Scientifically ignorant rich artists think they know better than real scientists and want YOU to pay more for your energy, while this will have no impact on them because they are rich and they don’t need jobs.
Boycott these rich useful idiots. If you have to watch their movies or listen to their music then download it for free.
You people have no idea what you are talking about. You do not live in southern New York state, the rural area. Come out here and see how the property owners, farmers and hard working families really live. you have no idea how we live. you do gooder “ARTISTS” have way to much time on your hands!!! New York state pays some of the highest taxes and fuel prices in the country!!! And there are alot of us that want to see fracking start and the sooner the better.
I am for fracking
What a joke this webpage is and all the people that is behind it. Baldwin we know what he is.
We all know who broke up the Beatles The weird Hat lady.
