Greetings,

I can hardly believe this, but the Withdraw the 
Revised Draft SGEIS coalition letter is within 
hollering distance of 10,000 signatories only 30 
days after the campaign began. The current count 
is 9,477. It took almost a year to get an equal 
number of signatories to the 2009 Withdraw the Draft SGEIS coalition letter!!!

I am immensely grateful to everyone who signed 
the coalition letter and is beating the bushes 
for more signatories. I especially would like to 
thank Dr. Marybeth Carleton and her MoveOn 
colleagues. Wow, you totally rock. [Hmmmm. Well, 
if MoveOn is splitting with Cuomo and the Dems, 
that would be a good thing. But I won't hold my 
breath. - Mitchel] Thanks, also, to Dr. Larysa 
Dyrszka, who has worked so hard to organize 
health professionals on shale gas hazards.

Please keep pushing. Find more signatories BY

Governor Cuomo is reportedly under immense and 
increasing pressure. I am giving you a big heads 
up that we must make sure he does not strike a 
deal to allow horizontal hydrofracturing in the 
Southern Tier while excluding other areas. There 
is a chance that this deal could get done during 
a possible Special Session of the Legislature 
tentatively scheduled for next week. See: 
<http://www.theithacajournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011111280311>http://www.theithacajournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011111280311 
and

The Governor reportedly could be working with 
State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Thomas 
Libous.  Senator Libous strongly supports 
Marcellus Shale drilling in the Southern Tier: 
<http://www.pressconnects.com/article/20111016/NEWS01/110160333/Southern-Tier-senator-fracking-opponents-Butt-out>http://www.pressconnects.com/article/20111016/NEWS01/110160333/Southern-Tier-senator-fracking-opponents-Butt-out

You should immediately contact Governor Cuomo to 
oppose any drilling proposal that does not afford 
equal protection to all New Yorkers. If 
horizontal hydrofracturing is not safe for all 
areas, it cannot be safe for any areas. That 
critical shortcoming of the Revised Draft SGEIS 
is addressed by the coalition letter.

You should also contact your State Senator and Senator Libous ASAP:

Phone: (877) 854-2687

Email: <mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask]

In conclusion, the Revised Draft SGEIS comment 
period has been extended until 1/11/12.

CRANK IT UP. POUR IT ON. CALL AND EMAIL GOVERNOR CUOMO INCESSANTLY.

Don't stop till you drop. This is it.  Kill the 
Revised Draft SGEIS. Big Finish.

Stay tuned for more developments.

Best,

Walter

Withdraw Revised Draft SGEIS Coalition Letter 
Alert at: 
<http://www.toxicstargeting.com/MarcellusShale/alerts/2011/11/03/new_letter>http://www.toxicstargeting.com/MarcellusShale/alerts/2011/11/03/new_letter

1. Sign the Coalition letter requesting that 
Governor Cuomo immediately withdraw the RD SGEIS 
because it fails to fulfill Executive Order No. 
41 and has 17 major inadequacies identified by 
the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and many others.

The coalition letter is excruciatingly detailed. 
Read it and you will become a walking encyclopedia of RD SGEIS shortcomings.
