AUG 26, 2013 – JTMP has been wroking hard with Americans Against Fracking, Energy-Reality.org and others to fight Fracking, and this gave us a chance to check out the great new book "Energy" this weekend put out by the Post Carbon Institute and Watershed Media; and we are impressed by this coffee-table tome.

APR 22, 2013 – Yoko Ono has been hard at work in the anti-fracking activist world recently. She formed "Artists Against Fracking", which JTMP is proud to be a part of; and now Yoko has written a post for HuffPo and is saying, "Let's Give Clean Water a Chance". Using a variation of her and her husband's "Give Peace a Chance" slogan, she has written a blog abut the recent Riverkeeper's Fisherman's Ball and to protest fracking:
Yoko Ono: "I was proud to be a part of the gathering of hundreds of clean water supporters at the recent Riverkeeper's Fishermen's Ball…It was a true celebration of the power of the grassroots movement for clean water and sustainable energy. People all over New York have channeled that understanding into action. Because of this grassroots resurgence, we have seen amazing things transpire. And it is not about to stop…The anti-fracking movement is an organic one, driven by people's experiences and valid concerns about having a harmful and contaminating practice invade their land, homes and communities. For me, it started when gas companies visited my town in upstate New York to pitch a natural gas pipeline that would provide infrastructure for future fracking…I did not want to see my land destroyed."
