After the dirty bastards collapse the economy there will be no customers for their dirty fossil fuels. We The People will have to wake up and reinvent the concept of money and our economy. Instead of "time is money," we will operate on the concept of "time is life." We can’t and should not try to grow our way out of this crisis. We will be investing in clean water technologies rather than fracking at this point.

If common sense has any place in this country, then the people need to 'be informed' by the news...the real news, like Thom Hartman, seems to be the only place I can get the truth about what's going on, the real story! and not some fake entertainment news.

Many European and other countries around the globe are way ahead of the US on environmental issues. The US with an oil backed political agenda has proven again and again that human life is not a priority. Best example are the oil wars! They're willing to send people off in droves to die for oil in North Africa and middle east. I sincerely doubt they give a hoot about a few communities being poisoned by fracking. Fracking will likely continue until there's much tougher, can't-be-bought representation for the people in our government.

kudos for whom ever wrote the "No" response stem. It is right on the money.

Viotes are pretty close. I contend that much of our drinking water is already contaminated and it's done no good to fight back against these people. Seems that both Democrats and Republican politicians are for this fracking no matter how much the people protest. Unfortunately, there is not much news on our mainstream media so most people aren't even aware of it. I've brought it to the attention of people who were blissfully unaware that it was happening right around them and no one knows. We have to change how politics is funded and how politicians are voted in, after we get corporate money and influence out of our political system, and that's going to take longer then we may have at the current rate of corruption.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
