Fracking is a drilling method that damges bedrock a mile below and forces natural gas to the surface with a mix of water, sand, and chemicals that are linked to cancer. New York State lawmakers are now reviewing a bill to make fracking legal throughout the entire state. Musicians including Natalie Merchant, Citizen Cope, Joan Osborne and Tracy Bonham will join the "New Yorkers Against Fracking" rally and concert in Albany this Tuesday in hopes of encouraging Governor Andrew Cuomo to not pass the bill. The rally will be held late afternoon at the West Capitol Lawn and will a concert following at 7:00 PM at the Egg Empire State Plaza. [Billboard] [Photo via]
