Yoko Ono and Artists Against Fracking: Find Out What Fracking Has Done to Pennsylvania

From The Huffington Post:

In the new video below, unveiled by Artists Against Fracking and shot by Gasland director Josh Fox, Yoko Ono lays out how she sees the increasingly heated battle.

“On one side is the gas companies — big, big companies — on the other side there is people,” says Ono. “But people are eventually going to win, because people are eventually going to keep on increasing their knowledge, whereas the gas company has to keep on increasing their lies. And that’s the big difference.”

She includes a familiar request for Cuomo: “Please meet us.”

Ono, fellow artists, and journalists (myself included) got a first-hand look last month at what may be at stake with Cuomo’s looming decision. The video chronicles our bus tour of northeastern Pennsylvania, a region that’s already accrued years of experience with natural gas operations.

Of course, New York is not the only state contemplating whether or not to tap into its large volumes of shale gas — nor is the U.S. the only country on the verge of such a monumental choice. “It would be so incredible if we can do something in the state of New York,” says Ono in the video. “That might just create a precedent.”

People in favor of expanding natural gas production have shared with me their frustrations with anti-fracking activists, who they say are using “radical scare tactics” to thwart what could be a welcome boon for the country, as well as for struggling families and small businesses.
