Fracked Gas Rally is July 29

On July 29 in Greenfield, there will be a rally against a proposed fracked gas pipeline. The rally starts at 5 p.m. outside the Greenfield Middle School at 195 Federal Street. At 6:30 p.m. at the school, federal regulators will hold a public hearing about the proposal.

The proposal comes from Texas-based Kinder Morgan Corporation. The pipeline would carry gas that is mined using a process called “fracking,” which poisons drinking water. Fracked gas is a fossil fuel. It causes climate change, which the world's leading scientists say is a major threat to earth's ability to support human life.

The approximately 33-inch diameter pipeline would pass near Greenfield, Keene, and Brattleboro. It would run from near Albany, New York to near Boston.

Fracked gas is mined by Exxon Mobil corporation. The CEO of Exxon Mobil makes about $40 million a year. Exxon Mobil received $6.2 billion in subsidies from taxpayers in the USA between 2010 and 2012. That's according to www.AmericansForTaxFairness.org.
