New York state has newly banned fracking due to its known hazards and risks. But New Yorkers are still at risk from hazardous gas facilities and pipelines, pollution, food chain contamination and other problems of the fracking boom. Ithaca-based non-profit, The Bioscience Resource Project, is hosting Beyond the Ban: Fracking, Health & Infrastructure in New York State from Port Ambrose to Seneca Lake. Sandra Steingraber, Michelle Bamberger and Robert Oswald will provide an overview of post-ban fracking threats to New York state. The Bioscience Resource Project and CSI (Community Science Institute)will have information tables and Buffalo Street Books will have books for sale at this event.
