Filed under: Media — abetterworldmedia @ 1:26 pm


Monday, October 17, 6pm EST: Today’s radio show is a Fracking & Spectra Pipeline Roundtable, addressing the dangers of both the proposed legislation in NYS which would allow hydro-fracking and especially the pipeline which would allow the fracked gas right into NYC across the Hudson River, the hearing for which is Oct. 20 (see below for details).


To address these extraordinarily important issues and threats to public safety are: Dr. James Ring, Professor Emeritus of nuclear physics at Hamilton College, Owen Crowley, co-founder of SaneEnergyProject.org, Owen Crowley is a director at United for Action, which organizes for sustainable energy and a healthy future, and which is very active in the struggle against hydraulic fracturing for gas. He also helped found the Sane Energy Project, which is working in opposition to a major gas pipeline proposed for New York and New Jersey. Owen headed economic assistance programs abroad. He has a Masters in Political Economy and International Affairs from Columbia University.


Clare Donahue, spokesperson and activist with SaneEnergyProject.org will also be part of the panel along with City Councilman James F. Gennaro.

In November 2009, Gennaro was elected to a third term as representative for the 24th Council District located in Queens.

Gennaro has received numerous accolades for his work as Chairman of the Council’s Committee on Environmental Protection, and has authored many of the Council’s most progressive environmental bills.

james-gennaroGennaro has spearheaded efforts to cut the city’s globalwarming pollution emissions, protect and restore JamaicaBay, put more “clean air” vehicles on city streets, reduce pesticide use, make the city’s electricity more reliable, clean, and affordable, protect the city’s remaining natural areas, and promote “green buildings”.

This Roundtable will address the serious public health, safety and environmental threats of the current proposals on the table and what we, the public, can actively do about it.
