Please, please talk about the downsides of this project when reporting on it. The methods being proposed to extract the gas from the shale are highly controversial and pose huge potential dangers. "Fracturing" involves the use of a combination of toxic chemicals and tons of fresh water, which ends up being a poisonous waste product, for which NO reasonable solution has yet been proposed. In others areas (Texas, Colorado and Wyoming), groundwater has been contaminated, streams and rivers toxified, and the local ecology destroyed. I also think that the viewers would be interested in knowing that the biggest profiteer in the Marcellus project would be Dick Cheney's own Halliburton.
