You want to watch something scary for Halloween? Well, I suggest the award-winning Gasland, or perhaps this short film from from an eleven year old from Boulder, Colorado (below). She tells us all about fracking, and what’s going on in our state. It’s a really big issue in my hometown/county this year, hence the bumper stickers that are now in the process of being made (above).
What the frack can we do? Study up, make your voices heard. The damage that will be done, if this goes through, lasts a long, long, long, long time.
We all know we have the technology and the ability to move to better systems (solar–wind–ocean power–etc.) but the forces behind keeping the U.S.A. polluted have MONEY. They want to do things their way, best interests of the future be damned.
So send a letter. Attend a City Council meeting. Do something–before it’s too late.

Great! I forwarded it to two of my fractivistas (and they’ll take it from there.) Lucy
Good luck. When I hear about the fracking mess it makes me think that people will not allow a single quiet, beautiful place to go unspoiled.
And just for temporary profit! It is tragic and we need to do a lot of work to remedy this.
THAAAAAAAANKS! I posted it to FB and sent it along it’s way on email. Excellent!

Thanks for the post. We are living in South Dakota for my husband to work on a power plant to install scrubbers which is only one of Obama’s initiatives. The small town in Cheyenne didn’t want his company to do this. They preferred fracking. Hopefully they’ll come around.
