The Other Side of the News - 2/5/14 - DANGERS OF FRACKING
ON OUR HEALTH
w/ Bob Fitrakis and Carolyn Harding
THE SCARY TRUTH ABOUT OHIO and the NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY
Ohio has become the Radioactive Waste Dump for the Oil and Gas Industry. Ohio imports the waste that PA and WV regulations reject. Approximately 8 billion gallons of toxic, radioactive waste has been injected underground in Ohio over the last 30 years, over half coming from out of state. Ohio is poised to receive 19 million cubic feet of solid radioactive shale rock waste into our landfills.
FRACK WASTE IS RADIOACTIVE
and is known to contain radioactive metals such as Radium 228, 238U, and Radium 226, all are naturally occurring in shale rock. Radium 226 is a known carcinogen, with a direct link to many forms of cancer including bone and breast cancer.
ALL LANDFILLS LEAK
The public is concerned about the radioactive elements that leak from landfills into the groundwater and contaminate the water supply.
THE PUBLIC DESERVES TO KNOW
The Ohio EPA approved a permit to allow the processing of Frack Waste at the Ohio Soil Recycling Co., located on the banks of Alum Creek, a Columbus Watershed.This facility is next to Alum Creek Greenway Bike Trail and 2.2 miles from Bexley and less than 5 miles from the Ohio State House.
Morrow County, upstream of Franklin County, and part of the Columbus Area Watershed, currently has 13 active injection wells, with one under construction. Injection wells, are depositories for thousands of gallons of toxic, radioactive liquid Shale Gas waste, forced under high pressure down a pipe and into the earth, to leak, migrate and seep into Ohio’s water supply and soil.

Columbus Community Bill of Rights
The organizers of RadioactiveWasteAlert.org and concerned Columbus area citizens, have worked together with the legal non-profit organization, Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (celdf.org), to create the Columbus Community Bill of Rights.
This rights-based Amendment to the Charter (constitution) of the City of Columbus will ensure the unalienable rights of Columbus residents for local Self Governance (Local Control), Pure Water, Clean Air and Safe Soil. Rights for natural communities and ecosystems within the city, peaceful enjoyment of home, freedom from toxic trespass, and the right to a sustainable energy future.
This ballot initiative for the City of Columbus, when enough signatures of Columbus voters are gathered, will be taken to the people for a city wide vote, and made into law.
