This past week the anti-natural gas crowd held a public meeting in Vestal, New York, Broome County at the Methodist Church. The meeting was sponsored by several anti-shale gas groups including Vestal Residents for Safe Energy, Citizens Action, New Yorkers Against Fracking, Sierra Club, Town of Union Citizens Against Fracking, and City of Binghamton Against Fracking. The groups brought in Adam Flint, Chip Northrup, and Sandra Steingraber to speak against natural gas exploration. Following Steingraber’s presentation she introduced “surprise” speakers (more on that below). While we have all heard these folks speak before, each new telling of their story reveals something new, something bizarre, combined with the same old fairy tales; and how seldom they get their facts correct! It was a trip down bad memory lane!
