Hydraulic Fracturing in New York State

Archived since: Aug, 2011

Description:

For a number of years, the citizens of New York State have engaged in a rich debate concerning the prospect of hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale. While some of the discussion and events have been captured by news outlets, much of the information is appearing on web sites and social media. Unfortunately, web sites disappear over time and important content can vanish. To ensure that this important trove of information is available to future generations of scholars, the Cornell University Library is creating a permanent archive of the web sites concerned with the issue of hydraulic fracturing in New York.
