  • Ramapough Lunaape Nation | Letter to Gov. Coumo about fracking
    a New Jersey facility and discharged into the Delaware River Unfortunately Governor Christie has vetoed all of these bipartisan bills So our state is at risk We fear that if you allow fracking to go forward in New York fracking will also be permitted in the Delaware River basin The Delaware River is a national treasure and the invaluable services it provides underpin the economy of our region Approximately 17 million residents of the Delaware River Basin states states including 2 9 million residents of New Jersey rely on the river for clean drinking water Recent scientific studies justify taking precautionary measures like this Governor Cuomo It is becoming increasingly clear that modern drilling and fracking for oil and gas amounts to a large uncontrolled experiment on public health and the environment and will only contribute to climate change resulting in more damaging storms like Sandy You can be a national leader by protecting our drinking water protecting our communities addressing climate change and promoting clean energy and energy efficiency by not lifting the moratorium on high volume hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in your state Please keep the moratorium on drilling in NY to protect your state and the region from this dangerous practice Sincerely Pages 501C3 Anti extraction movement in the US gains momentum Archives Climate Change March NYC 9 21 14 Contact Free screening of Gasland Part II Saturday June 15th Gas Pipeline Genealogy Tribal Enrollment History Powwow 2012 Photos The Longhouse Info Community Bulletin Board Directions to Sally s Field Education Opportunities LiHeap Ramapough Powwow 2013 Tribal Council Tribal Office Numbers U S Dept Veteran Affairs for Native Americans Latest News New plan for paint sludge cleanup raises anger in Ringwood Letter addressing toxic cleanup Letter to Gov Coumo about fracking Lunaape Gathering 2015 T Shirt
