Patriots Win the NY Fracking War!
NY Court: Towns Can Ban Fracking, Drilling
 reports Katie Valentine
at Climate Progress. Big oil drilling companies sued two resisting towns, but the court ruled that anti-fracking town regulations trump state mining laws. Helen Slottje, of the Community Environmental Defense Council created a legal framework for constructing anti-fracking regulation for 170 communities, and her organization is now offering their expertise to communities throughout the US. Way to go, Helen!

This is how YOU can make a difference.
