Fracking Danger: Read It Yourself
I am a former resident of Pennsylvania and have family and friends who live in “hotbed” areas of hydraulic fracturing.
In light of all the recent legislation action on Senate Bill 820, the “fast-track” fracking bill, I want to tell N.C. citizens how frightened I am for us all, especially for those who reside in the proposed mining sites. Please Google Amity, Pa., plus fracking, and read the horror stories for yourselves.
Also, please go to the Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Water and Air website and read through the entire “list of the harmed,” which currently has more than 200 entries on it and is always being updated. Read this list and then listen to your heart.
As far as hydraulic fracturing bringing jobs to the locals, that’s a joke! Most gas workers are experienced workers from other states, such as Texas and Oklahoma.
Many states and countries throughout the world have made fracking illegal. Why is North Carolina rushing into something that is only going to bring harm to its citizens, as well as to the animals and environment?
Please read “the list” and then contact your representatives and senators, as well as Gov. Perdue.
