Bonnie Reynolds and her news letter “The Flowback” was the beneficiary of a frack shill hit piece by Fred Dicker in the tabloid New York Post. Followed up by a “3 part” smear by another fracking shill. Putting Bonnie into the Fractavist Hall of Fame. Bonnie, using mainly her own funds, published a news letter that put forth factual information on the risks of fracking – and distributed it across Upstate. For this, she got libeled by some gas industry shills – the kind of lowlifes that are paid to do such things. The crux of their allegations was that one of the many photos used in the news letter was of J Henry Fair’s photo of the mountaintop leveling for a mine, not a gas well – (neither Bonnie nor the photographer labeled it as a gas well ) – but showing a coal mine in an anti-fracking news letter was enough to freak out the resident frack flak at the NY Post, Fred Dicker. . . . who then ran another picture (by Ed Wade not J Henry Fair) from The Flowback of a gas well site in West Virginia, and labeled it as a photo of a coal mine operation, under the headline “Big Fracking Mistake.” So much for the credibility of fracking Joe Camels. The big fracking mistake was all theirs, not Bonnie’s.
Here’s the Ed Wade photo of a gas drilling site that shale shill Fred Dicker thinks is a “coal mine”
“November 25, 2012
Dear Friends and distributors of The Flowback,
There is not one single word in The Flowback that is not based on, and cannot be backed up with, solid documentation and reporting, and that there is absolutely nothing wrong or illegal in its production and funding and that this also can be documented. So that the OGI (oil and gas industry – ed.) can only try to destroy The Flowback with ridiculous arguments, and, mainly, with attacks on me personally. What finally got their attention and sent them into attack mode was when we started sending The Flowback out inserted into Pennysavers and newspapers in NYS’s Southern Tier, where, in five counties, Governor Cuomo proposes to begin hydrofracking.
On October 22, 2012, two of the industry’s biggest guns, columnist/reporter Fred Dicker and the New York Post, were leveled on The Flowback in an attempt to blow it out of the water. Mr. Dicker is stationed in Albany, and, in addition to his job with The Post, he does a radio show which often includes attacks on anti-fracking interests.
The big guns boomed with an attack on The Flowback by Mr. Dicker on his radio show the same day that his page four “Exclusive” headlined “Big Fracking Mistake – Rival Ad Shows Coal Pic, Not Natural Gas”, appeared in The Post. (Search engine: Big Fracking Mistake – New York Post.) (By the way, note the use of the word “rival.” Rival to what or to whom? Mr. Dicker? The Post? The OGI? Wow, The Flowback has really arrived. And what “ad”? There are no ads.) The Post ran the wrong photo in the newspaper and mislabeled it. (“Big Fracking Mistake”, indeed.) In 2004, a Pace University survey rated the New York Post as the least-credible major news outlet in New York, and they have to live up to their reputation. Instead of the J Henry Fair photo on top of page 14 of The Flowback about which Mr. Dicker was accusing me of making false claims – a magnificent photo illustrating mountaintop removal, yes, for a coal mine – The Post ran the Ed Wade photo from the bottom of page 14, of an actual gas drilling pad on a West Virginia mountaintop! The caption under this Ed Wade photo of a mountaintop gas drilling site read, MINE, ALL MINE: This photo of a West Virginia coal mine by photographer J Henry Fair was re-used in a newspaper ad against natural-gas “hydrofracking” in New York. Talk about making false claims, how wonderfully ironic. Photographers J Henry Fair and Ed Wade did not share my amusement at this misrepresentation sent out to about 530,000 Post readers.
In his article, Mr. Dicker accuses me of distributing — “a “newspaper” that falsely claims a dramatic National Geographic picture of a West Virginia coal mine is a drilling site for natural gas, The Post has found.” Wrong – on three counts. First, look at the photo shown on the top of The Flowback’s page 14. There are no claims in The Flowback that this photo of mountaintop removal represents removal for gas drilling or that it is a drilling site for natural gas. It’s just an industrialized rural landscape.
Second, it is not a National Geographic photo, it is a J Henry Fair photo, its use properly licensed by me from J Henry Fair, that had also been used in National Geographic in March 2011 — as I am sure that such an extraordinary, heart-touching photo has been and will be licensed and used in many other places. Third, “picture of a West Virginia coal mine.” This is not a photo of a coal mine. It is a photo of mountaintop removal in preparation for a coal mine. It is interesting how the twisting of words, or inattention to the meaning of words, can so easily make “false claims.”
Mr. Dicker then includes comments from J Henry that are in quotes, and also comments without quotes, the latter indicating that Mr. Dicker has reformed J Henry’s words into his own. These comments, both quoted and paraphrased, are intended to accuse me of using the photo in a dishonest way, and of violating my agreement with J Henry. I am not really sure how Mr. Dicker got this sort of thing out of J Henry. What I can definitely attest to is that the photo was properly licensed and paid for, and that we have multiple emails regarding the negotiations between J Henry’s office with my production man — including an email from as late as October 19, three days before this piece appeared, which clearly states that J Henry’s office knew that my production man knew from the beginning that it is a photo of mountaintop removal for a coal mine, but that he intended to use it as an illustration of the environmental devastation of a rural landscape in general. It is an apt illustration of such leveling – and appears on the same page as a letter from Rose Baker of West Virginia, who is suffering from what she terms “mini-mountaintop removal” for gas drilling on the big hills around her West Virginia home. The email of October 19 states that our intended use of the photo was fine with J Henry’s office as long as J Henry received proper payment and credit. His office in effect agreed with us that mountaintop removal, major or mini, is mountaintop removal, and is an environmental disaster is just that, whatever the cause. The need to label the photo as pertaining to a coal mine was not discussed. Had there been such a requirement to go with the licensing, we would have so labeled it. When we asked J Henry’s assistant about J Henry’s comments as reported by The Post, she said, “He must have been misquoted.”
There are 53 other photos and graphics in The Flowback, 24 pages of articles, letters, commentary, banners and captions, with about 25,000 words all told. Yet Mr. Dicker found fault with not a one of those words, articles, or other photos. Instead, by mentioning my own lifetime achievements and experiences and my personal and spiritual beliefs in a slyly disparaging fashion, he sought to discredit The Flowback in its entirety by trying to discredit me.
Fred Dicker’s misrepresentation of that photo was enough to fire up the gas bags. On October 23rd the CNY Landowner’s Coalition ran an article (http://forums.cnylandcoalition.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4385) entitled Community Organizers and Community Dividers, The Flowback! While attacking Irving Wesley Hall, the nameless writer of the article (byline is ourland) also attacked me and The Flowback and falsely accused me of things that, in Mr. Dicker’s defense (!), were never stated in his Post article. Mr. Dicker never accused me of stealing the photo or of copyright infringement. Ourland did, and additionally said, “People like Irving continue to think taking personal property without just compensation is acceptable from copyrights to property rights, total disregard of any personal property. As far as the FlowBack the simple Mistake is the stolen opening photo this is the precursor for the rest of the rag.” (Sic. Butchered English form in copy.) How amusing for that writer, hiding behind the name ourland, supporting an invading industry that freely admits that it is engaged in a “land grab” by landmen aided by compulsory integration, to be accusing anti-frackers of taking property rights. The best that can be said for this writer is that he, or she, did not bother to read Mr. Dicker’s article.
Denise La Tourette then submitted her own misinformation to various outlets. Her October 25 Letter to the Editor of the Norwich Evening Sun again asserted that the Dicker article photograph has “exposed” The Flowback – on the basis of Mr. Dicker’s erroneous attack on the use of one photo out of 54.
Then came the fracking piece de resistance, the attack by Tom Shepstone of Energy in Depth, EID, a major OGI propaganda outlet. So far this attack has two parts. (Search engine: Presenting: From the Wild Side – The Flowback (Part 1).
As you read the introduction of (Part 1) you will immediately grasp the general quality of this piece. “A publication called The Flowback has turned heads in the Southern Tier but it turns out the whole thing is not only fatally flawed, but also financed by some very wealthy NIMBY types using an eccentric UFO follower as author.” Mr. Shepstone was searching for ways to smear me in order to discredit The Flowback. (If he ever loses his job propagandizing for the OGI, I am sure he can have an outstanding career writing for the National Enquirer.) Like Mr. Dicker, he obviously studied my website, bonniejonesreynolds.com, gleaning items from my biography on that site. He looked up my books on Amazon in order to quote some of the reviews, and ferreted out some other obscure sites publicizing my books. He looked up the charitable organization that I co-founded, Spring Farm CARES, springfarmcares.org, and it appears that he looked up SFC’s 990 Tax Returns all the way back to 2003 (that’s public information, unlike the 1040’s filed by you, me, Mr. Dicker, Mr. Shepstone and our legislators.) Then he obviously went through the many references that one finds in search engines regarding “Bonnie Jones Reynolds,” and came up with one of perhaps forty blog-talk radio shows that I did while publicizing my latest novel, The Magdalen. ISIS Paranormal Radio. Not only did he listen to that broadcast in order to quote from it, he provided a link to it in his article. None of this had anything to do with the articles in The Flowback.
Mr. Shepstone’s suppositions, flights of fancy, intimations, innuendos, outright lies, and attempts to label me as a kook went way beyond Mr. Dicker. Mr. Dicker’s piece sought only to discredit me with the aforementioned matter regarding the J Henry Fair photo; by subtly questioning my past, describing me as a “self-described former actress, author and adventurer”; by implying that there is big money behind The Flowback; and by saying, as he had gleaned from my biography, that I am “a woman who says she talks to animals…” and that I ““began to practice Interspecies Communication which is based…on the realization that telepathy is the language of the universe.”” (Interestingly, a blogger in the UK (!) picked up on the Interspecies Communication part that very day, went on a scurrilous rant against me personally, and called me a “******* moron.” As to the moron part, the last time my IQ had a checkup, it was 135. But I have not been able to find ******* in the dictionary.)
My travels include visits to some 35 countries. I have circumnavigated the globe four times. I am the author of five books — 2 best-selling Gothic novels, one published in 1972 and re-published in 2010, the other published in 1975; a yoga textbook written for my teacher, Bikram Choudhury, a continual top-seller, in print since 1978 and now in a second edition; a chronicle of Spring Farm CARES published in 2005; and my latest novel, The Magdalen, published in 2009, for which I did years of research into Biblical and Middle Eastern history. Of late, putting in more years of research, this time into hydrofracking, and coming to understand the threat that hydrofracking poses to all that we hold dear, with the help of just one production guy, I wrote, compiled, financed out of my own savings account, and published The Flowback.
Mr. Shepstone dwells at length on the ISIS radio show, lifting this and that out of context in an attempt to make me – and so The Flowback — seem ridiculous, while in truth displaying his own ignorance. That show was done a couple of years ago. I had never bothered to listen to it, but now I used Mr. Shepstone’s convenient link to do so. Actually you might all like to tune in, we covered some interesting and fun topics. (None of which have anything to do with fracking or The Flowback. – ed.)
There are two more elements to Mr. Shepstone’s attack on me in (Part I) that deserve special mention. Both involve totally erroneous assumptions that The Flowback is backed with big money, seemingly by millions of dollars. This train of thought was begun by Mr. Dicker in his radio and Post attacks, then taken to ridiculous and perhaps libelous extremes by Mr. Shepstone.
It takes only a bit of common sense to realize how foolish these claims are. If millions of dollars had gone into The Flowback—oh, don’t I wish–I would have been able to do such huge printings that the cost per copy would have plummeted. There would be many more of copies of The Flowback out there, instead of only the approximate 140,000 that I have managed to get printed and distributed.
First of all let me put to rest Mr. Shepstone’s brazen and despicable attack on the charitable organization that I co-founded, Spring Farm CARES, starting with his advice to Chip Northrup to cease urging donations for The Flowback because, since SFC has lots of money, “Reynolds’ organization apparently doesn’t need it.” What he is implying is that I somehow have access to SFC’s money, or that Spring Farm CARES is financing The Flowback. Buzzer please. Wrong answer. Mr. Shepstone’s ignorance is really showing here. (Editor’s note: By the way, ignorance is not to be confused with stupidity. To be ignorant of a situation is simply to be unaware of the facts of that situation. We will hope that Mr. Shepstone is merely ignorant, and not totally malevolent.) Mr. Shepstone obviously read the 990s filed with the IRS pretty thoroughly, as he commented on donated assets that we had way back in 2003, calling them depreciable, though they were non-depreciable (more ignorance on his part.) He should have understood from perusing the 990s that most of SFC’s assets are in what are termed “restricted funds.” Restricted funds can be used or spent only under strict guidelines laid down by the donor of the funds. In this case, the funds are an endowment. For SFC, that money is there and yet not there, as we can only use the income that we receive from investing it. Mr. Shepstone must have noted that we use every penny of the money from investments, coupled with donations and any miscellaneous incomes, to maintain our exempt-purpose programs. Every penny that comes in is expended on those programs. There is no wiggle room, there are no extra funds floating around. As a matter of fact, with the cost of everything going up, we have, of late, been struggling with a serious funding gap. Mr. Shepstone also has to have noticed that my small yearly salary, and my health insurance, is the sum total of my own possible access to SFC funds.
In his closing statement of (Part I) Mr. Shepstone says, “The most fundamental facts from The Flowback are not just wrong, but spectacularly wrong.”
Part of that Big Lie is that Mr. Dicker’s article in The Post somehow “exposed,” “destroyed,” or “discredited” The Flowback — all of it, all 24 pages, all of the 25,000-some words, and 54 photos and graphics — and that Mr. Dicker somehow “shredded Reynolds’ credibility.” The fact that Mr. Dicker made some erroneous and unfounded accusations about one photo, ridiculed me personally, and mentioned my financial sponsor, in the opinions of these desperate builders of The Big Lie, does all of that.
But the biggest lie a-building here is that The Flowback is backed by millions of dollars funneled to me by “wealthy NIMBY types,” that, perhaps, these wealthy NIMBYs (including the Rockefellers for gosh sakes, I’ve met and been in contact with a lot of people, but never a Rockefeller) hired me to write The Flowback. Buzzer, please. Very, very wrong answer. Actually, Mr. Dicker should know the right answer, because I told him.
Up to this moment in time (November 25, 2012,) every single issue of The Flowback in print has been financed by funds from my own savings and by grassroots contributions from people and groups who are helping to distribute The Flowback. Not one single penny has been received from any other source. This can be fully documented.
The hue and cry from The Big Lie folks is in regard to my financial sponsor, Sustainable Markets Foundation. The catch is that that relationship is totally new to involvement with The Flowback, so new that, as of this writing, it has had no affect whatsoever on The Flowback. Just before the last printing of The Flowback, Sustainable accepted The Flowback as a project, agreeing to act as its fiscal sponsor. This is a frequent and IRS approved arrangement. Non-profits/foundations are allowed to fiscally sponsor projects which align with their own non-profit purposes. My new arrangement with SMF would allow grassroots donors to deduct their donations, and that was announced in the last printing. But, so far, there have been only more grassroots donations, certainly no grants, and, as stated above, the relationship with Sustainable, itself, has not as yet contributed one cent to The Flowback’s activity. This can also be documented.
Let’s look at (Search Engine, please) Presenting, From the Wild Side – The Flowback (Part II). This one begins with what you now can see are outright lies and misrepresentations. “The Flowback is a propaganda piece developed with the help of a group named the Sustainable Markets Foundation, which is apparently run on behalf of trial lawyers with money provided by two very famous families. The facts about natural gas development contrast sharply with the fiction that constitutes The Flowback.”
First, he objects to one of the comments on the cover of the 7th Edition of The Flowback, “Broome County, have you spoken with your PA neighbors lately? They are plumb out of water!” Mr. Shepstone argues that the OGI uses less water than some other industries, and so the projected 10 billion gallons that the OGI will use each year in the Susquehanna River Basin is “…a relatively minor source of water use.” He explains that the Susquehanna River Basin Commission has the whole thing under control and he provides a link to help us understand how the SRBC does that. (He does not mention the de facto moratorium of the Delaware River Basin Commission, which commission has been sensibly holding off any hydrofracking while they study the issue.)
The problem with Mr. Shepstone’s defense of the OGI’s water usage is that that scenario could come close to reality in the not-too-distant future. First, it should be understood that, as stated in National Geographic, “In essence, only 0.007 percent of the planet’s water is available to fuel and feed its 6.8 billion people.” That population continues to grow, as does our profligate use of, waste of, and contamination of our fresh water. And that is part of what can destroy that fragile 0.007% and kill us all. A current, 20-nation report predicts that 100 million people will die by 2030 if we fail to act on climate change. Another prediction says that the world, that in October 2011 reached a population of seven billion, will be down to more like two billion people by the end of the century due to mass die-off resulting from climate change and our continued carbon-based madness. While others insist that the 1%, or even less, through the auspices of the UN, plans to kill off the other 99%+ entirely, leaving only about 100,000 of themselves to enjoy whatever they have left of the earth to enjoy. One way or the other, that 0.007 is in grave peril.
Some good news, the bromide level from fracking wastes is abating in the Monongahela River, which provides drinking water for some 800,000 people. Bromides, combining with chorine in drinking water, can cause cancer. Unfortunately, the bromide level is way up in the Allegheny River, which provides drinking water for more hundreds of thousands. And, since dumping of fracking waste into Pennsylvania streams was, and continues to be, a large problem, the contents of dozens of other streams is suspect.
Of course then there are the Water Buffalos, “the fastest growing species in Pennsylvania” –tanks that hold (hopefully) clean water being delivered by hydrofracking companies to families whose wells they have contaminated. More and more Water Buffalos appear daily, a growing water crisis in areas being hydrofracked.
In January 2012, we learned that the Shell Oil Corporation, parent of multiple drilling companies operating in Pennsylvania, is negotiating with the town of Painted Post, New York, to obtain a million gallons a day from their municipal water system — putting in possible future jeopardy one of New York’s aquifers. They are even proposing to build a railroad to transport this New York State water to Pennsylvania. If there is plenty of water available in Pennsylvania, why do they need to buy New York State water?
Last but not least, Mr. Shepstone conveniently ignores the fact that water used in industries which do use more water than the OGI—such as energy and recreation—do not permanently remove the water that they use from the system, permanently poison it, sending some of it permanently down thousands of feet into the earth, while other parts of the poisoned product will eventually permanently poison wells, ground water, and aquifers. Permanent is the word here. There is no going back once the genie is out of this bottle. The basic amount of water used by the OGI, massive as that amount is, is only the beginning of the trillions of gallons of the world’s precious water, that substance without which life cannot endure on this planet, that will be permanently poisoned and removed from the safe water available to the populations of this world.
Mr. Shepstone then faults this on page 4: What “poisons” will enter your drinking water should hydrofracking be allowed in NY? Over nine hundred chemicals, plus methane and radioactive elements (NORMs.) To refute this, he first uses two statements from EPA director, Lisa Jackson, one in testimony on Capitol Hill, one to Fox News, to the effect that she was not aware of any cases where “the fracking process” has affected water. Amazingly, one of her statements was made after an AP investigation had found that she had allowed herself to be persuaded by the governor of Wyoming to postpone the announcement of an EPA study which definitely linked chemicals “consistent with gas production and hydraulic fracturing fluids” in that agency’s “deep monitoring wells in the aquifer” around Pavillion, Wyoming. This gave state officials, who had been privately briefed on the results, time to begin a barrage of propaganda debunking the study in advance of its announcement to the public! One has got to ask whose side Mrs. Jackson is on – that of truth, and the public and environment she supposedly serves, or of big Oil & Gas? Wikipedia observes that, “She has often been noted for her support of hydrofracking,” Wikipedia further observes that she supports hydrofracking despite EPA reports as far back as 1987 and now in May 2011 [not to mention the ongoing EPA study in Dimock, PA] which studies finger hydrofracking as the likely source of water contamination in multiple cases. If anyone is discredited, it is Mrs. Jackson. Her statements are a very poor choice here.
Mr. Shepstone then wonders where I got the “over nine hundred” figure from, and he then quotes another thoroughly discredited source, the NYS DEC’s SGEIS on hydrofracking – page five, where they list, he says, “a whole lot less than 900.” “…any individual fracturing job will only involve a handful of chemicals, and may not include any category of chemicals,” is the quote he uses. Investigative reporting has found that the DEC conferred with the OGI throughout the production of the SGEIS. This sort of statement points up the extent to which the DEC/OGI SGEIS collaboration is compromised, and the total disregard of the big picture and cumulative effects by both the DEC and the OGI.
The figure of 900 is actually my attempt to strike a medium. It is quoted from work of Dr. Theo Colburn and reports of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, (TEDX), which found “596 chemicals in 900 chemical products.” Which is a lot less than an April 2011 report, Chemicals Used in Hydraulic Fracturing, prepared for Representatives Henry Waxman, Edward Markey, and Diana DeGette by the Committee Staff of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce. That report found “more than 2,500 hydraulic fracturing products containing 750 chemicals and other components.” Now Theo Colburn has found a few more as well. TEDX’s peer-reviewed, accepted-for-publication report of November 9, 2012, Air Quality Near Natural Gas Operations, speaks of “two extensive lists of more than 750 chemicals that [gas] companies admit they use.” (There is also a site called SkyTruth, just out, with teeth-curling information about the chemicals – and the strictly illegal diesel — used in hydrofracking.)
Mr. Shepstone then writes at length about FracFocus.org, a “voluntary” OGI site, recently established by the OGI in an attempt to answer the growing demand of the public to know what is in fracking fluid. OGI propagandists will tell you that, “There is no secret as to what is in fracking fluids. Just go to FracFocus.org. You’ll even find the coordinates of wells, and a list of everything that was used in that well.” Except that when you go to the site, you find that only a fraction of the existing wells are there, and the list of chemicals used is not complete because certain chemicals that they consider proprietary secrets still do not have to be revealed. And how many chemicals does FracFocus say are ever used in hydrofracking? Fifty-nine.
In his discussion of NORMs, he starts with a statement that perfectly reveals the OGI/propagandist habit of downplaying the poisonous and harmful elements unleashed in the hydrofracking process. “Finally, as for NORM levels, the acronym stands for “naturally occurring radioactive material,” which is the first clue there is less here than meets the eye from The Flowback.” “Oh,” we dummies are supposed to say. “All this radioactivity is natural. That makes all the difference in the world. If it’s natural, it can’t hurt us, can it.”
Mr. Shepstone then goes on to pooh-pooh the Marvin Resnikoff report on the dangers of radon, the second highest cause of lung cancer, in natural gas from the radon-rich Marcellus Shale, which radon Resnikoff calculates will be 36.9 to 2576 pCi/L at the wellhead, up to 70 times more than the average radon at the well-heads in other shales. Resnikoff calculates that there will be 1,182 to 30,448 additional deaths in NYS due to Marcellus Shale natural gas, and he is especially concerned about NYC apartment house kitchens, most of which are on inside walls and lack adequate ventilation. (Radon is not destroyed when gas is burned, and would be even more dangerous in poorly ventilated apartments.) Mr. Shepstone bases his limp attempt to discredit Resnikoff’s work on a USGS report on radon which says that Resnikoff’s report “relies on theoretical calculations utilizing limited data from geologic analogs.” (By the by, aren’t all the “scientific” assurances from geologists that hydrofracking is perfectly safe predicated on geologic analogs?) Mr. Shepstone does not mention that this USGS report goes on to admit that its own dataset is “small and preliminary,” that the data that they present is “too small to reliably characterize the reservoirs or to yield statistically valid results,” and it admits that, in its limited sampling, they already found radon activity as high as 79 pCi/L, which, in two half lives, 7.6 days, more than enough time for Marcellus Shale gas from drilling in New York to reach New York kitchens, would decay to 19.8 pCi/L. They then state that the EPA “threshold for remediation of radon in indoor air is 4 pCi/L.” I am sure that all the folks in those poorly ventilated New York City apartment kitchens would be thrilled to learn of this “maybe.” Or what about rural families who lease and make deals to have the stuff piped directly into their kitchens, not even giving it two half lives during which to decay?
Please follow Mr. Shepstone’s links to the Resnikoff report, as well as the USGS report. And, for an understanding of potential radioactivity in general, read, if you have not already, Consideration of Radiation in Hazardous Waste Produced from Horizontal Hydrofracking, October 2012, Grassroots Environmental Education.
For more answers in regard to the high and dangerous levels of radioactivity to be found in the waste and by-products of hydrofracking, upon which The Flowback’s statements are based, check out Scientific American, Abrahm Lustgarten and Pro Publica, and information regarding the court case of Gary Abraham against the Chemung County Landfill.
I am sure that Mr. Shepstone will continue to attack The Flowback. He has promised his followers a (Part III). But remember The Big Lie. He started (Part I) by calling The Flowback “fatally flawed.” But it is his own writing, sources, and cause that are fatally flawed. He ended (Part II) by calling The Flowback “fiction.” It is the OGI’s irresponsible propaganda, and steadfast insistence on downplaying, or even refusing to admit, any fault, any dangers, or giving any credence to the completely legitimate concerns of those opposed to hydrofracking, that makes of their words pre-meditated fiction and outright, purposeful lies.
We, The Flowback and I, need your help more than ever.
