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

We spend 90% of our time in the buildings where we live and work, shop and conduct business, in the structures that keep us warm in winter and cool in summer.

But immense energy is required to source and manufacture building materials, to power construction sites, to maintain and renew the built environment. In 2019, building operations and construction activities together accounted for 38% of global energy-related CO2 emissions, the highest level ever recorded.

Disasters stemming from hazards like floods, wildfires, and disease often garner attention because of their extreme conditions and heavy societal impacts. Although the nature of the damage may vary, major disasters are alike in that socially vulnerable populations often experience the worst repercussions. For example, we saw this following Hurricanes Katrina and Harvey, each of which generated widespread physical damage and outsized impacts to low-income and minority survivors.
