This week, Rock and Spectre are joined by Tabitha, a subject matter expert on the environmental crisis known as fracking, to learn about what fracking is, how it could affect us all, and what we, as everyday citizens, can do to prevent it.
Tune in to learn how we can help keep our world a cleaner and safer place!
About this week's guest:
Tabitha Tripp, a life long Illinois resident, has been a tenacious volunteer and environmental advocate for the last four years. She became engaged in the fracking issue after learning about risks to water supplies and the devastation the industry causes to rural communities.
She is a board member with the grassroots fracking organization SAFE, Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing our Environment. She is the founder of Shawnee Sentinels, a group formed with for the distinct need of training citizens non violent direct action and civil disobedience to protect the communities near and around the Shawnee National Forest from extraction issues. Most recently she was elected as Co-chair of Heartwood Forest Council, a 17 state organization that protects the Eastern Hardwood forest.
For fun, she is painter, poet, mom, and loves to cook. She lives in unincorporated Union County, IL with her two children and partner on a fourth generation family farm, where their only source of water is a deep well.
The film follows a proposed uranium mill in southwestern Colorado—the first to be built in the U.S. in 30 years—and the emotional debate pitting a population desperate for jobs and financial stability against an environmental group based in nearby a resort town. Without judgement, both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching de- tail as the film follows conflicting opinions and visions for the future.
What do you do when your community is dying from lack of funds...is it worth dying from a cancer-causing uranium mill? What is the cost of life in these United States?

From the film:
"I want them to understand that there's people here."
"yeah, but I don't think they care about us people. I mean there's no compromise--they don't care about us!"
"Nuclear Power was supposed to be our future. Al lot of this town is here because of Union Carbide and then when they left we're still here! They're long gone now "
"If you're only hearing the piece about jobs, you're not protecting the community. I dare you do better"
"The people complaining the most are driving to the protest in their Mercedes. You can only kick a dog so many times and pretty soon he's going to turn around and bite you."
"I have pulmonary fibrosis"
"I lost a father and two brothers from lung cancer. They all worked in the mines. My dad and my younger brother both died at the age of 48, but the way I feel it was...their time to go."

For the interview with Dr. Ronald Leo Sprinkle (born August 31, 1930) is an American psychologist. He studied at the University of Colorado and earned his Ph.D. at the University of Missouri
During his time as a professor at the University of Wyoming he was perhaps the first academic figure to investigate tales of supposed alien abduction; his involvement in this field began in the 1960s. in Kannenberg, 1992
Sprinkle became convinced of the phenomenon's actuality, and was perhaps the first to suggest a link between abductions and so-called cattle mutilations. In 1980 he founded the Rocky Mountain Conference on UFO Investigation. Eventually Sprinkle came to believe that he had been abducted by aliens in his youth; he was forced from his job at the University of Wyoming in 1989
There's an old negative saying "If you want to hide something from black folks, then put it in a book!" It implies, for the most part, that black folks don't read, when in fact we are the original architect of language and reading, which is why we must fight to dispel these negative myths from our way of thinking & living! Learn about some great books that are for both adults and young folks to build, and/or restore pride into our home, within our children, and our family's immediate environmen
