DON'T FRACK NC

Even if you just visit the NC coast or Mts and don't live here you should call the NC Governor and express your concerns about this very horrible environmental RAPE!!! I called last week, a real person answers the phone and they document your call. PLEASE call and STOP this fracking!!!!!!!!!


Mark your calendars for this coming Thursday, June 28, 7 pm at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro. The magnificently brilliant Elaine Chiosso of the Haw River Assembly joins Dispersed for a screening of our 20 minute clip, "Message from the Marcellus." 

While we focus on the human element of the fracking issue, Elaine will present scientific studies to help you understand how the hydro-fracturing process works and how it could impact NC given our very specific shale conditions. Please spread the word and please attend if you can. 

Also, you may have heard that Senate Bill 820 passed in both the Senate and the House. We are pressing Governor Perdue hard for a veto. Please contact her and voice your concerns at 

(919) 733-2391

thank you for sharing important information and phone numbers. i am often naive about how things will turn out... like with amendment one. everyone i know was against it and went out and voted (including me), yet it passed. i was totally disappointed. i can't believe that anyone would think fracking is good idea but then again...
i am too optimistic about the intelligence of the rest of our population.

While I agree with your sentiment and applaud your efforts, I'd like to suggest that you reconsider your use of the word "rape" to describe something that is not at all like forced sexual assault. Not only is it inaccurate, it may also be highly triggering for some of your readers.

I'm off to donate to RAINN -- I do that every time I see someone use "rape" in a context that doesn't actually describe rape. I encourage you to do the same.

Well, you are technically correct so here are some
synonyms:
ravishment - violation
ravish - violate - outrage - force

Our state government is greedy and they are going to ravish this land, and the Earth is sure gonna feel like it's being raped when the fracking starts here!!

I cannot for the life of me understand why someone would spend time creating this Fracking technology and then the time and money to implement it rather than focusing on green, not Earth destroying technology. It's just stupid.

This topic makes my stomach turn...I find it hard to believe fracking is even an option anywhere. NY is in the heat of the debate and many rural farmers are poised to cave into the $$ temptation...it's so sad
:(
