Court Rules That NY Towns Can Ban Fracking And Drilling

From the

by Katie Valentine

The New York Court of Appeals upheld the ruling of a lower court that local governments have the authority to decide how land is used, which includes deciding whether or not fracking and drilling should be allowed on that land. The plaintiffs in those lawsuits argued that New York’s oil, gas and mining law takes precedence over local zoning laws, but in rulings both by a lower court and now the Court of Appeals, that claim was overturned.

If something sounds like a really bad idea, it probably is.

But I’d wager few of us have ever heard of a ‘jailhouse environmentalist.’ Truth is I didn’t think such a thing existed. Well, it’s real, and his name is Bryant Arroyo, a bilingual Puerto Rican who has spent a third of his life in prison, at SCI-Mahanoy in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
