Some environmental activists were upset with me and Faith in Place for supporting “responsible fracking” rather than a full moratorium. We were, according to them, “selling out.” No, we were taking the opportunity to make a real and meaningful step to limit fracking. Social change doesn’t mean getting everything you want, but instead finding meaningful, achievable steps. And the work is always one step at a time. For if all environmentalists had outright opposed any kind of fracking, there would have been no bill whatsoever. Fortunately, we now have guidelines for all current fracking efforts. It is a good first step.
