Natural Gas Drilling Threatens Safe Drinking Water

This is my first post on  To read it, follow this link.

I wanted to mention again, if you would like to learn more about natural gas drilling visit Propublica, a website that is dedicated to truth in journalism.  Also, don’t miss the documentary Gasland, winner of The Special Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, which will be premiering on HBO on June 21st.  A number of organizations are working to protect the safety of our drinking water, including Catskill Mountain Keeper, Damascus Citizens for Sustainability and NYH2O.  They have made great strides in reaching out to lawmakers and educating them about the inherent dangers of natural gas exploration.  Many of our politicians had no idea about the details and possible risk of contamination of drinking water sources prior to being educated by volunteers in these organizations.  So, their work is very important and they rely on your continued support to continue to fight to protect drinking water sources.  If you live in another part of the country and think this does not apply to you — think again.  The Colorado River, which provides drinking water for millions of people as well, is predicted to dry up by the end of the next two decades.  Water, which is abundant now, may not be so abundant in the future.  What happens in one of the most densely populated parts of the U.S. will set a precedent for the rest of the country.  It is absolutely important.
