Promoting Climate Stewardship

January 26, 2015

The Viatorian Community joined the Conference of Major Superiors of Men in applauding New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who in December announced a ban on fight fracking imagefracking, or hydraulic fracturing.

Fracking is a process for extracting natural gas by injecting water and chemicals deep into the ground.

New York’s ban came six and a half years after ProPublica, an independent, investigative news outlet based in New York, raised concerns that the drilling could threaten both the state’s water supply and its residents’ health.

The coverage led activists around the country to lobby against fracking and instead promote good stewardship of the country’s natural resources.
