Awareness for Cortland
All wealth flows from the environment, not the other way.
Humans have a very hard time with this concept.

How to Use Fracking Map, Hear from Affected People,
You Are Here interactive online tool for tracking New York State frack infrastructure.
Van Etten will be the first place in the region to host the demonstration of an online mapping tool of statewide shale-gas related projects. Although there’s officially a ban on fracking, there is no slowdown in the build-out of infrastructure, including pipelines, compressor stations, gas storage caverns, export terminals, and dumps accepting radioactive frack waste (such as the Chemung County Landfill).
The You Are Here fracking infrastructure map allows viewers to visualize the scale of the industrialization and see how our state is being used to abet this climate-busting technology in other states. It also includes information about the community organizations working against the industrial harms.
The map helps New Yorkers realize we are actually being fracked, says Linda Leeds of FrackbustersNY, who worked on the mapping project along with Sane Energy Project and people from several other groups statewide.
