We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
This 18.5 minute documentary is by "Gasland's" Josh Fox and is well worth the time you'll devote to it. The time to stop fracking is now, not when our country is full of "orphan wells", abandoned and leaking dangerous liquids into our ground water. Keep and eye out also for "Promised Land," a new film with Matt Damon and Frances McDormand about a pair of agents for a giant gas company who undertake to buy up all the land leases in a depressed county. It will be in general circulation starting January 4.
