The environmental group Food & Water Watch published an ad on Tuesday in The Des Moines Register urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to fight against hydraulic fracking.
The ad states:
“Governor Cuomo, America is looking to you. Stand up for people over pollution. Don’t allow a single fracked shale gas well in New York. This is your chance to be a national leader on climate. Your choice will be remembered forever.”
