… frack, baby, frack.
Donald Trump, the celebrity real estate developer and reality television producer of the love-him-or-hate-him variety, weighed in on New York’s hydrofracking debate via Twitter on Friday, making it apparent he stands very clearly in the pro-fracking camp.
New York should Frack. Thousands of jobs and millions in revenue. NY would be a truly rich state.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2013
As the Cuomo administration continues to weigh whether or not to allow high-volume fracking in New York, more and more celebrities have started to get involved. Actress Susan Sarandon joined Yoko Ono and her son, Sean Lennon, for a trip last week to rural Pennsylvania to tour communities in the Marcellus Shale region. (Lennon and Ono also traveled to Albany this month to speak out against fracking and help highlight what they said were more than 200,000 formal comments submitted to the Department of Environmental Conservation on its proposed regulations.)
