Activists deliver anti-drilling petitions to Gov. Corbett

Posted: May 02, 2013

Anti-drilling activists calling for a moratorium on Marcellus Shale natural gas development in Pennsylvania on Tuesday presented petitions they say contain more than 100,000 names to Gov. Corbett's office in Harrisburg.

The online petition, organized by PennEnvironment, calls shale-gas drilling "one of the greatest threats to Pennsylvania's environment and public health in decades," and calls for a halt to gas extraction until it is proven safe.

Other organizations involved in the drive include Clean Water Action, Food and Water Watch, Berks Gas Truth, Protecting Our Waters and Delaware Riverkeeper Network.
