MARK RUFFALO on THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW on FRACKING



"If there are no problems with fracking,
then why are there
so many problems with fracking?"

Rachel's interview with Mark Ruffalo


Mark: "The Delaware River Basin Commision, which has been charged with keeping the delaware river watershed safe, is on the fast track to begin drilling asap. They want to put 30 thousand wells in there."
Rachel: "You hollering about that may stop them from doing that, I'm getting the sense."
Mark: "AHHH - don't make me mad - you wouldn't like me when I'm mad."

Mark, please get mad.
Rachel, please get mad
Everyone, please get mad.
Then get busy

Let's all let Rachel know
we need more fracking coverage

  1. Thanks for posting that.
    Ruffalo is among the few entertainers who seem to give a shit about a most critical environmental disaster in the making.

    Too many prominent names who could lend their influence to the fight are not involved... but maybe it will acquire social panache for them to join the fray . . .?
    I hope Mark can persuade some of the more gifted creative folks that it's in their best interest to oppose Marcellus drilling.

    Kudos to him.

  2. Ralph Nader in "The Good Fight"(2004) says,

    "The ravaging of the range and the stunning destruction of whole forested mountains are deep violations of freedom, perhaps the central value of a conservative American tradition in the broadest sense.
    While the word 'freedom' has been cheapened by its extended overuse in political platitudes, especially by politicians indentured to big business, it should be used more often and have greater impact when it retains a meaning grounded in truth.
    Trashing the environment for short-term profit amounts to a radical assault on freedom perpetrated by corporations who have bought our state and federal politicians.

    Methane drilling and mountain-top removal mining are just two examples of largely unseen, cumulative environmental violence that affects the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the complex web of life to which we are permanently tied."

  3. RC - Thank you for this quote: "Methane drilling and mountain-top removal mining are just two examples of largely unseen, cumulative environmental violence that affects the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the complex web of life to which we are permanently tied."

    John - meaty post with a call to action at the end. I love it.
