Restaurant Industry Moves Against Gas Drilling

Restaurant Industry Moves Against Gas Drilling by Glenn Collins, June 14, 2012, Associated Press
More than 90 kitchen celebrities and food-business leaders have publicly given their support to Chefs for the Marcellus, an anti-fracturing advocacy group named after the natural-gas-rich Marcellus Shale rock formation that runs under several states. … “We’re trying to raise a voice against this, signing petitions and writing letters,” said Mr. Telepan, who said he had immersed himself in the fracking literature and was disturbed about the impact of the drilling process on farmers, livestock and people. “This goes beyond affecting chefs, it could have a huge impact on those who live in upstate New York. The drinking water, and the land, and the food upstate will be affected – and then all of us will be affected.”
