    I am writing to you from Bulgaria and in the name of thousands of Bulgarians regarding the upcoming ecological disaster in our country.

    In the middle of June 2011 our government granted a five-year permit to the U.S. company Chevron to carry out shale gas exploration in the most fertile part of our country – “Dobruja”, for 30 million euros. There is much evidence that the technology of exploration and extraction of shale gas is very controversial and it can damage the environment. We are trying to organise ourselves via facebook – so far we have formed a group of about 10 000 enthusiasts – in order to inform the Bulgarian population about the dangers of exploration and extraction of shale gas.

    Our request is: We know that there are a lot of people in the US that are harmed by the hidraulic fracturing consequences How about if we coordinate our activities , record them and give them to medias for broadcasting IN BOTH OUR COUNTRIES SIMULTANEOUSLY?It is ever increasingly difficult to overcome the obstacles of our famous bureaucratic machine, as well as the pessimistic attitude of some fellow Bulgarian citizens, fed up with the statements of the Bulgarian Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism, and a group of biased scientists from the Bulgarian Academy of Science. According to them, the exploration of shale gas is safe and no different than the exploration of oil and natural gas, and the extraction itself doesn’t represent any danger to the environment. Of course, there are many other specialists who are saying the opposite, but they are given no publicity, which doesn’t surprise us at all.

    For contacts: or facebook.

    With regards,

    A Bulgarian Civil Movement, which wants to preserve the beauty and integrity of our country’s nature.

    I just saw the passage of the gas drilling ban in your town. ShaleShock made a good video. Could you send me a copy of the ordnance? My town (Laporte PA) is considering passing a similar ordnance, and I think our lawyer might like some extra information.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for the interest. As you may know, we are currently being sued by a gas company because of this ban. Which will set the precedent for all drilling in NYS. We are going to win this, and it will show that zoning does work at a small town level and cannot be dictated by large corporations.

      Our amendments to the zoning can be seen on our town’s website:

      Thanks, and keep up the good work.

    Let’s send Senator Libous a message on election day. His pro-hydrofracking ally Debbie Preston is running for Broome County Executive. Encourage all of your contacts in Broome County to vote against Debbie on election day.

    Congradulations Dryden. I am a former New Yorker (Schenectady) living in Colorado. We formed a group, Citizens for Huerfano County, and we were forced to sue Royal Dutch Shell when they proposed a big fracking project within 2 miles of our little town. Talk about facing Goliath!
    Unfortunately one of our County Commissioners has a lease with Shell so we will likely never get a ban, but we keep trying. Your success will have repercussions across the county, I am sure. It’s an uphill battle, but there is hope!
