So, this morning, while I'm in the bathroom getting ready for work, I'm listening to the morning show on the community radio station. The guest was some young director of a new organization that was working, more or less in his words, "to increase local awareness of the environmental harm of hydrofracking."
Uhhh ... okay, a group to increase awareness of hydrofracking in a community of passionate environmentalists that happens to be ground zero of the national anti-hydrofracking movement? A place where, on practically every block, you'll find one or more of these signs.
Seriously, there's people in this town that are unaware of hydrofracking?
I mean, really?
I agree with the sentiment, but still, isn't yet another local group working to "increase awareness of hydrofracking" in a community where locals consider it the first, second, and third most important issue sort of like preaching to the choir? You know, kind of like ...
"Allright! We got called to serve in Provo!"
I'm wondering if there's other groups that work to increase awareness of an issue to a community that is already intimately familiar with it.
