Thanks to PA Dairy Farmers, NC Allies

Thanks to all who made last week’s tour of PA dairy farmers Carol French and Carolyn Knapp a big success, generating a “buzz” all the way up to their home state!

Thanks to organizations which co-sponsored the tour or specific events: Deep River Clean Water Society, NC Policy Watch and Save Our Sandhills. And thanks to all who got the word out about events in Raleigh, Southern Pines and Durham, provided refreshments and made Carol and Carolyn welcome, expressed their support and asked great questions. They emailed that they have lots of good memories from their NC visit and saw our state at its most beautiful. It’s “healing,” writes Carolyn, “to open the eyes of people before the natural gas industry knocks on their door.”

In the news:
“Two dairy farmers from Pennsylvania put a face on the international fracking debate Thursday by describing the personal, community and business risks they say are associated with the controversial natural gas extraction method.” -Ted Natt, The Pilot, “Effects Of Fracking Laid Out: Pa. Farmers Speak During SP Meeting” (Nov. 12)

“Geologists say six North Carolina counties have the potential for natural gas production, with the best prospects in Lee County. Getting that gas, using a process called fracking, has divided some local landowners and lawmakers.” –WRAL, “NC landowners, lawmakers divided over fracking” (Nov. 11)
