The chief lobbying organization that backs high-volume hydrofracking today is releasing a graphic that is aimed at illustrating how much time has elapsed since the state’s defacto moratorium on hydrofracking has been in place.

In the 1,882 days, a presidential administration has changed, Billy Joel was still performing at the since demolished Shea Stadium and Andrew Cuomo was a sophomore attorney general.

The graphic from the Independent Oil and Gas Association underscores the impatience the energy industry feels toward the state and its ongoing review of the health effects of hydrofracking.

At the urging of environmental groups, the state undertook a Department of Health review of the process earlier this year which is yet to be completed.
