Water is our most Precious Resource

My statement to the DRBC last night

I'm Meg Montgomery, a Liberty resident.

To anyone who cares at all for facts, there is a mountain of proof and testimony that illustrates beyond a shadow of a doubt how insanely dangerous hydrofracking is, to our water, our environment, and to our very way of life.

Hydrofracking is a Weapon of Mass Destruction. It's just one WMD in a much larger war on the democratic process and the people of this great country.

The economic purpose of hydrofracking is to funnel trillions of dollars into the hands of the plutocrats, who don't pay taxes. It's political purpose is to destroy the health and livelihoods of those within its range, rendering them powerless, or dead. This is the express purpose of the Halliburton Loophole.

In a time when we have the technology to quickly and safely transition to a Renewable economy, instead we're battered by the blind greed of the 2% who want to squeeze every last drop of fossil fuel out of the ground, every last penny out of OUR pockets, and to destroy our Constitutional Liberties.

If you, the members of the DRBC, pave the way for hydrofracking in the Delaware River Basin, which supplies drinking water to almost 20 million people in NY, NJ and PA, you will be willing accomplices to a terrorist attack the likes of which this country has never seen.
