Apparently there is a supply of gas that can be explored in Gem county, Idaho. It didn't take long for the United Nations front groups to get involved. Meetings are being held with the zoning commission to possible deter this exploration.
A website has been created, responsible party unknown, laying out the case for the dangers of fracking. Here is the website's fear mongering concerns to get people all upset.
Now one of the websites they list for information is Earthworks. On its website Earthworks states it evolved from the Mineral Policy Center, a UN NGO. Earthworks advisory council includes Philip Hocker who founded the Mineral Policy Center; John Leshy who worked for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a UN NGO; J. Michael McCloskey who serves as a chairman for the Sierra Club, a UN NGO; and Thomas A. Troyer, Esq. and is is a director of the NRDC, previously noted as a UN NGO. How much more up close and personal can you get with the UN?
Here is a letter from the EPA to the NRDC expressing hope for their support and participation in their study of water and fracking. A Mineral Policy Center member, Alexandria Shultz, served on the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology in 2003. In 2012 the Chamber of Commerce "requests that EPA abandon its estimated of emissions resulting from the completion of unconventional natural gaswells, claiming, on the basis of two industry reports, that EPA’s figures are inaccurate, and that EPA’s figures are improperly influencing ongoing rule makings and academic debates". Notice at the top of this letter the number of UN NGOs listed as the EPA's defense of their data, including the NRDC and Earthworks.
Well, let's look at some possibly more objective information related to fracking.

One last side note. Previously noted in the 10/28/13 post under Corporatism, Walmart, one of Agenda 21's goals is for businesses to "encourage" other businesses to be sustainable, the example used was Walmart and its insistence that their suppliers be more sustainable. Well, Earthworks does the same and is pressuring Cost-Co to change, a true UN trooper.
The residents of Gem County are encouraged to research the source of the negative information and different sources of information regarding fracking before any hasty decisions are made.
