I have said that I am not exaggerating when I say that that hydrofracking shale to extract gas has destroyed the land, air and water wherever it has been done. There are no exceptions It also destroys the character, peace and beauty of the place, as well as in many cases the fabric of community, fracturing long time friendships. Fundamentally it lays waste to a variety of freedoms, as you will hear demonstrated by example on the program this week. Our featured presentation is the stories of three people from Susquehanna County Pennsylvania whose beautiful countryside is being reduced to poison and poison and profit by gas drillers. Each of the people’s stories brings out a different aspect. They were interviewed by a several people from the shale shock, coalition a citizen’s anti-fracking group based in the Ithaca area, who made the trip to Pennsylvania at the end of October. The witnesses spoke under condition of anonymity, so they will be introduced by first name only. Why they wished this will become obvious as you hear their stories.
