Fracking Friday finds Andi-Roo pissed and disillusioned.
It’s been a while since I’ve hosted a Fracking Friday here so I thought I’d check in on Josh Fox and the world of GasLand to see what’s cooking. I almost wish I hadn’t, as there has been more twat-waffling than I can bear.
Selfish people — go play in traffic, would you? Because you’re mean and you don’t play well with others and you don’t care if we get sick &/or die. That’s pretty goddamn ass-tastic. Now I remember why it took me so long to write a Fracking Friday post — because they get me all riled up and make me want to spit on people’s faces.
Take Some Fracking Action on Fracking Friday!
New York is currently under siege as Fracking fuckers have taken over their Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
“The New York State DEC has issued proposed regulations (“Regs”) for fracking even though the environmental review (the SGEIS) and their own limited public health review has [sic] not been completed.”
By clicking on this link and adding your name, you can take action to Ban Fracking In New York. Since I have friends in New York and I happen to also like that state, I’d be ever so grateful if you took ten seconds here.
Closer to home for me,
“the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is in the process of transferring a 17-acre area in Central Ohio that contains 7.5 acres of natural forested wetlands to a private developer.”
By clicking on this link and adding your name, you can take action to Help Save the Sawmill Wetlands Education Area. Since I live in Ohio, I’d be ever so grateful if you went the extra mile for me.
Fracking Friday notes on things that are all Fracked up:
Some douche bag in charge of a pro-Fracking study at Texas University kind-of, sort-of forgot to divulge that he had received money and stocks from the board on which he served that was kind-of, sort-of running the damn study. I mean, I know it’s Texas, so this kind of thing should be expected, but even I’m a bit shocked over this.
Plus? The douche bag’s name is Chip Groat. Doesn’t he just SOUND like an ass-hat? He must be. Shortly after the shit hit the proverbial fan, he “retired”. Sounds like a seriously harsh punishment he got there. My favorite part of this article, however, is the final sentence:
“The university says it accepts the review’s recommendations, including strengthening its conflict of interest policies.”
Um, ya think?
