Come to the First Annual Fracking Fish Fry!

 

"fracking" is short hand for hydraulic fracturing.  It is a drilling method designed to inject sand, water and a host of nasties into gas wells to shatter layers of shale and extract natural gas.  It is the technique behind a natural gas rush that is taking place in parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.  It frequently results in the destruction of aquifers, the ruining of wells, and has even resulted in houses being blown off their foundations as we saw recently in Bainbridge, Ohio.      We offer a unique fish fry that will feature Shrimp BP, Walleye Frackassee, and Salmon Valdez, served up by our cooks Moma Frack and Papa Frack.  The fish fry will feature speakers before and after the fry that will comment and inform our diners of the similarities between what is happening in the Gulf with the BP oil spill, and what is happening in Northeast Ohio with natural gas drilling.   Sponsors:  The Northeast Ohio chapter of the Sierra Club, the Cleveland Climate Watch, and the Northeast Ohio Gas Accountability Project.   Contact:  Randy Cunningham  randino@sbcglobal.net   home 216-631-3337  cell 216-245-1073.   What will I learn?    What the implications of gas drilling will be for our region, and especially our watersheds and Lake Erie.  Why you should get involved in stopping the natural gas steam roller.  And most important of all, how you can get involved.   See you there!    "fracking" is short hand for hydraulic fracturing.  It is a drilling method designed to inject sand, water and a host of nasties into gas wells to shatter layers of shale and extract natural gas.  It is the technique behind a natural gas rush that is taking place in parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.  It frequently results in the destruction of aquifers, the ruining of wells, and has even resulted in houses being blown off their foundations as we saw recently in Bainbridge, Ohio.      We offer a unique fish fry that will feature Shrimp BP, Walleye Frackassee, and Salmon Valdez, served up by our cooks Moma Frack and Papa Frack.  The fish fry will feature speakers before and after the fry that will comment and inform our diners of the similarities between what is happening in the Gulf with the BP oil spill, and what is happening in Northeast Ohio with natural gas drilling.   Sponsors:  The Northeast Ohio chapter of the Sierra Club, the Cleveland Climate Watch, and the Northeast Ohio Gas Accountability Project.   Contact:  Randy Cunningham  randino@sbcglobal.net   home 216-631-3337  cell 216-245-1073.   What will I learn?    What the implications of gas drilling will be for our region, and especially our watersheds and Lake Erie.  Why you should get involved in stopping the natural gas steam roller.  And most important of all, how you can get involved.   See you there!
