FRACKING HOSED IN PA


“People of Pennsylvania have seen this before 
from coal, from steel. 
This state is used to getting hosed. 
The people have to say, 
‘We’re not going to be your playground.’”

Cuomo and Corbett Ignore 
Health Concerns From Gas Fracking
"In the face of official calls for “future studies” of how high-volume hydro fracking might affect human health, states like Pennsylvania and New York have avoided these issues.
"In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Corbett and the Republican political establishment have eagerly embraced fracking, touting its economic benefits and downplaying its possible health consequences. Corbett’s 52-member advisory panel on Marcellus Shale drilling has no members with health expertise, according to a recent analysis by professors at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Public Health. (Neither do advisory panels on gas drilling for the state of Maryland and for the U.S. Secretary of Energy.)
"New York State, which is poised to allow high-volume hydro fracking of shale formations as soon as it completes its final rules, has rejected repeated calls for a thorough study of the health implications of fracking."

Natural Gas Drilling Began...
"...neighbors noticed that their well water began to smell. Then came the headaches, skin lesions, and diarrhea, in household after household. A two-year-old dog fell over dead."
“We’re talking about little children that have nosebleeds, cats that fall off windowsills,”
"Some experts are concerned that the chemical make-up of the witches brew used to force gas from rock is at the heart of these health problems."
"...future studies should explore “all the ways people can be exposed, such as through air, water, soil, plants and animals.”
"Typically, the subject animals suffered death or reproductive problems after drinking water from contaminated wells, ponds or streams. Humans suffered from burning of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches and dizziness, rashes, vomiting and diarrhea. In one case, a boy missed a year in school due to an illness that was attributed to poisoning from arsenic, a common ingredient in frackingflowback."
"...drillers have been known to compensate owners for animal deaths or illnesses in exchange for their legally binding silence."
"...seen patients complaining of nosebleeds, rashes, headaches and fatigue, among other symptoms."
"...many of the wealthier, more educated local residents who have health problems are suing gas companies. Generally, the poor who are sick – many of whom live within 1,000 feet of a compressor station or an open frack pond – are fending for themselves because state and local health officials seem overwhelmed."

This is how an angel dies...

Maybe I should cry for help...
Maybe I should SAIL

Words are failing us...failing me...
I am way beyond beside myself...
This is all... way beyond everything
watching...waiting...
out in the cold

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
LITTLE CHILDREN...
WAKE UP
