Saving Gros Morne

Last month's Green Drinks was special for two reasons. First, we had our best turnout to date, a group so vast it could only be captured with a panoramic shot.

Second, the prospect of another environmental project emerged, stopping the fracking of Gros Morne National Park. Today Pia Banzhaf has brought to our attention a movement to oppose this travesty. Here are two links to online petitions: one and two. Please sign them and share.

Apropos of that, last night's Daily Show guest was the director of the documentary "Gas Land part II" decrying fracking. Check out the segment and notice the clip with the flammable well water. That's what would happen at Gros Morne to say nothing of its losing its UNESCO status.  In the parlance of "Battlestar Galactica," that's frakked up!

And of course, such a move is completely unnecessary. Newfoundland has a glut of renewable energy that's largely unutilized; it's called "wind."

See you at the next Green Drinks on August 28th.
