"This is not about fracking... this is about democracy"




Fracking and all that goes with it is an assault on democracy.  It is corporations invading small towns, public forests, cities, anywhere they want, and doing whatever they want to the environment, air, water, soil, and public health.  Are we going to let it continue, or are we going to demand democracy?  Do we have the right to prevent the destruction of our communities?  Yes, we do!

Josh Fox appears at the beginning of the hour, so you don't have to watch the entire show.

One thing Josh said which impressed me:  In Pennsylvania, there are currently 6,000 gas wells.  The projection  is that eventually there will be 180,000 wells in PA. 

So this is only the beginning.






Dr. Theo Colborn speaks here about the effects of fossil fuel extraction, both vertical and horizontal drilling, and the dangerous chemicals that are released into the air during the drilling process.   Every time.   Methane is not the only or biggest worry.  Fear toluene and benzene!  The damage to healthy children is a big concern.
