The mother and son team launched Artists Against Fracking in 2012 in a bid to urge New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to reject proposals allowing the practice, which critics claim can poison nearby water supplies with dangerous chemicals, near their home in Delaware County.
They hand-delivered over 200,000 letters written by protesters to the Department of Environmental Conservation in Albany, New York last week (11Jan13) and on Thursday (17Jan13), they headed to Pennsylvania to explore the damage allegedly caused by fracking there.
In a Twitter.com post, Ono writes, "On bus to Dimock Pa (Pennsylvania) with @seanonolennon to see fracking damage. It's more than we imagined. I'm glad we came here to see it for ourselves."
