JAMES TAYLOR: Appears in Anti-Fracking TV Ad
James Taylor is proving that Carolina is still on his mind. The North Carolina-raised Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has become a face of the anti-fracking movement — by appearing in a TV spot in opposition to the hydraulic extraction process for natural gas.
Paid for by the The Natural Resources Defence Council, the commercial hit the airwaves last Thursday and is expected to run at least two weeks. According to the Associated Press, North Carolina’s state legislature is considering rules to regulate fracking.
