FRACKIN' in Baldwin Hills to Earthquake US ? huh?

by scared silly Friday, May. 18, 2012 at 6:45 AM

The news is coming out in LA too..FRACKING...the drilling into 'shale' with chemical polluted water [wasting water by more than bucketfulls, by more than waterfallfulls] is happening in our own back yard, but where ? not far from our LAX airport - in Baldwin Hills. Scientific evidence is IN - fracking [sounds similar to f--king of the evil not pleasant kind] is correlated to EARTHQUAKES and our San Andreas is complaining loudly that he wants to burst out again, not only to warn us, but destroy parts of us too.

Fracking was discussed at the Hammer Forum Josh Fox and Bill McKibben– and hosted by Ian Master on May 15,2012 . And this event will be on line podcast in a few weeks for everyone else to view and get become informed as many of us where.

please see this-

and check back in 3 weeks to download this great program that you may have missed now.

And other information is here - re corporations are doing fracking in Baldwin Hills and that it causes earthquakes:

Finally some truths are being spoken, the realities are Coming Out, the secrets are leaking and the FRACKING is being questioned.

The dangers are revealed and they are scaring us silly, those who are becoming Educated about this new version of “energy is in USA territories and we can give up our trying to control the Mid East…” [no one else said that but this writer in those simplified words ].

Fracking – is =

see [] says “hydrofracking, commonly known as fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction.[a][1] This type of fracturing creates fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations.”


[ ] which says “fracking, is the process of utilizing pressurized water, chemical additives, and physical propellants to fracture rock layers and release petroleum, natural gas, or other substances so that they can be extracted. Environmental safety and health concerns about this process have emerged and are being debated at the state and national levels.”

Now definitions are not the actuality. and REALITY can NOT be so easily manipulated as words, concepts, propaganda, sales pitches, and PR also known as self-serving-spin- for-profits-and-publicity.

Fracking is a simple word but the destruction and contamination of what are Natural Lands and personal properties and USA national parks is much bigger and more complicated.

At the Hammer Museum Forum, two very knowledable and involved activists spoke to a full audience who sat transfixed and then who became activated and angry at what shared. In our very own Be-Safe-Don’t-Worry-Los-Angeles -City-of-politicians-and-angels.

FRACKING is already breaking up the land in Baldwin Hills, while we casually pretend we are not endangered by the EARTHQUAKE fault-lines that are constantly reported to be ready to break open Again !

The LA Weekly article says it simply and there are more articles spurting up more verification and questions as well.

See these :

and then there are more at a google-search here :

Figuring anyone reading this who may also be SCARED or worried or have kids or property or survival skills can also read these articles, quotes nor plagiarism will be included here. You can search for more and then …

PLEASE CONTINUE TO PASS-ON and share the information to others to help up-swell more activism and Protection of our lands from the corporate-profit-makers who do Not Care about us or nature or the land or the shales or the water diminished supplies.

The companies who have been given implied permission and even encouragement to continue Destroying our precious fragile planet.

If we all sit back saying, “what can I do, I’m poor …I’m working…I’m desperately trying to find a job…I’m busy with my own personal life…I’m tired….I’m depressed…I’m helpless…I’m just a nobody…’ and every other excuse in any book, our DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES will be used or diverted for commercial uses.

Chemicals will pollute our lands after which our agriculture will carry that further into our food supplies and dust and become airborne maybe too.

The profiteers will insure with new laws, deregulations and government policies that they “deserve and must” continue doing whatever profits them, not The People, not The Land, not Nature, not Earth.

Fracking will cut into our Wild West and every other state in what is called our “union” of states protected by federal lobbyist-bought-congress-and-politicians.

And when continually ingrained and in control, our voices will falter and become less able to even question, much less regulate or control what AFFECTS every single living being on this plant, not just in Baldwin Hills, not just in LA or CA but everywhere …. profiteers are global and they refuse to stop, if allowed to continue to get their grips and fracturing machinery and policies in OUR earth.

Petitions are available for gathering signatures to send to [yes, mostly corrupt but so called “voted in as represent- atives” of The People] = your government officials.

see here for more info on how to get a petition or sign up on one:

And since Fracking is not limited to our small town here, contact those you know in other states that are also endangered or propositioned to allow this scary extraction of ‘gases’ in a unhealthy and kill-the-earth-f_k-it-give-me -the-cash-gas! manner.

Share what you know with everyone any where, here or elsewhere. Send them your information.

Create your own petition or make a flyer for Your Own Neighborhood, or your Church, or your Organization, make it local, make it grass-rooted-in-your-own-life-and-place.

Don’t pretend you cant. Don’t say you don’t care. You will later if not yet. Baldwin Hill may be ‘far from my place’ but you can be assured the side-effects and proliferation of destruction to get more OUT of our earth for quick short-term-use-and-profits will soon come to your front door and leak inside as well.

When you turn on your faucet, it may not immediately be lit on fire, but your innards and body and children will have the contained effects, and it will be a long time until some CDC or scientific test will admit, “oh, we did not realize it exposed all those people too….oh…we are Not Liable nor At Fault….it must be something else..” .

Sure. Too late.

Do something. Now. Stop Fracking. In any back yard, not even yours …yet.
