Tony Ingraffea TONITE (Dec 16th) at LCCC at 7:00 PM
This poem is from a collection: “Gas, Fire, and Water from Marcellus Shale”, a collection of poems and drawings of John Bromberg’s sculptures by Richard Aston which has the aim of making people aware of the time involved in the life cycle of gas from Marcellus shale (100 million years), and acquire an appreciation for the water which is threatened by the process of drilling for and extracting the gas. What right do we have to use all this gas in one century? How will this process affect future generations? A thematic poem goes:
How long has it been since you felt the sun, turned toward it, put out a flower, fed a flighty thing after your nectar?
How did you bear the weight pressing on you, the millions of years, the rocks and the sea?
Was it me you were fixing to attend,
I who burn you,
use the energy that you stored so long, all of it for me?
For what purpose?
To go where?
John Bromberg is a prolific artist working in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and Richard Aston published most of the poems, primarily in the region.
in the woods at last
we walk atop the snow
The Kirby and WVIA have both refused to show Gasland despite the the fact they sit atop the Marcellus Shale and are charged with being community resources. And, in spite of the the many requests by their patrons to do so. Something is prejudicing them against an open mind.
If you want to watch films such as Gasland, and The Future of Food (in their entirety and absolutely free) go to www.thoughtmaybe.com.
Here is a fantastic Public Radio Station with diverse, intelligent programming: www.Wgdr.org
(if you have any suggestions of your own please forward)
My wife and I have listened to and supported WVIA radio for thirty years. We are not sure what to do. Bill Kelly seems unwilling to consider his manifest bias for gas drilling. He gets a privileged salary at the “non-commercial” station, why should he bite the hands that luxuriate him. Quite the contrary, he seems to kiss those hands with fervor . Witness the Northeast Business Journal series.
