Rep. DeGette voices further concern over anti-abortion bills in House

MSNBC host Chris Matthews this week asked Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, head of the congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, about how the anti-abortion bills introduced as a top priority in the Republican-controlled House might affect Americans should they become law. DeGette said that, from the perspective of women’s health care, the bills are “riddled with little land mines.” Matthews zeroed in on Rep

Talisman Energy unveils mascot, ‘Talisman Terry’, to promote fracking

Talisman Energy unveils mascot, ‘Talisman Terry’, to promote fracking

Kids across America have some tough choices to make this summer, like which Crayola crayon should be used to depict benzene, or diesel fuel, or any of the 29 known human carcinogens used by the natural gas industry in the hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, process. Talisman Terry First there was “Fracking, the movie.” Then came “Fracking, the music video.” Now, courtesy of Talisman Energy, comes “Fracking, the cartoon character,” and “Fracking, the coloring book.” Meet Talisman Terry, the loveable dinosaur who playfully promotes the benefits of a controversial process that’s provided much better access to his liquefied and gasified ancestors, but also comes with significant risks in terms of potential groundwater contamination – either through the fracking process itself (debatable) or all the residual fracking processes such as holding pits that frequently leak into ponds, rivers and streams (not debatable) . But as Mother Jones points out , the coloring book never uses the term “fracking,” which has taken on a negative connotation, or even names the process of hydraulic fracturing, which involves injecting up to a million gallons of water per gas well, mixed with sand and undisclosed chemicals, deep into the earth under very high pressure
