Fracking and Turbines increasing air pollution in NC

Dear President Obama, Im Kim Mcall .I live in Hamlet, NC28345.A week ago a bill was signed by the Governor McCory to start fracking in 2015. Then theres 36percent air pollution by Duke Energy which is behind me and my neighbors homes.The citizens here did not know about this fracking bill, the city, county or the state did nothing to notify us until it was passed and signed.Now its all over the news even in the Daily Journal.Since January 2014 I belong to the Concerned Citizens of Richmond County Chapter with Blueridge Enviromenta Defense League. Our chapter tried to get the city, county to let us have a meeting so our community could know about fracking and the turbines increase.We actually had a radio spot last week, all were turned down or dismissed.Where I live is rural , 17 families live out here, yesterday the smoke was thick and this burning smell and when I was taking pictures this strange taste occurred.I have met representatives, lobbyists, Denr in Fayetttville and Raliegh NC. They seem to all be reading off the same reports.You do have to worry if something goes wrong we will take care of the people by the way if you dont allow us to frack on your property we can take it, plus know they are using the word trade secret to hide the chemicals and a person could go to jail. I joined to help.Is there anything you can do .The state has everything lined up and as you probably know we the people are not important , I pray things get better NC is a good place to live .A lot I mean a lot of people do not want this fracking, no matter what our voices were not heard. God bless you and thank you for listening. Kim Mccall
