Fracking causes earthquakes

This novel, From Thine Own Well, is a response to Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPPA) and the reality that fracking causes earthquakes.

The Peel Watershed is a prisine area in Yukon, Canada. 14% of Yukon drains  and flows into the Beaufort Sea via the Peel and then Mackenzie Rivers. Although there are no communities in the area, it is the traditional territories of four First Nations: The Na-cho Nyak Dun, the Tetlit Gwich’in, the Vuntut Gwitchin and the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in.

The Peel Watershed Planning Commission was created to develop and recommend a draft regional land use plan for the Peel watershed planning region, Their final recommendations were released in July 2011. They recommended protecting the vast majority of the Peel Watershed from development.

The Yukon Government rejected seven years of consultation and study and reversed the decision by the Peel Watershed Planning Commission; effectively opening the majority of the watershed for development.

A subsequent court decision stopped the Yukon Party government in their tracks, striking down the government land use plan .

A major concern is the intended use of fracking extract shale gas. Knowing that fracking causes earthquakes should be enough to curtail the activity. However, this awareness is being ignored.

From Thine Own Well tells a fictional story that includes what could happen in Yukon should the Yukon government prevail and fracking happens in the territory.

Numerous readers have expressed their fear that the imaginary scenarios depicted in the novel are coming to be. This is one time where I pray that life does not imitate art.

The evidence is in. Fracking causes earthquakes.
