All LAND OWNERS who attended presented a calm, undeniable presence and it is very much appreciated!! We need to stand up more frequently than we have in the recent past. Seems that we may have been too courteous and certianly way too trusting of our state leadership!! THANK YOU

Dear Friends, Landowners, and Natural Gas Supporters,

Over the past several weeks I’ve been hearing stronger and stronger words of impatience, frustration, and anger from supporters upset by the latest delays in releasing the SGEIS. I too feel the same way!

We were promised that the SGIES would be based on science and released by the end of summer. Instead we’re being strung along with more delays for the sake of political pandering to an emotionally charged crusade waged by a vocal anti-gas minority. Our rights and desires are not just being ignored, they’re being crucified! We’re being taken advantage of when the science has proven that there is no reason to do so!

Who wouldn’t get frustrated by such a lack of leadership?

To top it all off, this coming Saturday (September 15th) anti-gas protestors and candidates promoting their mis-information will have a “rally” at Otsiningo Park in Binghamton NY. Timed to coincide with the weekly farmers market that the rally will be near, they will be telling everyone that FRACKING will destroy our water and food!

Can you believe that??!!

Speakers will include protestors who have led misleading campaigns like Sue Rapp of Vestal Residents for Safe Energy, anti-gas political candidates such as candidate for US Congress, Dan Lamb, and candidate for Broome County Executive, Tarik Abdelazim, and anti-gas author and protestor, Dr. Sandra Steingraber. It is being organized by a professional activist employed by the anti-gas group Citizen’s Action of New York (an affiliate of the national Anti-gas and activism group US Action, just so you know that this is being orchestrated on a national level), Isaac Silberman-Gorn.
Are you getting mad yet?!

Make no mistake. This isn’t about the science and facts anymore. This is now about politics. More specifically, for the protestors it is about the politics of instilling unwarranted, misplaced, and untrue fear in the public. That is the goal of the protestors’ rally this weekend, spreading propaganda, pure and simple.
Doesn’t that just burn you up!? It does me!!

Well, now it’s time to put that anger to positive use!!
For us, this “rally” is a great opportunity to refute the lies that have been proven to have not even the slightest bit of evidence or credibility backing them up. It is great chance to ask the speakers where their evidence of certain doom and gloom is. Mix in with the crowd, and ask the tough questions that they can't answer! It is the time to show the public how baseless and wrong the protestors’ fear mongering is.

So I’m asking you to be there. Please bring money to buy locally grown goods, and responsible mature attitudes! But most of all bring the message that Natural Gas development has been and will be safe and responsible. We need to start waging a public information campaign and getting our faces and voices out in public has to happen. We need to respectfully, calmly, and professionally let the public hear our message that natural gas development is safe and beneficial for all. We need to start this campaign this weekend.
Please be at Otsiningo Park at 10:30 AM (to possibly as late as 1:00PM if you can), near the farmers market, on Saturday September 15th.

Thankyou or all who came and stood with me you made a difference. Almost every car that drove by our signage that included "natural gas jobs welcome here" & "Stop the Lies" were giving us a thumbs up. One car even stopped and told me he was a democrat who is crossing the party line to vote for Hannah because Lamb scares the hell out of him. AGAIN thanks for the support and the strong showing of landowners who simply want science and facts to prevail in the state with the best regulations in the world
