John Fenton, Farmer & Rancher
‘Fracking is not just about the environment or water, its human rights. When you take a rural or a remote area and you industrialise it for fracking, it impacts every portion of your life. People pay the ultimate price.’ John Fenton, 2014.
Hear first-hand from US rancher John Fenton about his experiences living and farming surrounded by an unconventional gas field in Pavillion, Wyoming. Companies in Pavillion are fracking for tight gas, which is the same type of gas found in WA’s South West, Mid West and Kimberley regions. John will talk about the devastating impacts of gas activities on local groundwater supplies, farming operations and the health of his family and community.
