It has been almost four years since the voters of Denton, Texas won- and then lost it all. As the evidence grows that hydraulic fracturing-"fracking"-contributes to environmental and health catastrophes, and as these catastrophes hurtle us towards collapse, I use a tale from my own life to argue for total neighborhood autonomy and direct democracy. With these tools, we can form a bulwark against the offloading of environmental "externalities" onto communities by distanced politicians and corporate executives who have no real stake in them.
