I wanted to remind you all about this upcoming webinar on fracking. Will Morgan will discuss what happened to SB820 in the final hours of the legislature and what the next steps are. We’ve heard that the new Mining and Energy Commission plans to meet in mid-August. With that in mind there’s a lot to catch you up on.
Hope you can join us. The link to sign up is below.

Fracking debate simmers in Rockingham. Little is known about the
extent of shale-oil reserves in the Dan River Basin.
State’s new fracking board leans toward drillers. A member of
the newly created board that is supposed to write regulations to
govern natural gas drilling in North Carolina is raising
eyebrows among state environmentalists
LTE: They’ll flee fracking. I am concerned about gas well
drilling and fracking in North Carolina and the possibility that
drinking water aquifers may become compromised as a direct
result of these activities.
LTE: Forced fracking. I am a farmer in Chatham County, and I am
concerned about the impact of Senate Bill 820, the state
fracking bill, on landowners like me.
LTE: Water realities. Our legislators have done it again! Passed
a law for fracking in North Carolina without having all the
information they need to make an informed decision.
LTE: Water folly. Silly me! All this time, I thought I needed to
conserve water. There are so many ads on TV to help us to use
less water, as our resources are “limited.”
LTE: Fracking veto. Kudos to Gov. Beverly Perdue for the courage
to veto legislation paving the way for fracking in North
Carolina. [You may need to register to read this article.]
LTE: Think before fracking. Regarding your July 8 editorial
“Rushing to frack”: Now that the legislature has rammed the
fracking bill into law the good people of Lee, Moore and Chatham
counties will need to make important decisions.
