What has happened to American ingenuity? A brave new world is emerging, and I would like to see our nation become a greater part of it. Americans seem unable to envision a world free from the confines of the petro-chemical stranglehold big oil and gas has us held in. We are brainwashed to believe that there is this great inherent risk to improving our lives. Meanwhile we are losing time, stagnated in the belief that we have no other options available. We continue on our path of ruin afraid of the change to come and unable to let go and move forward. The vile money of the petro-chemical industry pollutes our optimism and we continue to cling to 19th century technologies of burning gas and oil.
Our Governor declared that fracking will be banned in New York State. The NYS Environmental study showed fracking to be a dangerous procedure destroying our natural clean water reserves. So why is the industry still buying commercial air time mandating the persistence of its use? I want the governor to ban fracking like he means it. We need to stop the expansion of gas and oil infrastructure and to shut down the trail of pipelines proposed to run through our state. We need to end the expansion and invest in the up and rising clean renewable energy industry. Think of all the jobs we could be creating in recycling, renewables, and clean energy. The United States Federal Government is still locked in the idea of continued use of gas and oil refusing to embrace a new ideology and design a confident new energy plan.
On April 22, 2015 Frack Free Nation and many others will be holding a rally and action at West Capitol Park in Downtown Albany. I encourage all of you to come down for a fun day and music and solidarity. Bring your ideas, solutions, and your personal energy. I believe that we can: end the expansion, create jobs, re-haul the transportation industry, invest in clean renewables, divest funds from old failing industries, become off the grid, produce hydraulic solar fills and more solar energy jobs, end the local foreign owned power company monopoly, create new training programs in the clean energy industry, and ban the dangerous bomb trains passing through our cities and towns! Bravely we can create the energy efficient new world we all want and are waiting to be part of!

The Frack Free F350 Protest Truck was converted to run on Waste Vegetable Oil(WVO)l in 2008… It has 315,000 miles on it, over 150,000 miles On French Fry Grease. That’s right: RENEWABLE FUEL!!! It has served as an educational tool, promoting our campaign while traveling to countless protests over the years and across the entire nation, all the while a conversation starter on transitioning to clean renewable energy and Sustainability.
It also served as a volunteer Water Delivery truck to come to the aid of Dimock Families. Even in a snowstorm, while the rest of the movement was chasing down Lisa Jackson – EPA, in Philly, FrackFreeF350 was competing with Frack Trucks for the road, on bald tires, and almost slid into Dimock Frack Victims Craig and Julie Sautners’ truck. It would have made deliveries all winter if an appeal to BIG ENVIRO for help with tires had been answered.
The Frack Free F350 hit the 300,000 Mile mark on a MATRIOTIC trip out west, delivering 2 Earth First Utah Tar Sands protestors towards their destination, on The 4th of July, 2014 in an act of Independence from the Fossil Fuel Paradigm.
Canola oil, probably GMO, has been tough on the system and at this moment the truck is not running Frack Free… I have had many costly repairs done to the fuel injectors, and what is needed now is to replace the WVO filters and components.
The Truck will continue to be a volunteer, travelling around the Northeast and beyond, but is especially needed right now. To be able to run frack free again, to do organizing work that will help make our campaign for Earth Day 2015 Energize Democracy Climate Justice Rally a success… promoting the energy shift and setting an example, fueling my own activism with clean renewable energy. Any extra funds raised will go towards this end… ensuring Frack Free Nation, with little funds, can organize with heart, an event that will bring a shift that is priceless.
www.Grateful.ROCKS for anything you can do to help us with this campaign… Thank you and Much Love.
Converted at 148,000 miles on the odometer in 2008, The truck has logged over 150,000 miles running on Waste Vegetable Oil., It’s Frack Free, hitting the 300,000 mile mark in July, 2014. The truck has been used for water delivery to victims of fracking in Dimock, PA in 2011 and 2012. It has been featured in parades in Syracuse and Rochester, NY by Abram Loeb, Frack Free New York and Frack Free Nation, as well as at countless protests and rallies over the last 6 years as an educational tool, a rolling billboard for our movement, as well as a conversation ice breaker to inform the public about the dangers of Fracking Fossil Fuels and that there are renewable alternatives.Waste Vegetable Oil fuel is donated by restaurants. To this date, 1/29/15, the Frack Free F350 has used approximately 12,000 gallons of Recycled used oil and had made several trips across the country to wake up people who had never heard of fracking before.
Mission:Education, Awareness, and protests towards the End of Fossil Fuel abuse and the Rape of Mother Earth and Poisoning of our Water of Life.

Contact our regional DEC at: Dep.firstname.lastname@example.org or call them during normal business hours at (716) 851-7000. This proposed landfill expansion is right next to the Cassadaga creek, which supplies millions of gallons of drinking water to Jamestown and the surrounding area daily. This issue has gotten ZERO press here in the local media, and a bunch of us just learned about it TODAY. The D.E.C. Is making some kind of decision on the proposal WEDNESDAY 3/11/15
To Allow One More Fracked Radioactive Methane Gas Pipeline, Storage and Export infrastructure, Gas Fired Electrical Generator, or Bakken Oil Bomb Train through our inner cities and countryside, is to not only endanger our own communities and children’s health, but to be COMPLICIT in the RAPE and POISONING of PA, OH, WV, AR, ND, CO, and Beyond… can you handle that KARMA??? – www.SPEAKINGTRUTHTOPOWER.ROCKS – Abram Loeb-
