Acclaimed Chef Restaurateur Mario Batali Signs on to Our Campaign

December 12th, 2011 § 2 comments § permalink

Critically acclaimed chef, restaurateur, award-winning author, and television personality Mario Batali has written to Governor Cuomo urging him to ban hydrofracking for natural gas in the farmlands and watersheds of New York State. Mario, with his business partner Joe Bastianich, has created a restaurant and culinary empire in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Singapore. He generously supports many charities, and has spoken out on numerous environmental causes. At the time of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Mario made his thoughts clear on the future of fossil fuels in an interview on Planet Green: “It is simply and obviously inevitable that we will have to move away from non-sustainable energy resources. … The writing is on the wall and we are simply mindless idiots not to read it.” Please join Mario today by writing to Governor Cuomo asking him to ban fracking in New York State.
