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.”

Fracking has received criticism for its negative environmental impacts. These include using large amounts of water, groundwater contamination and the release of air emissions such as methane.
