What Do You Love?

“…we love a great many things – birds and trees and books, and all things beautiful, and horses and rifles and children and hard work and the joy of life”.

Theodore Roosevelt, talking of his home life at Sagamore Hill.

What is Life?

“What is life?

It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.

— Crowfoot, Blackfoot Warrior

New Evidence That Natural Gas Fracking Has Impacted Groundwater

Lisa Bracken of Project Forsaken has ground breaking information that fracking has impacted groundwater. She writes, “It directly contradicts the industry’s long-held argument that it is a safe and benign practice which has never impacted groundwater. As disturbingly, it also reveals a situation wherein a state agency acted to suppress public health information and misinform a congressional inquiry…This information is in the hands of those with the authority and expertise to corroborate it, and the story will be forthcoming soon”.

Anyone interested in reading about the health and environmental effects of hydraulic fracturing should take a look at Lisa’s website. Her’s is not a pleasant story, but it should be read by all who are threatened with the prospect of fracking in your neighborhoods and backyards.
