I have a number of topics percolating, but I want to share this video that found its way to my mailbox today. It’s an interview with John Fenton of Pavilion, Wyoming about his experiences with the oil and gas industry and how they have changed his life, first for worse and then, in a transformational sense, for the better.
But we can’t do justice to John’s story the way he can. The video is an eighteen minute description of the events that changed his life. I can’t recommend it enough to those who live in communities where oil and gas drilling is being considered. It is sobering and hopeful, and perhaps it will spur you to action.
The video is part of a series by Heidi Hutner called Coffee with Hx2. Hutner is the director of the Sustainability Studies Program and Associate Dean in the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University in New York.
