National Stop the Frack Attack network to host People’s Forum in Washington, DC
WASHINGTON, DC – As the Department of Interior takes public comment on its industry-influenced fracking proposal and the U.S. Senate holds a series of hearings on the natural gas industry, people from across the country who are directly affected by irresponsible fracking and drilling will have an opportunity to share their stories as part of the Stop the Frack Attack People’s Forum, organized by Earthjustice, Earthworks and Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy.

Stop the Frack Attack is a national network of people, communities and organizations fighting against dirty and unsafe fracking.
People impacted by fracking and drilling will travel to Washington, DC to share their stories with policymakers and members of the media
Residents from around the country impacted by the fracking-enabled oil and gas drilling rush and associated industrial activities. (Full list of participants and bios available upon request)

I recently watched a documentary on PIXAIR. I always wondered if it was a coincidence that both Steve Jobs and Randy Pausch both died of pancreatic cancer and both worked at PIXAIR. Come to find out, in the documentary, the first PIXAIR building was located right next to a gas refinery and that even Steve Jobs is quoted as saying that the building was frequently filled with smoke from the refinery and that they evacuated often.
That’s interesting. I wonder how the other people who worked there are doing.
