Great to hear and see the natural gas fracking trucks rolling in, Chateaugay. With the fracking trucks in the area, property values should go sky high. Hope people get on the band wagon on this. Maybe it will help with some of the high energy prices in the north country. These local companies need to get taken down.
ummmm

All lies and planted by a public relations company hired by a fracking company to get the north country "hicks" on the band wagon.(btw, we're not hicks, but the fracking company things we are.) Fracking has not been approved for Chateauguy.

If it was, the truth is: property values will drop, water quality will drop, the captured gas will have no effect at all on gas prices in the north country at all and impact no local gas companies.

This is the second thread posted under false pretenses. Sort of shows the quality of the people onvolved with fracking and the quality of the idea-neither can stand on their own in the open light of day.

I'm pretty sure Cuomo has not decided on fracking, yet. He's waiting for the impact studies to come back. Do some research, "I smell gas".

There will not be fracking in Franklin County because there is no gas located in our geology. We are not in the shale region.

If there were gas available, Chateaugay would definitely welcome it, then eliminate real estate taxes on the frackers. Look at how they treated the wind turbine company. Sure looks like a payoff to me.

There's a short ad in the beginning, but the video is informative... worthwhile if you haven't seen it yet.

Our drinking water is the best I've ever seen. Let's keep it that way.

Wind turbines and gas fracking are two VERY different things. The former is sustainable and the latter a gang rape of the planet to control a limited commodity, i.e. NOT sustainable.

And YES... these companies have been shut down downstate... nobody wants any of this. So they are putting their greedy little feelers out up here. Given the proximity to the border and potential for such serious environmental destruction I can't believe that any activity like this would ever be permitted.

These weasels want to equate wind energy with this foulness. There is absolutely NO connection. And then they'll talk about what's 'good for the country'. What's good for the country is NOT the rape of the planet. What's good for the country is NOT the total destruction of our most precious resource, our clean, safe, wonderful drinking water, for the LIMITED gain realized by mining a LIMITED resource for a LIMITED time.

It SHOULD be a no- brainer.

Property values going sky high? Right... like they have in West Virginia, huh? Those people can't give their destroyed, toxic properties away. Property values tank in areas where fracking is allowed.

Check it out.

And, frankly, I'd prefer the freaking Monettes. That's how destructive these gas companies are.

Gee... I wonder if the Monettes are behind this crap???
No way

This has got to be one of the dumbest rumors I've heard on here in months.
First of all, there's no shale in this area. It's all pretty much ferrous rock - meaning iron based. Look at Lyon Mt. for heavens sake and Altona, and Irona. Duh! It's all hard stuff. Not shale.
Furthermore, Why on earth would they move into this area when there's still huge proven reserves right where they are?
Who dreams up this Bull anyway.
Get a damn clue people.
This is the very kind of stupidity that gives this area the bad reputation of intelligence that it has.

Then why are the gas companies soliciting the people who own land in the area to sell?

Duh. It's for the GAS LINE. Not fracking. It's the same companies doing the work.
Good Grief people. Get a friggin' clue! There's NO NATURAL GAS under the land here. It's NOT that kind of formation.
Somebody probably saw a truck with some name on it and the word "fracking" and that's how stupid rumors get started.
Good lord I wish to hell people would be a little smarter around here. The ignorance in this area is overwhelming sometimes.

The next thing we'll hear is that they're opening up a coal mine of something equally stupid.

They have not offered to purchase any property. They are purchasing right of ways to construct the pipeline. Actually, they had all of the right of ways purchased and once the pipeline started construction, they sent out payment for the right of ways.

Go to a web site and look up FRACKING. See what it is, what's needed to perform fracking.
In a nutshell, they pump in chemicals and watered down slurries into a well hole under high pressure to see if they can disrupt the shale formations to give up their natural methane gas for use topside. Worse case they upset natural formations of water bearing rock and artesian wells rendering them useless.

Besides ridiculously TOXIC fracking processes ('slurry'... that's rich, most companies refuse to divulge what, exactly, is in this stuff they're forcing into the ground, and they make it sound like some kind of freaking SMOOTHIE. It is NOT) natural gas is incredibly dangerous. There was another explosion just this week in Indiana:

http://news.yahoo.com/indiana-blast-investiga...

Considering how lax things can get around here sometimes, do we really want to take a chance that some absentee landlord is not maintaining their property and equipment properly? It's one thing for a faulty furnace to be hooked up to a fuel tank, quite another to a pressurized, virtually unlimited fuel source. We really don't need any of this, and whichever county officials thought it was even nearly a good idea to build that pipeline need to be held accountable.

I'm all for progress. But this the exact opposite of progress. This is a regression to 19th century technology. Why on earth do you people think this line is being run through our area, and not through Canada? It's a Canadian company, and all. It's because Canada wants NO part of any of it... and there are plenty of those here who don't know what they're dealing with, and yet welcome it with open arms.

Burying ourselves in the past is no way to meet the future. I wonder what it's going to take before we can manage to elect leaders who realize that? A massive explosion at a hospital, or maybe one of the prisons? I suppose we'll see.

I think investing in natural gas in the north country is a good idea. Massena should also keep pushing for a nuclear power plant. The more energy the better.

Nuclear??? Are you crazy? You know what goes into a nuke plant? All systems have a redundant backup. That means all pumps - two of each. All fittings - stainless steel. Cooling water will raise the temperature of the St Lawrence 15 degrees. You'll need a spent fuel pool. Spent fuel rods will be needed to be shipped to Nevada through our local towns.
Better go with wind power. Its renewable.

Wind power is the best.. in Italy they are putting the turbines underneath huge bridges that are elevated, the USa should to that too..fracking will kill the pristineness ( is that even a word?) of your area.. its all we have left for f*ks sake..
