Ladies and gents, sorry for our absence. There is renewed interest in spending time maintaining this site, as we have primarily been relying on our Facebook page to deliver headlines, but we will begin to again post periodic items here as well. Facebook is certainly the place for up to the minute news, we urge you to check out our group and request to join. The communities and activists that are now binding together in an effort to protect our limited water supply is mind-bending! It was just two years ago most were saying “what’s fracking?” Look how far we have come, folks,
Please dig deep and continue your efforts! You are our only hope. Thanks for all that you do.
The masses now know that fracking is a high-risk operation, that regulations are too lax, that inspectors are barely existent, and that the worse case scenario, meaning a water supply being contaminated – yes, that can happen. That has happened. That happens.
Still unclear on that? Goto google.com and enter “water contamination fracking” and have fun. You will read some arguments that fracking is not the problem. Keep reading. It doesn’t take long to get the idea.
And here’s a few random related headlines to get you going:
