Mark Ruffalo: Gas drilling is not all right in the Catskills

HollywoodNews.com: Mark Ruffalo, star of indie hit “The Kids Are All Right,” is crusading against gas drilling in the Catskill Mountains of New York.

Turns out the actor has a 27 acre second home there which he bought as an Off Broadway actor 12 years ago in the play “This Is Our Youth.”

When he heard there might be gas drilling in the Sullivan country area, he compiled information. “And none of it was good,” the actor tells New York newspaper The Times Herald-Record.

As a child in Kenosha, Wis., Ruffalo witnessed a polluted Lake Michigan where he saw fish “with bulbous tumors.”

Ruffalo went before a town meeting in Cochecton, New York and news conferences in Albany and New York City.

The actor’s message about protecting the land: “It’s not us against us,” he says, before accusing the gas companies he fears will spoil the land. “It’s us against them.”
