This is what just came to my email and I had to share it with you all! The following is quoted directly from my email.

In a document summarizing its findings, the New York State Department of
Environmental Conservation said:

"Based on unavoidable adverse environmental impacts and uncertainty regarding
the science surrounding high-volume hydraulic fracturing and its potential
impacts to public health and the environment, the Department finds that the best
course of action is to select the No Action alternative. Selection of the No
Action alternative means that...[fracking] will be prohibited in New York
State."

This ban would not have been possible if you and I hadn't fought this
devastating practice, which blasts millions of gallons of water mixed with toxic
chemicals into the ground to extract gas from hard-to-reach deposits deep in the
earth.

This practice is too dangerous to proceed in New York, and now New York's
historic statewide ban on fracking is the law.
