We Have a Responsibility to Protect Resources Vital to Human Survival

Excerpt from Jerusalem 'NY residents' letters calling for a ban on hydrofracking:

“We have a responsibility to protect resources vital to human survival. We require water to maintain life and if we are not vigilant in maintaining clean water, we are accountable to future generations. The greed of the gas companies -- to exploit the natural gas resources for huge profits at the expense of rural cultures and economies -- is unconscionable.”
