  • Hope and Change LOL

    I’d like to go to these people’s houses and see all the products they use on a daily basis that are a result of employing the very industries they protest. I know it likely wouldn’t change their minds, so it would be for my own amusement.

    I just found out that not only have gas companies been polluting aquifers, but so have other industries. Over here in Williamsport, Textron Lycoming polluted the city’s well field. The area is a superfund site and no one is warning the public.
