Noted. These grassroots groups are determined to have success in their fight against fracking, and are using all available tools. I'm so glad to know this. Other groups can use this as a blueprint.

They need our support in this worthwhile and urgent fight.
Not only is fracking a potential environmental disaster, it has every chance that it will over time make all ground water unusable and a health hazard but it is wasting millions of gallons of our most precious water resources and all just to make a few very rich, greedy individuals a lot richer.

For the life of me, I cannot understand this mayhem. Why $$$ in the world $$$ is not every human $$$ on this beloved planet $$$ focusing time, energy and funds on sustainable energy and living. We all have to fight this absurdity.

The Chicago fools are trying to bring fracking to the Shawnee NF area in Southern IL. The leases have been bought. Equipment is in place. It only needs the governor's signature. The legislation is supposed to contain the most intense safety & inspection requirements. Since fracking is a bad idea that can only get worse, no severe safety inspections will work. The Wabash & New Madrid Faults & all the old coal tunnels will ensure that.
