Opinion Letters Fracking is an environmental nightmare

The North Carolina Senate voted last week in a party line vote to lift the state’s moratorium on fracking. As usual, Sen. Jim Davis followed the herd.

The bill to lift the ban will soon go to the House where it will pass, again along party lines. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis has already stated he loved fracking and his Republican chums agree.

Fracking is an environmental nightmare. One has only to visit sites in other states where fracking has been in effect.

Before we in North Carolina sell our birthright for purportedly “cheap” gas we should examine the real cost of fracking.

Go to any or all of the following websites: www.motherjones.com; www.dangersoffracking.com; www.foodandwaterwatch.org; www.propublica.org.
