New York and Fracking

As Gov. Cuomo considers his fracking options:

Oil and gas drilling companies are increasingly finding it more economical to recycle drilling water for future jobs rather than disposing of it in the injection wells, which has enraged environmentalists. More than 16 percent of water used in Marcellus Shale fracking operations is being recycled, up from more than 12 percent last year. And the market for recycling services is growing; in the past year, one such company has started three new recycling operations to meet demand, up from one last year.

So why do so many New York environmentalists hate the planet?
