Artists Against Fracking

The artists of Artists Against Fracking worked together to create this music video for Don’t Frack My Mother, Sean Lennon’s very own anti-fracking anthem. This is the perfect time to celebrate our progress. In case you missed it, the New York State Assembly passed a two-year moratorium on fracking in New York. But this is also the perfect time to keep the pressure up! The bill’s not a done deal. It still has to pass the NY Senate and then get signed into law by Governor Cuomo. 

Help us spread this video on Twitter.  Here's a suggested tweet:

Hey, @NYGovCuomo, sing along with us: #DontFrackMyMother! Watch the video and pass it on: http://ecowatch.com/2013/dont-frack-my-mother/ via @EcoWatch @aafracking

Over six gallons of water are required to produce one gallon of wine. "Irrigation, sprays, and frost protection all [used in winemaking] require a lot of water," explained winemaker and sommelier Keith Wallace, who's also a professor and the founder of the Wine School of Philadelphia, the largest independent wine school in the U.S. And water waste is just the start of the climate-ruining inefficiencies commonplace in the wine industry. Sustainably speaking, climate change could be problematic for your favorite glass of wine.
