Artists

The members of Artists Against Fracking came together over concerns about the impacts of fracking on water, air and local communities in the State of New York. Through information made available by the EPA and the gas companies themselves, we believe that fracking is a danger to New Yorkers. AAF is focusing on New York as a first step in a global effort.

    I love the video “dont’ frack your mother”… this is a heartfelt issue for me (I live in Cleveland) People here are speaking out…towns are saying “NO”…as we watch, in dismay, all the stuff that’s already happening in the Youngstown, OH area….it’s a lesson that needs to be shared about what this heinous process does to our environment! Thank you so VERY much for this awesome “actor speak” on fracking. I hope and pray it goes viral… I have passed it on and asked others to follow! :)

    • Fracking Jobs

      Well, Tamara, I’m from Akron – and I’m hearing the exact opposite. There are plenty of folks in Ohio that are pro-fracking. As a matter of fact, Youngstown – for decades a declining and depressed city – is enjoying some mild economic resurgence due to fracking. Perhaps you’ve heard of “steel mills”? They powered Youngstown for decades before you were born. I can assure you that they were far more damaging to the environment than fracking could ever be. Instead of sucking up to some spoiled “artists”, take a look at how fracking is providing opportunities for not only the Youngstown area but such areas as southeast Ohio – long an economic basket case. If you care about your fellow human beings, you’ll allow them a chance to have better economic opportunities – something these “artists” could care less about. And, as others have mentioned, use fossil fuels in their high-carbon-output private jets. Hypocrisy: it’s not what’s for dinner; it’s what’s preached by the anti-fracking crowd.

      • Marcia Wilbur

        fracking jobs, you’re an ignorant idiot; how’s it gonna be economic when we have a dead planet that NO-ONE can live on because we allowed fracking? and if it’s so good how come almost every other country in the world has banned it? you better check your facts instead of letting your mouth overload your ass. check out pennsylvania fracking, and arkansas fracking, to see what it’s done for those people. see what kind of economic resurgence they’ve experienced now that their homes and land are permanently destroyed, and worth less than nothing, because no-one or nothing can live there. which oil or gas company do you work for or own stock in, You troll?

        • Fracking Jobs

          My dear Marcia – so angry, so bitter, so unhappy. Here’s hoping this doesn’t last for you. But that’s a separate issue; instead – let’s discuss the many ways where you are flat-out incorrect…

          1) I am not, and have never been, an employee of any oil or gas company, nor am I recipient of any funding from any oil or gas company.
          2) Not only do I not own stocks in any oil or gas company – I don’t own any stocks AT ALL. BTW if you are invested in an IRA, 401(k), or some type of mutual fund, Marcia, you in fact may very well be invested in one or several oil or gas companies.
          3) Unlike the many “artists” who have put their names on this website to try to dictate to the rest of us how we should live our lives, I have worked as a trucker and support those with commerical licenses who would prefer to make a good living in the oil and gas industry. Your almighty “artists” certainly don’t have a problem collecting million$ from their “art”, so it strikes me as pretty hypocritical that you and these “artists” would deprive hard-working Americans from attempting to make a decent living – on far less than million$ – by providing you, and them, with the fossil fuels you use every single day. Whether you care to admit to that use or not.
          4) Oil shale extraction via fracking continues to improve with technology, and the practice actually has roots going back decades. In addition, studies are beginning to show how the process is safe and environmentally sound, and I’m talking about studies NOT funded by oil or gas companies. Get informed and use something other than midguided angry emotions to debate those you disagree with. Unfortunately, it’s fashionable to be an environmentalist nazi and fight against a potential source of income for many low-income families who simply want to better their lives.

          Your side constantly rails against the 1%. I’m as far from the 1% as one can get, but that doesn’t mean I can’t support a major opportunity for economic resurgence in many of parts of the U.S. that need it most. Your assumptions about me couldn’t be more wrong, a very common affliction with those like you on the left. The “sky is falling” hyperbole your side loves to spew is a tired and overused tactic that goes back generations where environmental concerns lie. The planet is just fine and won’t be imploding due to fracking any time soon. Childish insults don’t make your points any more valid.

        • Frank Chernega

          Why, fracking is so deadly and dangerous, 30 states in the U.S. now allow it with California being the latest with Gov Gerry “Moonbeam” Brown, one of the country’s more ardent enviros, permitting it. Your argument is totally without merit and sounds like some tripe you heard from watching Gasland. BTW, Josh Fox who produced the aforementioned comic documentary, showed two overhead views of his home in Milanville, Pa in Gasland 2 and guess what? Despite his ranting throughout the movie that we should stop using fossil fuels and go to renewables, he DOES NOT HAVE A SOLAR ARRAY ON THE ROOF OF THAT HOUSE IN MILANVILLE. Hypocrisy at its worst!

    Love your vid. Thank you! I wanted to let y’all know about a lush and seductive music-video about rising seas that also has a nice little slap down of the fossil fuel industry in it… EnviroSiren’s SOS:
    http://vimeo.com/user5156567/envirosiren

    • celtnik

      Rising seas? If the seas are rising, we are probably getting more ice. Have you ever heard of the Archimedes principle? Never mind, it’s too complicated for someone who couldn’t pass a 7th grade earth science class. Try this, put a can of soda in the freezer and see what happens.

      • Jules

        You obviously like being stupid and unkind yourself.

        • celtnik

          So, you didn’t try it. If I understand you correctly, people like you who want to drive up fuel prices, which hurts low income families the most are the compassionate ones?

          • Jules

            Look, the cost of short term fuel price increases does not compare to the price we’ll pay for the longterm destruction of our planet’s biosphere. And if you want to debate the science with me, please consider: the vast majority of the world’s climatologists have found evidence it’s real. The burden of proof is on the “deniers.” That’s how science works, even in 7th grade. Peace out (and in). Earthly love, E.S.

          • celtnik

            Science is not determined by consensus, besides most of those scientists are receiving government grants to perpetuate the notion of “climate change” otherwise known as weather, to keep getting money. Michael Mann was caught sending e-mails to colleagues asking them to continue to cover it up for Christ’s sake. The IPCC went through a lawsuit because some of the scientists they put on their report years ago didn’t believe in the phenomenon. As a matter of fact, in their latest report they admitted what us people who aren’t drones know, that there has been a 15 year cooling trend. And it’s not going to end anytime soon. Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record large extent for it’s second straight year, it’s a at a 35 year high. These are just a few examples, there’s more. Besides, going back to our earth science discussion, warming wouldn’t be a bad thing. There would be more rainfall, longer growing seasons and more CO2, I would think the green movement would be thrilled. You guys are scared of plant food. Also, as I mentioned, there wouldn’t be any rising sea levels since the soda can experiment was supposed to show you that water in solid form displaces more space than it does in liquid.

          • Jules

            Indeed it’s not “science by consensus”–it’s a mountain of evidence that the overwhelming majority of scientists have compiled supporting anthropogenic climate change. If you want to pretend it’s not happening, *you’re* the one who is burdened with producing the evidence supporting that hypothesis and I don’t mean cherry picking! Also, I suggest you look at the fossil fuel industries covert funding of climate change deniers from the Heritage Foundation on down–talk about a smoking gun, or rather, smokestack?! Regarding the sea ice highs in the Antarctic: That doesn’t contradict the idea of global warming — for one thing, the growth is very slow compared with ice loss in the Arctic …(from http://www.climatecentral.org/news/winds-of-change-why-antarctic-sea-ice-is-growing-16507). Here is the reality on global temperature trends (and cold winters do not disprove this fact): ” All the indicators show that global warming is still happening.” from http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-cooling.htm I’m tired of debating you silly Earthling. It’s time to write another song… Earthly love, EnivroSiren.

          • celtnik

            Deniers, love that word, it’s textbook Marxist demonization. So what if the Fossil Fuel industry has paid for research? They have published their finding for review, but data from the IPCC or NASA, it’s all faked or not available, most of it paid for by taxpayers. Those guys cooking fake AGW data, they aren’t doing it for free. You still haven’t addressed the Michale Mann argument, or the fact that warming isn’t bad, even though there hasn’t been for the last 15 years.

    fracking takes required elements for life out of the ground. Even at such depth, these reserves slowly filter to the surface, and feed our life at the surface and everywhere in between, enriching our soil. By fracking, we cause there to be less organic fundamentals in our chain of osmosis and soak, reducing the sources of energy for life to grow.

    Dear Artist against fracking,

    I am a
    music student , and as such lacking certain educational background. I have a
    concern related to fuel harvesting that I do not see addressed in current
    environmental campaigns. I have conducted minor research of articles and
    publications for information to validate or disprove my argument. My argument
    is that in addition to pollution and surface destruction, fossil fuel
    harvesting is removing an important ecological ingredient. To summarize as
    briefly as possible, there is life living within, and around fossil fuel
    reserves, and although very slow, a complete carbon and hydro-logical cycle.
    Although it may take very long, I believe that fuel harvesting is removing the
    earths ability to rapidly and effectively recover from soil consumption.

    Please
    help me find information to prove or disprove this concern.

      Troy, the fracking industry is hiding behind all their own lies, such as: it will create energy independance for the u.s.; it will NOT create energy independance for us, since about 90 to 95% of whatever they take out of the ground is being exported, and that includes natural gas and shale oil. It will create much needed jobs in this country: it will create 35 permanent jobs in this country, hardly enough to justify destroying the planet.each. It’s very safe, and cant hurt You; it is the most deadly form of energy production ever created;when they frack a well, they first drill down about 1 to 1/2 miles, then they drill 6 to 8 horizontal shafts from the vertical mile and a half deep shaft; then they inject water, loaded with pollutants that are radioactive (which means no matter what they do it can’t be purified) under extreme pressure so that the layers of rock will fracture, releasing the oil or gas. most of this toxic water stays underground, leaking into the aquafiers, and thereby polluting the water, which is what we drink, bath in, water our animals and gardens in. it makes any property above the wells worthless, as it’s unable to sustain any kind of life. not to mention the 30 billion or more gallons of water it takes just to frack ONE WELL. I can’t believe the ignorance of most of the people who’ve commented on here.they have no idea what the hell they’re talking about. go to google and type fracking in the search engine bar and see what you come up with.

    I can’t believe the mean spirited level of comments! Artists that use their notoriety for the common good are to be commended. It brings attention to ISSUES that require exposure & serious public discussion. So many of the ‘comments’ here are baseless name calling, and lead me to believe that the ‘fracking industry’ has paid people to fill up the comments page with vitriol. I applaud the work of Artists against Fracking and the larger environmental movement seeking to find safe, clean ways to address our energy needs while maintaining a healthy planet.

    I would like to invite all Artists against Fracking to the No Fracking Way America’s International Gathering. If you would like to speak, or perform, great. If you like, you may just camp, mingle and have a fun, educational weekend. Please check it out at: http;//nofrackingwayamerica.org
    Hope to see many of you there, or even not realize you were there, which ever you prefer.

    Hmmmmm….8 months later, and still no takers on my offer from the above list of BIG fracking stars. What a total fraud. My advice on real life to the listed elite-

    This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco

    This ain’t no fooling around

    This ain’t no mud club, or C. B. G. B.

    I ain’t got time for that now
    GET REAL!!!!!!!! furl guru

    The real reason for the moritorium is Gov Princess Andy Cuomo likes rubbing elbows with the rich and famous of NYC who are buying up cheap foreclosed land in the Catskills for their playground…

    Many of these artists have money is invested in companies that are active in hydraulic fracturing. I wonder if they spend the money earned from fracking investments on fuel for their private jets?

    Vermont is down to the wire. 3 men called PSB just blessed a pipeline extension. Monkton, Vermont Selectboard made a deal with Canadian owned VT gaz. When New York said no, the paper mill, said, let’s go through the hinterlands of Vermont and under the lake!, Up hill and down in the wetlands. Yes! We will avoid Bill McKibben’s neighborhood and he works for Middlebury College. Next step, Army Corps of Engineers, right of ways, no sweat. When the pipeline is complete, prices will creep up, all Vermont utilities will be owned by Canadians, and there will be a pipeline under Lake Champlain. Please, New York Artists, please come to Vermont and tell these guys what’s wrong with the plan.

    Oh please! When all of these artists and other opponents to energy exploration are sporting a horse and buggy or bicycle as personal transportation everywhere they go, and live in ONE reasonably sized house…lose the cars and modern conveniences of electricity, gas stoves and home heating/cooling, THEN maybe they will have the credibility to talk to the rest of the world about energy related issues. Good grief!

    I’m the ONLY candidate for governor of Pennsylvania intending to ban fracking. Green Party: http://www.facebook.com/glover4governor Need music video to help the campaign go viral via social media, since corporate media blackout has been total. Thanks!
