Josh Fox, Director of GASLAND, Writes Open Letter to DRBC on Facebook

This is the tap water source for 15 million people.

Today was the final day that the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) accepted public comment from PA residents concerned with water contamination of the Delaware River--our drinking water source--from fracking for natural gas.

Josh Fox, the director of GASLAND, submitted written comment to the DRBC today and posted it on Facebook for all to read:

While the window to submit written public comment to the DRBC for the record has closed, it is never too late to call our elected officials to voice your concerns over fracking. You can use the links on the right side bar of the home page to contact elected officials and let them know that you don't want benzene in your water any time!

Josh's letter to the DRBC is amazingly comprehensive...a bit of a miracle or an embarrassment, depending on how you look at it, in that a member of the public can actually have this much detailed knowledge of a process that the state and it's regulatory bodies seem to have washed their hands of. I have met and talked to Josh twice and know him to be a sincere committed person who is trying to prevent his way of life from being destroyed.

He has some advantage in his position of filmmaker for getting the message out there but he can't do this without us. We need to leverage his efforts and reinforce them a million fold to be successful in stopping this political/industrial fiasco and community tragedy. Do whatever you can wherever you can to help and do not give in or give up. Your voices are the true voices of democracy; not some disrespected piece of paper called a corporate charter, state constitution or regulatory document.
