Papantonio: The Fracking Industry's Dirty Secrets

The fracking industry is one of the most secretive and deceptive industries in the country. They've managed to operate with little to no oversight from the federal government, and they've kept their secret fracking formulas from being revealed to the public, even though the chemicals they're using are leaching into groundwater supplies and poisoning men, women, and children. Mike Papantonio talks about how the fracking industry is accomplishing all of this with Mike Ludwig, a reporter for TruthOut.org.

Our Health is being consumed by these voracious blood suckers in the fracking business. See "Gas Wars" by Josh Fox, and look for his sequel "II" out soon. This fracking is spreading from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific, and it is ruining drinking water in many areas, plus it may even be causing EARTHQUAKES, due to the high pressure injection of millions of gallons of water laced with more than 500 chemicals, most of whom are TOXIC. This is KooKooCrazy, no? Wake the frack up, America and learn about this quickly evolving crisis. This is as serious as CANCER.

Kasich is very very bad.

But I think Corbett may actually be worse, if possible.

To be honest it's not easy to find many allies among high-ranking elected officials.
