I'm reminded of Pennsylvanias greedy lumber barrons of long ago. They clear cut our forests and sent all of the lumber through Williamsport on the Susquehanna. Question?? Is there any evidence that this really happened?? Anybody??
It took several generations to clear up that mess and will most likely take longer to clear up the current raping of the land. Plus, this time around they're also polluting the ground water big time.

I was raised around here. It does bring money to the comunity and for the people that are allowing the Gas people to Drill on their land they are making alot of money. And no Iam not one of the people. So I guess it comes down to that they wouldnt be here if the people with the land didnt give them the rights to drill.....

thats right its their choice to make the decision for drilling on their own land....and yes there is money to be made, and spent, it helps the local businesses. the people working here, have hired hundreds of local people, and also spend their money here, they buy gas for the equipment and cars, they food shop, buy clothing. the small businesses havent done so good in years.

drill baby drill
its funny all the anti drillers keep screaming that it is poising the creeks and aquifers and guess what check the records there is not one aquifer with a problem..........they drill so far below the aquaifers, the drill is incased so it doesnt effect anything around it. so please stop spreading your propaganda...not everybody is stupid enough to believe everything they hear is gossip or bullcrap billboards put up by anti drillers, did the research and it is lies...
