The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had hoped to hold hearings on hydraulic fracturing in New York this week. They were scheduled at Binghamton University, but when it was learned that potentially thousands of people would attend, the EPA moved them to a larger venue in Syracuse, 65 miles north. The move prompted howls among groups who had planned to fly-in from all over the country, leading EPA to postpone the hearings until next month.
