This is way wrong.
Two months ago I happened upon a pbs show featuring Josh Fox and his movie Gasland. My life changed. At first I was concerned with the Delaware River becoming polluted. Three generations of my family live in Lower Bucks County - the fourth has just arrived. This seemed a serious threat to us all. Since that day I have relentlessly pursued all available information on gas drilling and its potential to harm our environment and our health.
I am convinced that my - OUR - state is doomed if the gas drilling is not stopped - NOW.
I am an 8th generation Pennsylvanian with an ancestor who fought as a lieutenant in Trenton and Princeton. For over 250 years the family has lived throughout the state and enjoyed everything it has had to offer - loyal citizens secure in the belief that we are protected by our elected officials.
We have all been betrayed - sold out - by our officials at every level of government. Officials who have sworn an oath to uphold the constitution and have consistently broken that vow. The evidence is easily available, abundant and overwhelming - from township supervisors up to Gov Rendell - the biggest betrayer of all.
My efforts to inform others of this situation are usually met with disinterest and indifference. I find this both puzzling and shocking - some kind of denial?
I am going to devote as much time as possible to spread awareness of this coming disaster. In reaching out across the state and country I have found a growing number of very devoted, very alarmed, very angry and very good people who have been working long and hard to end this travesty. I have links to several of those on the right - please visit and learn and follow their links to other important sites. I have also included links to some videos and tv shows of interest.
I have become sick at heart and furious. It seems everything I find is profoundly troubling. I hope this blog helps us. I encourage comments -
