In New TV Ad, Yoko Ono Speaks to Gov. Cuomo About Fracking

The deadline for New York Gov. Cuomo’s decision on fracking is quickly approaching. The Governor wouldn’t meet with us about fracking, so we’re putting our message on TV in the hope we can reach him that way. Starting Feb. 8, a 30-second TV ad will air in New York City, Westchester and Albany, featuring Artists Against Fracking co-founder Yoko Ono directly addressing the Governor.
“Gov. Cuomo, since you haven’t met with me about the dangers of fracking, I will show you … Keep fracking out of New York. P.S. Nice to meet you, Governor,” Ono says in the ad.

The ad will air from Friday through next week on channels like CNN, NY1 and NBC, but in case you miss it, you can watch it right here!

Gov. Cuomo could make his decision on whether or not to allow fracking for natural gas in New York as early as Feb. 13, and he must make his decision by Feb. 27. Let us know what you think about Yoko’s new ad, and be sure to share it with your friends and fellow activists!

    Unfortunately, this EMI-music-content is not available in Germany because GEMA has not granted the respective music publishing rights…

    I have read up on this subject, and seen the documentaries such as ‘Gasland’, and if I was allowed only one question to ask of the gas companies, it would be does fracking a gas well really REQUIRE all the chemicals in the fracking fluid? It seems that many of them are added for reasons of protecting the equipment and making the process more effective, but can it be done with just water?
