New report on oil and gas spills in New York State

A new report from a New York company details 270 oil and gas spills in New York State over the past 30 years. According to the company, Toxics Targeting, these uncontrolled releases caused fires, explosions, massive pollution releases, contaminated drinking water sources, home evacuations, tainted farmland and widespread threats to wetlands, streams, ponds, aquifers and other "sensitive receptors."  They say many of these problems have exceeded clean up standards for decades, and 65 of them reportedly do not meet clean-up standards up to 26 years after being reported. This is just one example of the daunting environmental challenges posed by new oil and gas development across the country.
