Cuomo Delays Decision on Fracking in NY...Again

It appears energy policy in New York state is now being guided by Yoko Ono. Gov. Cuomo has once again delayed a decision on whether or not to allow fracking in New York, a decision which garnered him a pat on the back from Yoko. Even the NY Times says politics, not science, is driving the decision:

Officials who have discussed the matter with the governor have said that his hesitation is principally political, not scientific. Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, faces strident opposition on his party’s left, and activists are continually protesting in Albany against fracking.

Last month the Times revealed a year-old report produced by the state which concluded fracking was safe for drinking water. The unpublished report was leaked to the paper by "an expert who did not believe it should be kept secret."
