Urgent Action Needed! Pro Fracking PR Hack Descends Upon Chapel Hill: Tell Flyleaf Books to Cancel Event Immediately! (Please Forward Widely) UNC’s Humanities in Action program plans to bring the president of an oil and gas company that makes money off of hydraulic fracturing to speak in support of this dangerous natural gas extraction practice at a local independent bookstore called Flyleaf Books. There will be no one present to tell the other side of the story: that fracking has caused major disasters all over the country from well explosions, to methane leached in to water aquifers, poisoned families, carcinogens and hundreds of toxins leached into our rivers. The event is scheduled for December 7th from 3:30-5 p.m. and tickets cost $20.
Let’s stop this corporate charade – Tell Flyleaf Books to cancel this event! Our water and environment are more important than corporate profits! Quotes from their flyer: “We live in a society that cannot function in its present state without access to copious amounts of fossil fuels. How can we extract these resources …? What is the science behind oil and gas extraction? Where are the deposits and how can we get them? Dr. Carl Trowell, President of WesternGeco, the geophysical services division of Schlumberger, will be on hand to explain oil and gas exploration and drilling from the perspective of those who do it.”
