Andrew Byers of the Shaleshock Action Alliance spoke to a packed house last night at the Kingston Township Municipal Building. (Thank you Kingston Township).
Andrew worked with facts and extrapolated them to the scales of production which have been projected here. He used slides to show fully developed fields, sites in preparation, and waste ponds being dozed back into the earth. He spoke about the generators which spew out ozone creating hydrocarbons, pipelines, access roads, dragon tanks, diesel trucks, waste fluids, and radioactive mud. He spoke to the typical everyday spillage, topsoil degradation, and its cumulative effect on the water system. He spoke to mismanagement, the Cheney/Halliburton loophole, endocrine disruption, and the industrial sized scale of it all. He also covered community organizing, monitoring strategies, and local political activism. It was a rational and fact based portrayal of a world we are allowing to happen.
