IN TODAY'S RADIO REPORT: America's first high-speed rail line breaks ground in CA; Environment to lose another champion in the Senate; More tank problems one year after WV toxic chemical spill.
While we've heard pro-fracking propaganda before from the Obama administration, many Americans have had enough of it and I'm one of them. In 2008, I voted for 'Hope and Change,' but we are not getting the change we hoped for.

Ultimately, the drillers' dreams of fracking New York succumbed to the growing mountain of proof that this dangerous process causes birth defects and respiratory illness, while polluting our air and drinking water with carcinogens like benzene and formaldehyde.
The cost of building new conventional generators is astronomical. If you get a jump on this and find a way to make it profitable, fields of opportunity will open as other coal-fired plants shut down. And you just might blaze a trail toward a carbon-neutral future.
