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.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
