Stand Up

Lennon became interested in hydraulic fracturing last July when gas companies held a meeting to propose destroying land to make room for a pipeline for fracking in Delaware County, N.Y, where his family has had a country home since he was a kid. "We had a town meeting where they are trying to make this happen," he says. "I was terrified. They spoke to these silver-haired old lady farmers and nice old couples with organic farms where I live very rudely, saying we’re going to do this, going to do this, I actually raised my hand and said I thought you said you hadn’t gotten permission yet."
