The Grassroots Report: Help document damage from fracking during Hurricane Sandy
PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY:
IF YOU LIVE NEAR FRACK SITES: HELP DOCUMENT HARM FROM DRILLING DURING HURRICANE SANDY:
The last big storm the gas drillers said there was no harm - at least nothing anyone can prove. This time we can prove it.
#1. SAFETY FIRST
#2. IF YOU LIVE NEAR any drilling sites or infrastructure and witness PIT OVERFLOWS / other harm, take a picture & send to Delaware Riverkeeper Network - urgent action link set up just for this effort. They'll use the pics to document the harm, it will help future advocacy /litigation on this issue. Delaware Riverkeeper Network - http://www.delawareriverkeeper.org/act-now/urgent-...
#3. If you can, please get GPS coordinates of frack sites / other messes that you see. From Jenny L.: "a nearby family and their animals may be getting seriously poisoned. DEP doesn't notify gas well neighbors of violations involving spills, etc."
Mother Nature's doing what we haven't yet been able to do: shutting down fracking in the Marcellus, for at least a day or two:
