Fracking Sucks! Waylon Lewis talks with Josh Fox of Gasland fame.

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis: One Take: In the Moment with Josh Fox.

Update: New evidence that the fluid injected into empty fracking wells has caused earthquakes in the US, including a 5.6 magnitude earthquake in Oklahoma that destroyed 14 homes. (nature.com)

Update: Headline today: Governor Hickenlooper and “Gas Industry Successfully Overturns Colorado Fracking Ban“… with threat of lawsuits.

Update: Fracking accident leaks benzene into Colorado stream. (grist.org)

Fracking is not a hippie liberal environmentalist issue. See GASLAND and you’ll see it’s hitting conservatives and hunters and business owners and real estate values and children…all of us. Hard.

Fracking is everywhere. Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, hide yo health, hide yo real estate value…it’s bad, bad, bad stuff. It causes little earthquakes and dirties millions of gallons of drinkable water. All for 50 cent savings on gas—when instead we could be investing in solar and wind and going all clean, green and domestic.

Yesterday, fracking was approved in Waylon’s hometown of Boulder.

Today, he sits on his front stoop and asks expert Josh Fox, a Yankees fan, the big-time director of Gasland, how to win this ballgame against the Big Oil n’Gas Lobbyists who are running ruffshod over the wishes of conservative and liberal citizens alike.

Fracking sucks.

PS: And if you don’t think you care about fracking after watching the above…

“German brewers concerned fracking could contaminate water supplies, violate beer purity law of 1516.” That’s a headline from today!

So: non-violent, civil disobedience…this is our solution. And showing up! Not enough to facebook it. Right Waylon Lewis?

Slacktivism is good start…sharing and making noise can make a difference, online, we’ve seen that via Reddit, Occupy, in Iran…but it’s not enough.

    So sucky – I wrote to them before the hearing to no avail….and even though they approved it, we still have a chance – I believe we can stop this BS. Let's band together.

    Josh Fox is no expert of any kind

      Thank you for reminding people of this. Josh Fox is the next generation equivalent of Michael Moore–great at making people angry, making bold, sweeping statements, and making money off of the fear of people who don’t bother to educate themselves further.

    • meatpietatters says:

      You must love fracking.

    Say it ain't so!–not fracking in Boulder!?* The idea of community solar fields sounds brilliant. Nova Scotia, Canada is fighting fracking and what it does to our many waterways. New Brunswick protested a bit but is capitulating. Making millions of gallons of water toxic in order to release a bit more fossil fuel is fossilized thinking! Renewable energy like solar and wind are the way to go!
