List of Health Care Pros Who Oppose Gas Drilling in NY

boycottA list of 250+ physicians and other health care professionals, along with the usual group of opposition groups, sent a letter to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo yesterday requesting more study of shale gas drilling’s affects on health before approving new regulations and issuing permits to drill. A copy of their letter is embedded below.

A copy of the list of “health care professionals” which includes doctors, nurses, psychologists, veterinarians, dentists, professors, students and others is listed below in case those who support drilling might want to re-think whether or not they continue using the services of these people given their activist stance against drilling.

The letter asserts that the current draft Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement (SGEIS) does not sufficiently address the affects of hydraulic fracturing on human health. It also states anything less than a 180 day review period for the new regulations is not acceptable. (Funny how they’ve read the document to know it doesn’t sufficiently address human health concerns, yet they need more time to keep reading it. Perhaps they’ll find it does address those concerns after all?)

Here is the entire list of “health care professionals” who oppose drilling (organization-only and non-NY names removed):
