Speaking last week at a press conference for "Artists Against Fracking" in New York City, Sean Lennon responds to the question "What would your father have said about Fracking if he were with us today?"

Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon launched Artists Against Fracking -- an initiative of musicians, actors, and other artists -- to build awareness, and to stop fracking. The initiative came together quickly as a response after it was leaked to the New York Times in June of last year that New York Governor Cuomo is considering lifting the state moratorium on fracking.

Over 130 artists came together in a matter of weeks to form the initiative, including Alec Baldwin, The Beastie Boys, Beck, Bonnie Raitt, Carrie Fisher, David Byrne, Julianne Moore, Lady Gaga, and Leonardo DiCaprio.The goal of Artists Against Fracking is to ban fracking and “For the world to embrace sustainable living and develop renewable energies through economically-viable alternatives to fossil fuel.”
