As activists gear up for Sunday’s Keystone XL Pipeline action, featuring Robert Redford and Julia Louis Dreyfus among the thousands of Tar Sands drilling opponents to surround the Whitehouse, fracking, another harmful fossil fuel technology has been making the news.
Recent reports reveal that hydraulic fracturing, a form of natural gas drilling that involves injecting toxin-laden water deep underground, may have been responsible for earthquakes in England and Oklahoma and the Environmental Protection agency announced that it will investigate the drilling method’s impact on drinking water.
So, it seemed like a good time to revisit a little video that first went viral back in May: My Water’s On Fire Tonight.
Oppose hydraulic fracturing in Ohio by signing Say No to Fracking: Ohio’s Health and Environment is Not for Sale and put the Earthjustice petition over the top by signing Tell the EPA: Reduce Fracking Air Pollution, which is almost at its goal.
And, if you are in the Washington DC area, it’s still not too late to sign up for the Tar Sands action scheduled for 2pm on 11/6 at the Whitehouse.
