5. WI supplies sand for fracking

Many areas of WI are having our once beautiful landscapes DESTROYED by sand mining for use in fracking.
Land values in theses areas drop
Quality of life and tourism trade drop
Fine particulates in the air multiply astronomically
Water tables are threatened
Water quality has already been damaged
Commitments to the land "owned" by Native People are tossed aside

Koch and mining money control the WI legislature and our Governor and it's about to get worse in a hurry.
Righties used to care about LOCAL CONTROL, but not as much as lining their own pockets and affirming their power over those with more to lose and less resources to bring to the battle.

See this media release by the true states"man", State Senator Kathleen Vinehout. (Her full article will be up later today.)

If you can't stop fracking from the top, stop it from the bottom. Cut off sand supplies used in the process!
