|Tags:||Alberta EnCana gas company Jessica Ernst Truth and Consequences of Fracking|
“We are fortunate that Jessica Ernst is taking the time from her difficult and painful situation to share her cautionary story with us,” said Maura Stephens, a member of two of the sponsoring grassroots groups. “Even as a person who works in the industry, she had her water poisoned. And she’s been treated abominably by the corporation that poisoned it and the regulatory agencies that are supposed to protect people from such assault.”
Alberta has been hit hard by fracking. Industry, the regulators and Alberta government try hard to silence Ernst. She is visiting New York to help residents understand the dire consequences of fracking from the “ruthlessly cruel” industry before it begins in the state. Ernst sent comments and provided extensive documentation to the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation during its public comment period last year.
