At the Frack Attack rally, I caught Josh Fox talking on the sidelines. I am always in awe of his capacity to communicate. He is articulate, accessible, compelling, funny, genuine and spot on. The anti-fracking movement is so fortunate to have him as an international spokesperson, though his film Gasland is clearly one of the main reasons the movement exists.
In this clip, he explains how our country is literally getting eaten up by our addiction to fossil fuels. I’ve known this for a while now, but as he was explaining it, it hit me differently, perhaps because I was at the rally in the front of the Capitol with people from all over this country that have been personally affected by fracking in horrendous ways. Whatever the reason, I could literally see our country getting eaten up, and it fueled my fire to continue fighting to extinguish the madness.
Clean energy is our only chance for a viable future. Our only chance.
