ShaleShock, a free-flowing union of independent gas drilling activists, is establishing itself as a formidable social change creating force in the early days of Peak Oil. The Marcellus Shale gas drilling controversy is really starting to heat up in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. We’re talking door to door environmental health education campaigns, ShaleShock 101 for those new to the gas drilling problem, and lobbying/educating local, state and national legislative representatives.
Andrew Beyers, one of ShaleShocks leading actors, shares his great knowledge of how to create an alternative to corporate activities that degrade the environment. Shale gas drilling is a heavily polluting business: large quantities of diesel exhaust fouling the air from trucks, drilling rigs and generators, toxic fracturing fluid that is injected into the Earth to force the natural gas out of the shale, toxic waste (used fracturing fluid) dumped by the gas drillers in artificial ponds, offgassing of cancer causing pollutants from the ponds, and flaring of gas wells. Education, advocacy and JOY come together beautifully for the protection of the Earth Mother where shale gas deposits lie deep below the communities, farms, orchards, vineyards and forests of Central New York State. The “winds of change” are starting to blow a little bit stronger, just gradually increasing in force in harmony with the overheated planet’s strengthening winds. Something very special is beginning to take place. The people have grown in their environmental consciousness over the past several decades. Now we are seeing the beautiful results of that growth. The people are beginning to build a groundswell of environmental protection activity that is certainly looking good with regards to movements and revolutions on the horizon.
Stop Shale Gas. Stop Tar Sands. I believe that these parallel grassroots environmental protection campaigns will succeed beyond our wildest dreams. “Among Good Spirits and all of us environmental protection activists everything is alright.”
