Comments Off on Polish farmers and families blockaded Chevron frackers for 400 days

In July, Chevron abandoned its plans to drill for gas in Zurawlow, Poland, after farmers and families from Zurawlow (and four nearby villages) blockaded a proposed shale drilling site with tractors and other pastoral machinery for 400 days. Now, that victory is inspiring other Poles to fight back against the fracked gas industry.

If you’ve checked Facebook in the past week or so you probably know that the Keystone XL Pipeline bill  failed in the Senate, despite aggressive attempts by Mary Landrieu (D-LA) to ensure its passing. But what does this mean for the United States? Does it mean we won’t have all those promised  jobs ? Will it lead us to living in caves because of a lack of energy ? Are we more vulnerable to ebola, AIDS, asthma, and heart disease? No. It just means we’ve shown that the environmental movement is actually going somewhat forward now .
