James Taylor’s anti-fracking ad

North Carolina’s natural environment has been inundated with a lot of poison in recent days — so much, in fact, that a lot of folks may have forgotten the fact that state leaders are pushing hard to inject a lot more poison into the ground and water in the coming years. Happily, one of the state’s most celebrated native sons is speaking out against it in an ad on behalf of the good folks at the Natural Resources Defense Council.  Click below to watch it.

    I had no clue science-deniers were experts on anything, except “the truth”. Yum, yum, gimme some more of that mercury and arsenic in my drinking water, the GOP says it’s good for you.

    Thank you, JT! It doesn’t take a ‘degree’ in anything to know that pumping 25+ chemicals into the ground in order to extract gas is HARMFUL! You just have to be willing & able to READ!
