Trailer Talk PICNIC Ed Wesely, Dreaming of Super Well Pads Galore...! 10/30/2010
Ed Wesely of the Butterfly Barn in Milanville, PA joins Sabrina at the kitchen table of Trailer Talk and breaks into a spontaneous acappella song about the "invasion happening in his neighborhood" in the Delaware River Basin as landsmen and exploratory natural gas drilling wells try to get a foothold. The PICNIC is an event where Sabrina shares produce from the Foodshed threatened by gas drilling which would turn the agricultural region into an industrial one. Do you know where your food comes from and how important fresh water is for supporting locally grown foods, for maintaining security and economic growth? Sabrina is joined by people who share the homemade foods and talk about water, their community and how it feels to live where what is below our feet is wanted by the gas corporations.
Thanks Ed for bringing comic relief to the day as your voice sang out of the little BeeLine at the Callicoon Farmers Market on November 7, 2010 at the Callicoon Creek Park in Callicoon, NY.

Will natural gas solve our energy problems?

What the industry doesn't mention is the highly controversial practice required to extract the oil known as hydraulic fracturing.
GRITtv producer, Laura Flanders, speaks with Trailer Talk's Sabrina Artel along with filmmaker Josh Fox, EarthJustice Managing Attorney Deborah Goldberg, and Natural Resources Defense Council Attorney Kate Sinding on why hydraulic fracturing poses a real threat to water supplies in the United States and the New York city watershed in particular.
