NY Daily News says let science guide gas drilling

An editorial in today’s New York Daily News highlights the just-published study from the University of Texas confirming that there are environmental benefits to gas drilling and calls on Governor Cuomo to let science be his guide in lifting the moratorium on gas drilling in New York.

Researchers analyzed 190 natural gas wells across the country and found that there were fewer raw fuel leaks than previously believed.

The editorial points out that since the state imposed a moratorium, “the scientific case for allowing well-regulated fracking to go forward in upstate New York has grown with each of the 63 months that state officials have been dithering.”
