Thom Hartmann Show: Fracking (Josh Fox, guest)
Fracking and all that goes with it is an assault on democracy. It is corporations invading small towns, public forests, cities, anywhere they want, and doing whatever they want to the environment, air, water, soil, and public health. Are we going to let it continue, or are we going to demand democracy? Do we have the right to prevent the destruction of our communities? Yes, we do!
Josh Fox appears at the beginning of the hour, so you don't have to watch the entire show.
One thing Josh said which impressed me: In Pennsylvania, there are currently 6,000 gas wells. The projection is that eventually there will be 180,000 wells in PA.
So this is only the beginning.
