Bringing together the voices of actors and celebrities such as Ed Begley Jr. and Raphael Sbarge with bloggers and online influencers, BloggersInspiringChange.org and ErieRising.com have created a PSA to educate the public on fracking and how it can harm their communities.
“Fracking is a method of natural gas extraction that has the potential to poison our families. However, few people even know it’s happening, and that means there is something wrong with this situation,” said Lee Allport, creator of BloggersInspiringChange.org.
“I’m so happy to be a part of the initiative,” said Raphael Sbarge, actor and founder of the environmental awareness organization Green Wish. “Fracking is of great concern to those of us in the environmental movement, so it’s so wonderful to take part in a grassroots effort led by many of those most directly affected by the practice. These are the voices that need to be heard.”
Beyond this PSA, BloggersInspiringChange.org and others ask that viewers at home get involved in fighting fracking in their communities by writing their elected officials and supporting organizations like EcoWatch.
