Conscious Voices, Fracking the Wayne pt 2

59:48 minutes (54.75 MB)

Hard to believe it's been 4 years since I attended, and reported on an "open house" by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources regarding proposed oil and gas ("fracking") leases in the Wayne National Forest. Plans to auction thnose leases are now being fast-tracked, but a coalition of environmental groups is gearing up to fight it. Recently the Ohio Revolution, the local affiliate of Bernie Sanders' national group, "Our Revolution" held a strategy session in Columbus to help coordinate that campaign. Audio featured in this show from that meeting features representatives from the Ohio Environmental Council, The Buckeye Forest Council, Athens County Fracking Action Network, and the Ohio Sierra Club.
