Natural Gas Forum Thursday In Albany
5/29/2013 (Updated 10:38:51 PM)Dispelling myths about natural gas development--that will be the theme of a forum in Albany on Thursday hosted by pro-fracking groups.
Members of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York say they want to debunk a lot of false information about the health effects of natural gas drilling. The organization says health professionals report no unusual concerns.
One of the speakers will be the CEO of Endless Mountains Health Systems, Rex Catlin. He'll be speaking on the affects of drilling in Montrose, Pennsylvania.
"This will be the second CEO of a hospital that we've actually heard from. He'll be there talking about the health affects of drilling in that county, which I think people really need to hear up in Albany.
They need to hear what's and these are the experts that are going to be able to give that testimony," said President of the Joint Landowners Coalition, Dan Fitzsimmons.
"This is a stacked panel. Every member besides the moderator has a history of perpetuating industry propaganda, it's really more of the same and it's not surprising," said Isaac Silberman Gorn of Citizen Action.
The forum will be held Thursday in the Legislative Office Building at The Capitol.
