You really have to check out the information on Radiation Exposure in this article.
With the worry in the scientific and medical communities regarding the US’s potential for exposure to radioactive isotopes from Japan, it seems ever more important to stop the rape of our continent by the oil/gas companies…especially in and around Michigan which is home to one fifth (1/5) of the worlds fresh water supply.
In a “worst case scenario” Michigan’s fresh water could mean the difference between extinction and survival. This huge fresh water supply should be considered a national treasure and be protected at all costs.
Fracking uses 6-8 million gallons of water per day…can we really afford to poison that much water? We may need it to drink and grow food in the very near future. Currently, gas prices are very low, due to the glut on the market from all the gas made available from the frack sites currently operating. There’s absolutely NO NEED to continue to mine natural gas in America right now.
Call your representatives, senators and governor(s) and tell them Fracking is not what America needs right now. Heck, call the President too while you’re at it.
