About Trailer Talk’s Marcellus Shale Water Project

Fracking. Hydrofracturing. Natural Gas Drilling.

    Thank you Sabrina. The world needs more of you and your trustworthy Trailer Talk’s as you interview the real folks caught on the front lines on this fracking nighmare. I urge more people to tune in to get the real story behind this very serious problem and not the manufactured sound bites network news insists on spoon feeding us.

    At the beginning of this crisis in 2008, I never could’ve imagined how much progress could be made by community action and collective will. Trailer Talk’s an example of this kind of steady and persistent resistance at work–keep rockin’ it, Sabrina. We WILL NOT let hydrofracking poison our future in the Catskills!

    I really appreciate your dedication to this subject. I live in Texas and see the affects fracking in the Eagle Ford shale play is having on our communities. At this point my town, Victoria, has not been threatened with fracking. The hotels and motels are enjoying full occupancy with the workers as we are about 30 miles from major fracking sites. I hope you will have the chance to come down here and speak to the residents being affected. One local small town is being severely impacted due to roads being destroyed by the many trucks that are traveling to and from fracking sites. Many are small two lane roads in rural areas and the town is looking at millions being needed to build new roads. The town is scrambling to come up with the money. A couple of landowners facing fracking on their property have attempted lawsuits but with the massive amounts of money the companies have defending their interests it’s a real uphill battle. Just this week it was announced one landowner was being assisted by a large environmental group with donations from concerned citizens. Again, I hope you can make it down here to visit this area.
