Well, that's settled. WHCU AM reports:
The Town of Ithaca has become the first municipality in Tompkins County to ban hydrofracking for natural gas.In order to avoid the appearance of hypocrisy, the bedroom suburb's town board also banned smart phones, iPads, radios, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioning, cars, trucks, buses, farm tractors, electric lights, air travel, universities and modern medicine .
The ban came Monday night as the Town Board unanimously voted in favor of changes in the zoning code clarifying drilling will never be allowed within the town.
