Whatever it takes to get people on the anti-fracking bandwagon, don't replace OktoberFest with Fracktober.

It is our demand for oil and its' by products that makes fracking happen in the first place. If we reduced the amount of oil we used, maybe by using our cars a bit less, heating/cooling our homes a little less etc then there wouldn't be the demand or the huge profits to be made by companies who carry out fracking.

That would be bad. I don't drink beer personally, but it would be awful for the beer to be ruined.
