We will not stand for this deeply irresponsible behaviour on the part of those who are empowered to legislate for us. Our water, our fields, our air and our very seismic stability are at stake.Indeed, we can see the US is starting to ripple and sink, what with all those fracked wells. Fields are poisoned for miles around every fracked well, while US water has become undrinkable everywhere there has been fracking.
By implication their air is "at stake", but I have no idea at all what if anything Vanessa means by this. It sounds scary, though.
Could that be the point?
