Ohio Utica Shale

Sean, Yoko: Imagine no fracking in New York

By Bob Downing Published: November 9, 2012

Yoko Ono and her son, Sean Lennon, have installed a new billboard to attempt to sway New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The message from Artists Against Fracking is: Governor Cuomo, Imagine there's no fracking.

The message with its obvious link to the late John Lennon song comes as New York faces a Nov. 29 deadline for the governor's health study on fracking.

New York is considering lifting a state moratorium against drilling in the Marcellus shale.

"Our message is simple: We want Gov. Cuomo to imagine and guarantee a New York free of the fracking threat to our water, air, beautiful landscapes and climate," Yoko told Rolling Stone.

Added Sean, "Fracking is inherently dirty and dangerous. No amount of regulation can make fracking safe."
