No Fracking Way

Pledge to help make a music video to educate & inspire folks to save NY State from Hydro-fracking! NO FRACKING WAY!


of goal


Am I the only one who thought natural gas was gonna be a good thing? From the blah blah I had heard (from folks like T. Boone Pickens), I thought it was safer and cleaner. A sane bridge to the green technologies of the future.

Well, I was wrong. Way wrong. Now we’re all playin’ catch up. (Still way behind Dick Cheney who saw fit to exempt these gas companies from the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts!)

I wrote No Fracking Way, and recorded it with John Sebastian, Eric Weissberg, and more than a hundred Woodstock, NY citizens singing along on the final choruses.

That’s all been cool and I’ve been asked to sing it all over the place…from fancy schmancy events in New York City, to living rooms in Sullivan County. And the song has been played at rallies from Ireland…all the way to Australia.

But this is a visual society. The only way I know to rally lots of folks fast and free us from this fracking nightmare is with a video. That’s why we want to make a it…to give it away! Give it away on youtube. Free! Make it available as a download. Free!

We recorded the song on our dime, but we just can’t afford to pay for the video. We need your pledge.

In return for your minimum participation, you’ll immediately receive the download of the single. And if you give more, we’ll come up with some stuff you might want. And if there’s something you want that we didn’t think of…I’m sure we can make a deal. We really want to get this done, folks!

One more thing…when making your pledge, it would be great if you would link to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. This will help us reach your friends and followers who might want to join us.

I hope you’ll pledge and join us. Without good drinking water, there is no life as we know it. And I’d miss it, wouldn’t you?
