I have to say that I was a big proponent of fracking when I started my "Drilling Quietly Going ON..."
Thread. I admit to too much excitememt about the new technology and how we were gonna really make big dents into the world supply of nat gas. Since Ive been involved in several investigations Ive seen that lots o mistakes have been made nd these are being done by bout 1/3 of the companies who seem to hve a "desperado" attitude.
I am still big fan of the farmerman rule that says
"IF IT WASNT FOR RULES ND REGS NO INDUSTRY WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING"
Here we have yet another example of cowboy mentality nd **** the people. Pennsylvania is already hosed from all the acid mine water dumping into about 25% of our pristine streams. Weve got dead streams and rivers left over from the coal barons of the 1800's and 1900's and now weve got the potential for the same thing.
Pa now has an opportunity to rectify this and to get rid of a governor whose deeply in the pockets of the gas drillers.
Our present governor made a dumass statement that, if we charge a fee to the drillers to serve as Environmental Contingency and to aid the school funds, this would "drive the drillers away"
Who the hell is he kidding?
That's been the attitude with his regime, its been turn his back on industrial pollution and screw the citizens
