An earthquake in NYC? What the frack?
Truth be told, I didn’t even feel the earthquake that hit New York City on August 23…but I sure felt the (corporate and social) media aftershocks.
Missing from almost all post-quake reportage was any mention of hydraulic fracturing in the Marcellus Shale watershed—a black shale formation extending deep underground from Ohio and West Virginia northeast into Pennsylvania and southern New York.
MZ event note:
Some of my photographs and paintings will be featured (and sold) at a vegan art show in NYC. The work will be up from Sept. 4 to Oct. 28 at the Jackson Hall Art Gallery, 446 West 36th St., between 9th & 10th Aves.
