    As the gas industry pours millions of dollars into radio and TV ads and the debate over gas drilling by means of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," ramps up, concerned New Yorkers need to arm themselves with facts. Join Catskill Mountainkeeper's Wes Gillingham, Earthjustice's Bridget Lee, Environmental Advocates of New York's David Gahl, and Natural Resources Defense Council's Eric Goldstein for a panel discussion about fracking. Find out what's happening on the ground, in the State Legislature, and in the courts, and learn what steps you can take to speak up for the health and safety of New York's waters and our communities. Organized in collaboration with Environmental Advocates of New York.
