A reminder about a great learning opportunity available today at Noon. Three experts will be describing the state of the science on the health implications of fracking.The event is offered by the Collaborative on Health and the Environment (CHE), a nonpartisan organization with a mission of strengthening the science dialogue on environmental factors impacting human health.
It’s a one-hour conference call, with some time for Q&A at the end. You can register by clicking here:
This event should be outstanding whether you’ve been studying the health impacts of drilling for a long time or if you’re a novice just starting to find out about drilling and health. You can find out more about the event and the presenters here.
CHE has posted the presentations online. If you’re attending you may want to review the slides beforehand, or if you can’t attend you may want to have a look anyway. Download presentations by clicking on the graphics below:

Voting MATTERS, and thank goodness Wheat prevailed so citizens can have the leverage they need to protect their rights, considering how the legislature is still GOP controlled, and you can be sure it will be a VERY TOUGH fight to get reform of the Board of Oil and Gas, as they and the Wilks/Koch Brothers considering the Montana legislture ‘their’ wholly owned subsidiaries…!
Here’s your Carbon County results and Nobody ran against Tucker, so that’s what happens and ya’ll better hope he listens and protects property, water and surface rights of all citizens, and not
be a tool of ECA and others. Thank goodness Justice Wheat is re-elected and provides the judicial body to help citizens.
