This has to be re-posted in the hope that it reaches more of us. For only our knowledge and sharing of it and standing together ‘not’ to stand for things that we can then prevent will change our future, before it changes anyway.
“As I contemplate the impacts that Fracking is having across the globe, the success and the losses – I realize the only way to stop this destructive act of extracting resources from our precious Earth is by building and uniting a stronger movement around the globe. The people who know what is happening must unite, and must educate and inspire others to join our movement by showing them what truly is at stake. Only when we get the masses out on the front lines will we have a chance to conquer this beast that threatens the very fabric of our future and those to follow. When I was in Pennsylvania and saw some of what has happened to their state, the rivers that have been poisoned the land that has been destroyed and the fight that continues on, I felt deeply saddened by the ignorance of the human race. Their fight has been strong in Pennsylvania, with some success, but with more destruction as the industry continues to drill on. We are drilling our way to a place of no return as our planet continues to warm and climate extremes become more and more common. Fracking is not a safe bridge away from fossil fuels! Robert F. Kennedy just came out and said again that natural gas is a catastrophe! When will the corporations promoting this harmful extraction wake up and realize that the future of our children is more important then their profits?” ~Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 13 year old indigenous environmental activist from Boulder, Colorado..
