NC residents speak against the inadequate #fracking regs – many ask for a BAN !

WRAL was LIVE covering North Carolina residents speaking out (on a work day) in opposition to fracking. They are upset with how their leaders are ‘frack fast tracking’ with some of the least protective regulations in the nation.

This is the first of four public hearings. Click here to see the Sierra list of other meetings.

Here is a video of a speaker too choked up to speak yet her message is frackingly clear!….

 

 


Next we have….. SING IT SISTA!….


Below is a pic (boo & hiss) of the two profracking lady speakers (of which one has mineral interests). Both were wearing t-shirts that said “Energy = Jobs”…she is right but in the wrong direction.

This gal wanted a show of hands of those who used fossil fuels to drive to the public hearing and eat or drink from plastic wares/water bottles.. HOW UNORIGINAL….she is such a “status quo debbie downer” when change is possible…she gives us an incentive to stop using unnecessary fossil fuels. And until we do…she’s got a good point…lets hit them where it hurt$…

  • subscribe to renewable energy choices for your home heating/cooling,
  • use induction cooking if you have gas,
  • buy an electric car or use public transportation…these are do-able goals to budget for.

…climate change ain’t waiting for it to be afforable or easy

HEY DEBBIE LADY…providing renewable energy choices creates jobs….you-dear-debbie-downer-lady-you!

Here are five quick videos of another gal with a great accent that grabbed everyones hearts….

This gal left with some time on the clock and ran back to say one more thang and it was “DO IT” !!!!! (ie vote the frackers out of office)….


This lady was the last speaker that wore the ‘Benzene’ lapel. Yes these were organized folks who wore other tags like COPD, Asthma etc….. where were all the organized Texas gals 8 years ago? …..crickets…we were the guinea pigs.

The meeting ended with people wanting to ask questions from the audience and was promptly cut off after answering one question confirming that the transcripts will be made.


Below is my tweet…something we can and should do during the next round of public hearings…thanks…

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
