Fracking Homework

If you’re planning to attend the Carbon County Resource Council meeting in Red Lodge on December 4 or if you just want to do some quick homework about the community impacts of hydraulic fracturing (fracking), I recommend that you download the fracking informational toolkit published by the Union of Concerned Scientists. It’s called Science, Democracy and Fracking: A Guide for Community Activists and Policy Makers Facing Decisions Over Hydraulic Fracturing. It’s short (18 pages), highly informational, and doesn’t advocate anything except making the best decisions for your community.

An informed community can be dangerous. It is important to deal in facts, and taking the time to read this in advance of the meeting will be useful to everyone.

The Moses family has lived on the Stillwater River since 1974, when George and Lucile Moses retired and moved to the Beehive from the Twin Cities. They’re gone now, but their four daughters (pictured at left, on the Beehive) and their families continue to spend time there, and have grown to love the area. This blog started as an email chain to keep the family informed about the threat of increased fracking activity in the area, but the desire to inform and get involved led to the creation of this blog.

    This is a terrific resource — spend the time to get acquainted with it. Among other things, can save considerable time and energy and make any efforts our groups may undertake more effective.
