Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy
It was disheartening to read Ralph Cavanagh, Senior Attorney and Co-Director, Energy & Transportation Program, state that NRDC supports natural gas exports. The simple fact is, a gas export market can only be supported by shale gas, and that means fracking. NRDC's policy, as described in Businessweek, threatens to undermine the hard work thousands of Americans (including many members of the NRDC) who are working tirelessly to set the US on a more sensible and sustainable energy course.
Catskill Citizens is circulating the attached letter respectfully asking the NRDC to rethink what we regard as a disastrous policy. Please let us know if your org would like to sign on; we'd like to get this sent out by the end of next week.
