State report: Fracking can be done safely

Jan 03, 2013 9:02 am
Danny Hakim is reporting in The New York Times an analysis and other health assessments completed last year concludes the process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, can be done safely. The eight-page analysis and other health assessments "have been closely guarded by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and his administration as the governor weighs whether to approve fracking." It was leaked to The Times by "an expert who did not believe it should be kept secret." The document indicates fracking can be done safely within the regulatory system the state has been developing for several years. A spokeswoman for the State Department of Environmental Conservation said the analysis obtained by The Times was out of date. “The document you have is merely a summary, is nearly a year old and there will be substantial changes to that version,” she said.
