Upstate New York and especially the Southern Tier is a wasteland of fracking victims denied the opportunity to economically survive by fractivist miscreants.
Justice delayed has no time stamp; there are only victims and, in the case of my part of Upstate New York, the Southern Tier, they’re fracking victims. It is sad when people such as Steingraber, Ingraffea, Ruffalo, Gore and lower-on-the-totem-pole provocateurs and purveyors of misinformation (e.g., Fox, Forpeace, Scoggins, Huston, Stevens) uncareingly go to war against struggling families and property owners in the name of ideology. Not one of them can live without fossil fuels, yet they happily deny landowners in New York and the Delaware Valley access to economic assets that would pay off mortgages, tuitions, medical bills and much more, as they sit upon two of the richest gas plays in the nation. We are the victims of their shallow narrow-minded selfishness; the only fracking victims who truly exist.
