We had to cancel last week's show due to some technical difficulties so we will be doing the show on the same topic this week. The show is about a subject that everyone who has a well, or is hooked up to a private or municipal water system shoud be aware of. It involves the search for underground deposits of natural gas by gas companies using a method called Hydraulic Fracking or just Fracking. FRACKING is the process by which gas companies pump "SLURRY" into the earth to open up cracks in the underground rocks/shale that allows them to harvest the gas. The gas companies are using dangerous and toxic chemicals in the process, and are actually polluting the water supply making it undrinkable for millions of Americans. My guest this week is Mr. Pat Carullo, Co-Founder of the Damascus (PA) Citizens for Sustainability and he will be here to talk about his first hand experiences living with the results of FRACKING in his local area of pennsylvania, which is near the New York State border. As always, listeners are encouraged to call in.
