We Fight Back (Fracking Causes Quakes)
Imagine developers want to frack gas, near a nuclear power plant, and many geological faults less than 20 miles from where you live. Imagine your town gets water from a river that flows through the formation that would be fracked. Imagine that 100 years ago the largest industrial accident in the state happened in a mine in that formation. Imagine your state legislature has just been overtaken by clueless Republicans seeing dollar signs from resource exploitation. That’s what’s happening where I live in central North Carolina. When my daughter in Pittsboro put me in touch with local activists who are fighting to stop this disaster from happening, I stopped blogging and got active locally.
