Tell the EPA: Fracking Chemicals Shouldn’t Be Secret

Imagine finding out that you’ve been unknowingly drinking water contaminated by fracking, the extreme process of extracting oil and natural gas by pumping toxic chemicals underground. Now, imagine that you don’t know, and aren’t allowed to know, what’s making your water toxic.

Tell the EPA: Fracking chemicals need to be disclosed.

Fracking is an extreme method of extracting oil and natural gas by pumping toxic chemicals underground. Despite the serious risks involved in the process, fracking companies are exempt from key environmental protections. There’s no amount of transparency that will make fracking safe, but disclosure of the chemicals used in the process will give communities more power to fight back.

The Environmental Protection Agency is accepting public comments on whether or not to require fracking companies to disclose the toxic chemicals they use.

Tell the EPA: Fracking chemicals need to be disclosed.

A part of the abortion debate I find baffling…

…is opposition to contraception.   Reducing contraception access = more unwanted pregnancies = more abortions later = how far up your ass does your head need to be to not see this???

Why is History Channel featuring this conspiracy nut?

Right-wing radio host Alex Jones is an unhinged nut who regularly spouts outlandish conspiracy theories, including his latest — that the recent shootings in Las Vegas were in fact staged by the government.  Not surprising, of course, since he also has claimed the government was involved in the Oklahoma City bombings and 9/11. 

But why in the world would the History Channel feature this lunatic as a legitimate source on one of its shows? 

Yes, Jones was actually featured on an episode of “America’s Book of Secrets “, one dealing with how the value of gold is determined.  Featured along with legitimate sources, such as economist and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich.  And allowed to spout his conspiracy theory nonsense unchallenged.

Yes, the History Channel has strayed from pure “history” shows in the past, and no one is saying they should only run nothing but 100% pure historical documentaries 24/7.   But featuring a right-wing conspiracy nut like Jones alongside legitimate sources takes “jumping the shark” to a whole new level. Worse yet, given that most viewers probably don’t know his record, they might reasonably assume that his cockamamie theories are true, given the implicit endorsement by a source as legitimate as this channel.

Tell the History Channel: Stop featuring Alex Jones as a legitimate source.
