Fracking. Google wiki fracking environmental concerns.
Man - this is serious. This has crossed some line in the sand for me. This has gone from underhanded to blatant. This fracking thing is so damn bad and evil and outrageous that if you put it in a draft of storyline of novel, you're editor would say "too unrealistic".
What the #%^*&&$ are you people thinking in Pennsylvania and New York??? The people who actually own the land the frackers use get a little money. They can buy brand new trucks and put an addition on the house maybe. It's no windfall by any means. And the taxpayers get a pittance if anything. Jobs are created but most are people from outside your area. You can sell them hot dogs and groceries and beer but that ain't gonna make up for your water being poisoned. So hardly any reward personally or for taxpayers. No upside really.
Huge downside with your grandkids growing FLIPPERS and fire coming out of your FAUCETS. . Yet for industry, huge upside.
Usually the evil and corruption is more hidden. This time it's right out in the open. The governors in some cases are coming right out and saying they're for fracking! They're being blatantly bankrolled by corporations and their lobbyists that benefit from this. This is cartoon-like.
And yet the people of the northeast for the most part are just shrugging their shoulders when they should be marching in the streets. People - this is your damn water supply. Your kids drink this!!! The fracking process has caused EARTHQUAKES in places that never had themfor crying out loud (numerous respected scientists have confirmed this).
What the $&@$&@ is it going to take for citizens to wake the $@@&&% up and take to the streets????? I mean, REALLY!!!! This is absurd. This is becoming a cartoon of a country rather than an actual country.
I want to see people running to the window like in the movie "Network" shouting: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dib2-HBsF08&feature=youtube_gdata_player
I mean, look at this people!!!! Look at what this is doing to you. Look at the quality of the sources of research. MIT. Columbia University. Duke University. Look at this Wikipedia layout of the environmental factors. Then run to your window, open it and start shouting: "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE!!!!!". For crying out loud, your governors are getting money directly inserted into their campaigns from these huge corporations and are selling out the future of your state. Wake the $&@%€ up!!!! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hydraulic_fracturing&mobileaction=view_normal_site#Environmental_concerns
Man, if these politicians and industry folks tried to get away with this out here in a progressive town in the west, they'd be quickly experiencing overwhelming response in the form of massive nonviolent protest at the doorstep of their offices. Why you folks in the northeast are rolling over for this is beyond me. Don't you care about your kids and grand kids?
I feel like we humans have crossed some line here where our instinct for survival isn't kicking in. Need to perform CPR or use defibrillator or something.....some form of nonviolent direct action to stir the souls of this generation for the benefit of those that will follow.
Please see excellent documentary "GASLAND" to learn what we can do about this.
