Artists Against Fracking includes big names like Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Alec Baldwin.
The group hopes to influence Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH’-moh) as he decides whether to allow shale gas drilling using high-volume hydraulic fracturing, known as hydrofracking.
The group is calling on Cuomo to ban the practice in New York.
Cuomo is expected to allow drilling to begin on a limited basis near the Pennsylvania state line.
