This is a video from my new show, Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.
In this video, I present the first half of my interview with Sue Lyons, author of the resolution calling for a moratorium on fracking that was recently formally adopted as the official position of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. In this first half of the interview, Sue talks about how she got interested in fracking, the process of getting the resolution adopted, her experience as a member of the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee, the progressive caucus of the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee, and how the natural gas industry misleads the public about fracking.
