Last week, the Watertown Daily Times published an editorial that calls on Gov. Cuomo to allow natural gas development using high-volume hydraulic fracturing to in New York. The editorial board writes:

“It’s absurd for people in New York state to reduce their home-heating costs by using natural gas imported from Pennsylvania when we could extract an ample supply from underneath our own ground. Allowing natural gas to be extracted will put New Yorkers back to work and provide an energy source that has helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Mr. Cuomo has all the information he needs to make the argument that this is the correct path to take.”

We couldn’t agree more, and we could not have said it better.
