Earth Day Demonstrations Against Fracking

Posted by: hillarya on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 - 08:35 AM
PA Green Party News 
Friday April 22 marks the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. The seventies brought promise with the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency, the passage of the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act and the Endangered Species Act. That promise fades with the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the damaged nuclear complex in Japan and the threat to Pennsylvania’s water, land and air from drilling for natural gas.

The Green Party of Pennsylvania calls upon Governor Corbett to fulfill his oath of office and the DEP to follow it’s mission and protect our environment. “Natural gas drilling will consume the equivalent of Harvey’s Lake, the largest natural lake in Pennsylvania, in less than 2 years time.” states Green Party activist Jay Sweeney. “The dumping of 'treated' wastewater into our rivers and streams is a public health threat as noted by Dr. Conrad Volz in his testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works last week.”

Green Party lauds Pittsburgh City Council Decision
Council votes to ban fracking in city limits

Last week, Pittsburgh City Council voted to ban hydrofracturing, or “fracking” within city limits. Fracking is a controversial method of natural gas extraction from the Marcellus Shale formation that uses large volumes of water and severely pollutes it in the process. There have been recent incidents of water contamination related to gas extraction in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and sewage treatment for the Monongahela River has been compromised by the dumping of fracking fluid leading to foul smelling and tasting water downstream in Pittsburgh.

Green Party offers viable alternatives in tomorrow’s election

As the exchange of missives between the two large corporate-dominated parties intensifies while the campaign season for the November 2010 general election winds down, the Green Party of Pennsylvania continues to offer a viable alternative that puts people before profits, and forwards a prospect of real change instead of the tiresome rhetoric and empty promises of the status quo.
