We told you yesterday about a vote that was going to take place on whether or not to allow fracking in the Delaware River Basin. In fact, we even called on Joe Biden (Senator Amtrak to some) to stop the whole thing from going down.
Well as it turns out, the vote itself was cancelled since the Governor of Delaware (one of 5 voting parties) came out and said he would vote the measure down. The vote was originally scheduled for the 1,800 seat Patriots Theater in Trenton on Monday morning. According to Protecting Our Waters, “Never has there been a more reasonable outcry. We know we can’t live without clean air, clean water and clean food; we know our grandchildren may need this gas, but we don’t need it. We need to lead our nation away from fossil fuels altogether, and fast. The cancellation of the DRBC meeting is a turning of the wheel of the nation away from that insanity. We are taking the helm. We are going sane.”
So there you have it: The world is not totally made of shit. Have you got some good news? If so, send it to tips[at]philebrity[dot]com with “GOOD MOTHERFUCKING NEWS!” in the subject header — we’d love to hear about it.
