ETV Interviews Zephyr Teachout, Democratic Primary Candidate for Governor of NYS, 2014

Originally posted on The Environment TV:

Zephyr Teachout spoke at a town hall meeting in Manakating, Sullivan County and was then interviewed by ETV and Bruce Ferguson about her views, vision and plans on Fracking, Climate Change, Energy’s job market, Toxic Waste, NYS’s ability to go 100% renewable and more. Primary candidate Teachout has won two attempts to knock her off September 9th’s Democratic Primary ballot. An Associated Press release stated that there are no more plans to appeal these court decisions. The Interview included:
-Climate Change: The Science Is In
-NYS can lead on Renewables
-Renewables= more jobs, Fracking= less jobs
-Fracking is a false promise and a dangerous promise
-Fracking puts a damper on Upstate NY’s Agricultural development
-Fracking is not a jobs plan; it’s a Toxic plan
-Gov. Cuomo has been swayed by his big money donors or he’d ban Fracking NOW and ban its Waste products from being transported into NYS
