Exactly what's funny about chemicals that cause birth defects and disabilities? I guess you don't have any children who struggle with learning disabilities.

You all have nothing better to do than make stupid remarks.

Tell Tim "HIC" Arnold! He's the local "Water Boy". Go to the next BOS meeting and tell your tale of woe. They are very sympathetic people. Hell, I'll bet you'll even catch the ear of the governing "Child Molester". Go get 'em you little tree hugger, you.
Hello? Are you sane? What would they have to do with fracking? You're very peculiar. Why must every post that is put on TOPIX end up with losers like you bringing up Richland Twp. people? Find another hobbie.

Why dont u visit the coal regions and take a first hand look at destruction from coal mining.

I am all for property rights, and support the rights of others to use their property as they see fit.

BUT they do not have the right to destroy or endanger the health, and well being of others in the process.

I imagine you wouldnt mind me blowing my ciggy smoke in your face, would U?

Huh? Who's talking about Coke and Pepsi? Who's talking about the desert?
I'm concerned about my own "backyard" and the beautiful Delaware River. I'm concerned what's going to be seeping into the natural springs and well water in our area.
We don't even know what chemicals the frackers use and they're not required to inform the public.
Are the frackers going to give a list to our water testing facilities that test our drinking water for contaminants?
Will our water facilities, Quakertown Borough and Bucks County Water Authority, have the ability to properly test, monitor, warn and/or remove contaminants that enter our water supply?
How often will those tests be done? Some of the tests we currently have reported to us are only done every few years. A lot can happen to our water supply in a few days or months when fracking retaining tanks crack and leak.
We wonder why so many children are being born with autism, Asperger's, and ADHD in the past 40 years. Do you think it may possibly be due to all the chemicals in our plastics, gasoline additives, and other unsuspected everyday items?
I don't think it's being overly dramatic to be concerned about our freshwater supply. There's only a limited amount and once we've contaminated it all, how do you propose we remove those contaminants?
Cut the drama. The fluid used for fracking is water and sand. Less than 1% is lubricants. Usually something like dish soap. Once the well is drilled there is almost no impact to the environment. You anti-fracking fools are being used by the foreign interests who want to keep us dependent on their oil. It is the same thing they did to nuclear energy in the past. If we get rid of the socialist in the White House and become energy independent, we can return to being the great country we used to be.

It must be energy company stockholders that want to keep sticking their heads in the sand. Here's another link from someone from southwestern PA sharing her fracking nightmare:

Dish soap? Yeah, right.

Back in the olden days they used to say, "write your Congressman/state representative/senators" and sometimes things would actually happen to change for the better but these days they don't care about what the people want.

Now the government representatives and senators are purchased and vote for whatever they've been paid to do in the back rooms (like this is news).

In January, a senior official at the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta declined to say for certain that gas drilling poses a threat to public health, but he added that “site-by-site work is turning up data of concern.”

Like any other boom, the state has to make sure the regulations are being enforced until all the bad apples are out and the capable operations remain. Nuclear power is a good example. All the bad guys are gone and all our power plants are running smoothly. You don't stop fracking and make us subject to all the turban heads.

Well dear what I do to my own body is no ones biz.

The anti-smoking crowd were led to believe the propaganda about 2nd hand smoke,

But u want the folks who can physically see the destruction unfold before their eyes, and say...Oh thats ok, just bring it on..pollute the waters, destroy the environment...we will look the other way.

Bullpoopie!

One need to only go back and research the history of coal mining in our state.

Theres a very bloody history to be found. And much like today it involves rich corp, with assistance from the gov...detroyed the competition.

And what was the region left with...
few companies owning and controlling vast amts of coal rights...
with them being in hoocie with the local gov...
greasing their palms and dupas...
in order to keep out any competition.

Which because of their ties to the public servants, these coal companies were allowed their way.
They were never held responsible for their destruction to the land, air and water quality, highways etc of this region!

And thats the way its going to be with the gas companies...

as far as nuclear...
you cant back up your statement with facts
we all know how it works when you have greedy corrupt people in office who come with a price tag on their head.

U meet their price, u will have your way..
its been that way for 100s of yrs and its still that way...

Beth, check this company out.

Good ole X gov Eddie Rendell, and Obama too...
its their doings.

The chinese gov is tied into this firm.

It began with purchasing coal tracts(schuylkill county) to use in a clean coal burning plant.
Now they have switched their plans to using PA natural gas to produce energy.
Which BTW the coal is probably still be mined and shipped directly to china.
This is the sort of BS that has to stop!
We must protect our natural resources not sell them out to foreigners.
If the land is going to be damaged, I'd prefer we profit directly, not as obama touted the coal plant and exporting of OUR coal as Job creation!!
HUH!???

Fracking has been going on for a long time now. The government nor the frackers have any concern for the damage that occurs. Frackers have not changed the way they operate. They will not make expensive changes in the way they operate unless they are forced to by the authorities - our government. We all know that will not happen.

I agree with Smiley on this one -- it's the coal industry all over again, only worse.
