    On the eve of a global climate strike and just days before a major United Nations climate summit, more than 450 environmental activists and organizations sent an open letter Thursday to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres urging him to support a global ban on fracking for fossil fuels, highlighting growing concerns about public health and the climate emergency.

    "As you are aware, man made climate change is the biggest and most comprehensive existential threat humanity has ever faced—apart from a nuclear war," the letter reads. "However, at a time when global forces must be combined to combat the foreseeable and enfolding mass extinction of our planet, the oil and gas industry—backed by many irresponsible governments—bets on a fossil fuels extraction technique that will destroy the joint forces of humanity: hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking."

    Organized by the U.S. advocacy group Food & Water Action, its European arm Food & Water Europe, and Pennsylvania-based air quality group the Breathe Project, the letter lays out the oil and gas industry's contributions to methane emissions, how hydraulic fracturing supports the plastics industry, and the environmental, health, and human rights implications of fracking.

    We wrote a letter to the @UN to ask them to finally call to #banfracking everywhere.

    Over 400 people and orgs have signed it, including @MarkRuffalo and Emma Thompson!

    Letter signatory Robert Howarth, a Cornell University professor of ecology and environmental biology whose research on methane leaks has exposed climate impacts of fracking, explained Thursday that "over the past decade, methane levels have been rising rapidly in the atmosphere, contributing significantly to the unprecedented global climate disruption seen in recent years."

    "Over 60 percent of the increased global methane emissions are from the oil and gas industry, and shale gas development in North America is responsible for one-third of the increased emissions from all sources," Howarth said in a statement. "Fracking for shale gas is a climate disaster."

    As actress and U.N. Human Rights Champion Amber Heard put it: "Every well and every pipeline adds more methane and carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and pushes us closer to the edge of the climate cliff. The science demands, and our children demand, a global ban on fracking."

    Biologist Sandra Steingraber, a longtime critic of fracking, pointed out that "a decade ago, when there were only nine scientific studies on the impacts of fracking, some political leaders suggested that fracking might serve as a bridge to a stable climate. Now there are 1,800 studies, and the science is clear."

    "Fracking is making the climate crisis worse," said Steingraber. "Fracking is destroying drinking water and undermining human rights around the world. Fracking is harming health through toxic air pollution and supporting a polluting plastics industry that is killing our oceans. Our planet is on fire, but fracking is not an evacuation bridge nor a fire extinguisher. Fracking is an arsonist that needs to be stopped everywhere and right now."

    On the Eve of Global Climate Strikes and Summit, Celebrities, Advocates and Grassroots Groups Call on UN to Endorse Worldwide Fracking Ban https://www.foodandwatereurope.org/pressreleases/on-the-eve-of-global-climate-strikes-and-summit-celebrities-advocates-and-grassroots-groups-call-on-un-to-endorse-worldwide-fracking-ban/
    9:40 AM - Sep 19, 2019

    Concerned Health Professionals of New York—which Steingraber co-founded—and Physicians for Social Responsibility in June published a comprehensive analysis of nearly 1,500 scientific, government, and media reports detailing the various health and climate consequences of fracking. The analysis noted with alarm that U.S. oil and gas production, backed by President Donald Trump's administration, "has spurred a massive build-out of fracking infrastructure."

    Without increased public opposition and government regulation, that build-out is only expected to continue throughout the United States. A first-of-its-kind report released in June by Food & Water Watch showcased more than 700 recently built or proposed facilities across three industries that benefit from and help fuel the U.S. fracking boom: the petrochemical and plastics industries, gas exporters building liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, and natural gas-fired power plants.

    Wenonah Hauter—founder and executive director of Food & Water Watch, Food & Water Action, and Food & Water Europe—noted in a statement Thursday that U.S. opponents of fracking have had some success in reining in related industries.

    "In more than a decade of fighting fracking in the U.S., we've banned it in multiple states and made great progress elevating the issue globally. But there is much more work to do," she said.

    "The fracking surge in the U.S. has been a boon for the polluting petrochemical industry, which turns fracked gas into plastics. Our planet and our oceans are drowning in plastic and fracking companies are profiting," Hauter added. "This needs to stop once and for all. We need a global ban on fracking."

    The letter to Gutteres makes the case that "directly affected regions and communities all over the world rely on a strong and bold public position of the United Nations on this significant and existential issue." Signatories call on the U.N. chief "to accept this climate champion role" and vocally support a worldwide fracking ban.

    Groups backing the letter include the Break Free From Plastic Movement, Friends of the Earth, Oil Change International, Greenpeace Australia Pacific, Alianza Mexicana contra el Fracking, Support Centre for Land Change South Africa, and SumOfUs. Individuals include activists Karenna Gore, Naomi Klein, and Bill McKibben; human rights attorney Jennifer Robinson; children's singer Raffi; fashion icons Vivienne Westwood and Joe Corré; and actors Emma Thompson and Mark Ruffalo.

    "The climate emergency is a casting call for heroes, and we need everyone to show up," said Ruffalo. "Step one is to stand up and say, loudly and clearly, that there is no place for fracking on a climate-destabilized planet."

  • Paradise
    "Let Paradise, California, be the wakeup call for our entire nation.
    We need a Green New Deal to address the climate crisis.

    Paradise-Is Down A Two-Lane Blacktop
    Narrative Poem By R Andrew Ohge
    As we close in on the 2020 American Political Race-this poem rings more true than it did in 2002 when I first wrote it. If we aren't ready to do what needs to be done to get this for ourselves and children, perhaps we deserve to be serfs in the oligarchy we'll get instead.
    [The Way 'Paradise ' SHOULD Be?]

    First, we were drawn by the land,
    enticed by the promise of freedom…
    fresh faces in new places, where
    we built our farms, our stores, mills
    smithies, with our own dreams
    and our own Hands, paying our way
    with the sweat of our brows,
    leaving our bones and legacies
    as our testimony to those
    who would follow.

    Then, great factories replaced
    the smithies, concrete towers
    supplanted the wheel mills, and
    we were drawn from the land
    to the growing cities for what we
    believed were better dreams,
    brighter futures,…"the good life."

    The farms we left were swallowed
    by corporations, the family
    store was neglected by the lure
    and flash of the corporate chains.

    We were the great middle class,
    living a vision, that for most of us,
    never truly existed, leaving
    nothing, but broken dreams
    as our legacy.

    Times and paradigms pass.
    Some of our small towns just died,
    some were swallowed by the
    circling cities, others are
    barely hanging on, yet,
    here and there, new pioneers
    are returning, bring their
    fresh faces to the old places,
    rediscovering the old ways and
    creating new ones, as America
    finds her roots again.

    Hollywood, Broadway, & Prime Time
    doesn't show our true image.

    Our story isn't on CNN or in USA Today.

    We've journeyed back, off the
    Interstate, rebuilding the
    Courthouse square, starting farms,
    building houses, stores, and families,
    infusing our enterprises with
    faith, truth, love, patriotism, and a
    determination to not allow our
    unique visions or our new freedom
    to ever be swallowed by mere
    sound-bites, glamour, glitz,
    or pulp fiction.

    The America and World
    we must become is the one
    we always knew in our hearts.

    We had only to remember that
    Paradise is down a
    two-lane blacktop,
    where the tree of
    wisdom waits for all
    who prefer revelation
    over information.

    The super highways
    and bypasses, the
    jets, planes, buses,
    and trains can only take you
    by the "American Dream".

    The turn down that two-lane
    is a calculated decision
    to arrive there, a journey
    you take, only if you're
    hungry for a new vision,
    if you're ready to put down
    some new roots, and make
    your own legacy with
    your own hands and the
    sweat of your own brow.

    If you've caught
    that pioneer spirit,
    then here's the place
    to draw close to the tap
    roots of the "American Dream",
    where the juices flow
    strong and rich, near the power,
    right at the source.

    You have truly arrived,
    friend, for you've
    come to a powerful
    place to begin anew,
    where you can find purpose,
    change the landscape, acquire
    wisdom and real estate, create
    your own legacy, where your
    accomplishments and children
    earn respect and receive honor,
    where your babies and bones
    are attended with reverent
    tender care by real peacemakers.

    Oh yes...if you destroy,
    mar, steal, or harm
    those and that which
    is in their care,
    you'll have a fight
    on your hands, the like
    you'll not soon forget.

    No, real peacemakers are
    the architects, the restorers,
    the creators and shapers,the
    healers, the comforters and
    nurturers, the sowers and
    caretakers of paradise.

    They are recreating and
    shaping their future and
    shall be counted blessed.

    No need for a plane, bus,
    or a train to come.

    We're waiting at the
    gates of paradise at the
    end of any two-lane blacktop,
    beckoning, as Lady Liberty
    has for over a century,
    "Send us Your tired, your
    poor, your downtrodden,
    struggling to be free…"

    We'll be waiting.
