New York group presents file to governor

By Bob Downing Published: July 17, 2012

A compilation of independent scientific studies and reports related to the health impacts of hydrofracking was presented to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo today by a representative of a delegation of medical doctors and scientists.

In a cover letter, the experts have requested a meeting with the governor to discuss his desire for "the facts and logic and science and information," which he says will be the basis for his decision on the controversial gas drilling technique.

The 275­‐page digest, culled from tens of thousands of pages of scientific findings, was prepared expressly for the governor by Grassroots Environmental Education, a non-­profit organization.

The digest, which contains a number of peer­‐reviewed studies that were published after the Department of Environmental Conservation's comment period officially closed in January, is designed to balance studies sponsored by the gas industry, as well as DEC-­commissioned reports that did not include consideration of human health impacts, especially those affecting the most vulnerable populations.

An index to the digest and links to the studies are located on Grassroots Environmental Education's web site at www.grassrootsinfo.org/frackingdigest.html.
