Illinois ... The Next GASLAND?

Fracking Away Our Future
Featuring Tabitha Tripp
Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment

Just weeks ago, the Illinois House and Senate approved bills that will regulate hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”.  This Halliburton-developed drilling technology of  shale gas extraction has the potential to unlock a “Saudi Arabia  of natural gas”  in Illinois. But at what cost?  And who would bear the brunt of the impacts?

Watch Josh Fox’s Gasland, Part I to learn about the impacts of fracking.  Then, meet Tabitha Tripp from Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment to learn about:

  • The campaign for a moratorium, which would have allowed time to study and assess impacts from fracking.
  • Regulations that were moved forward by our elected officials, despite concerns raised by residents, activists, and environmental organizations.
  • What’s next in the fight to protect natural resources and the people of Illinois from this highly controversial method of natural gas extraction.

Event is Sponsored by:
Eco-Justice Collaborative
Great Lakes Bioneers Chicago
Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ

In this video, Tabitha Tripp of SAFE (Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing our Environment) protests SB1715 – a bill to open up Illinois to fracking – outside the Illinois Governor’s Office.
