An Open Letter to Lisa Jackson from Josh Fox, Please Intervene in Dimock!

An Open Letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to Intervene in Dimock, because the State of Pennsylvania has Failed. By Josh Fox Dear Administrator Jackson- I am writing to you on behalf of all Pennsylvanians, appealing for your help in a matter of dire urgency. Earlier this year, you gave me your word that you would apply federal EPA’s might and enforcement capabilities when State governments were failing to protect citizens.  I am writing to you to appeal for EPA’s immediate intervention on behalf of families in Dimock, Pennsylvnaia who have been contaminated by Cabot Oil and Gas fracking activities.  We urgently…

Today is November 21st. We Can’t Go Home Again.

Dear Friends- Today is November 21st.  The day that I was dreading for so many months.  It’s here and I have no fear. Why?  Because so many of you called, signed up, emailed, and threatened to protest that you averted the coming crisis before it happened.

Of course, we are far from safe from fracking…

Update on Trenton Rally Nov 21. Yes this is a big win, but it is still a drop in the bucket.

VICTORY!!!!!! DRBC VOTE CANCELLED!

DRBC VOTE CANCELLED!  YOU DID IT.  YOU WON. All of your calls.  All of your emails.  Your pledges to swarm the DRBC in Trenton on November 21st. All of your pressure and all of your strength. You stopped fracking in the Delaware River Basin for now.  You won this round.  It is not a complete victory but it is a huge victory.  You brought us back from the brink of total devastation. What cancellation means: The DRBC doesn’t hold a meeting to vote down their regulations.  I’ve only ever seen them vote to approve things. Which means they cancel the meeting if they no longer have 3 out…
