Water is our most Precious Resource

The Corporate Attack on Water

Those of us involved in this fight on hydrofracking are acutely aware of the perils of this unregulated industry that serves only to build piles and piles of cash for a very few while destroying the quality of life for many.

Well, the quality of life is about to be utterly destroyed, not by hydrofracking per se, but by the theft of New York's pristine water supply by the robber barons. Right now, in the NY Senate, there is a bill being fast-tracked called the Water Withdrawl Bill, which literally GIVES our water to the hydrofrackers and water bottling companies. No tax, no lease, no cut, no residuals - when this state is in such dire circumstances, we are GIVING AWAY OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE.

If you're inspired to do something about it, watch the video I made  on YouTube which will guide you to find your NY state senator. Call, email, fax, send notes.... do whatever you can to make your voice heard that this is unacceptable.

Of course, this has been going on around the world for years, and maybe I'm naive to think that it wouldn't happen in New York. But we are now on the brink of one of the most dangerous changes in history; when only the people who can afford it will have access to clean fresh water in what is supposed to be the most advanced civilization in the history of the world.
