We took the time to go to one of the only two public meetings about the recent DENR report on fracking for NC. It was held at East Chapel Hill High School. Thankfully, people opposed to fracking drastically outnumbered the supporters. The level of intelligence was through the roof when it came to speakers. Soil experts, doctors, even a former geologist who studied nuclear waste impacts: they all say DON'T DO IT.
But it was the folks who traveled here from fracking states that made the biggest statement about how bad things get...they're living a nightmare and they came to let us know about it. Really good turnout. Let's hope it helps when the state is deciding whether or not to lift the ban on fracking.
