Earthquake Skaken, Not Stirred

When you're an ordinary citizen concerned with the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, you write letters to public officials and attend meetings of small organizations fighting to end fracking. There might even be punch and pie at those meetings.If you're a natural gas industry mogul, you're not at those meetings. You're attending a red carpet film screening of pro-fracking documentaries made […]

Hulk Smash Frack

Actor Mark Ruffalo and filmmaker Josh Fox have made a great video on the dangers of fracking, and it addresses many important issues that we should all be considering, such as the millions the gas industry is spending lobbying for pro-fracking laws, and the dangers to communities from fracking. Ruffalo, who played the Incredible Hulk in the recent Avengers movies, was […]

Fracking 101

Gas drillers are funding university research that — surprise surprise surprise — supports the use of fracking to drill for natural gas.  Hydraulic fracturing — commonly known as "fracking" — has been linked to polluted drinking water, water faucets that ignite when in contact with a flame, and earthquakes, and the drillers still refuse to reveal all of the toxic chemicals […]

Get Over It? Not Likely

George Will is so wacky when it comes to denying global warming science, even his fingers wear tinfoil hats.Last Sunday, Will told a TV pundit panel that the record-setting temperatures being set across America are not related to global warming.
