Fracking - An American Crisis

Kristal Alexander
So , they came to my Mountains and ripped all the trees out and ran all the wildlife out to place there loud ass drills all over the place. If your neighbor says go for it they have the right to drill your land....right of passage law. Everybody has to say no to the drilling or we're screwed. Say goodby to your trees and your peaceful yard.

Try having YOUR tap water do this!

A battle is brewing between local people and major energy companies looking to exploit possible sources of shale gas in the Karoo.

Shale gas is natural gas stored in rocks that are rich in organic material such as dark colored shale
And at the heart of the conflict will be the one thing that is really scarce in the Karoo – water.

Five companies… Read More

  • are still those people out there who still don't get it. I was told by a friend to stop my protests as companies like Shell, Bundu, Falcon and even Sasol exist so that I may gallavant in my car. Denial! Denial! Denial! Join the cause Stop Hydraulic Fracturing in the Karoo and sign the petition people. We don't want to end up like Pensyllvania.

I have to admit, I kept seeing the term FRACKING, and wondered what it meant, like most people,it went on my mental list. " I need to find out what all the fuss is" I told myself. It gets harder and harder to absorb just how quickly these things get developed and overpoweringly huge. Before you have had a chance to leisurely look it up and get a grip on whether it is something that is totally scary. Then I read who developed it...Halliburton!. No wonder it got so big so fast. It is getting to be a full-time job just watching those guys.
Of course, it didn't take long to read about special rights and 'Freebies'(no need to disclose chemicals used, etc) that their good buddy Dick Cheney had included in the last round of EPA legislation just for this process...before we had even heard of it. Here are some folks that have felt the pain. I think I've included all the links. See what you think...Jeff Darling

Fracking is getting too big and nobody who is paying the price now knew what they were getting into.
