Ithaca scholar donates award to coalition

Mar 27, 2012 2:33 pm
Brian Nearing writes in the Times Union about Sandra Steingraber, an Ithaca biologist who donated most of a $100,000 award to a coalition of organizations dedicated to preventing the process of natural gas-extraction commonly referred to as hydrofracking, in New York. Steingraber, an environmental studies scholar at Ithaca College and a cancer survivor, has written two books about cancer and the environment. She received the Heinz Foundation award last fall and eventually made the decision to donate the funds to New Yorkers Against Fracking, a coalition that includes Catskill Mountainkeeper, Citizen Action of New York, Food & Water Watch, Frack Action, Water Defense and the Working Families Party.
