Ma'am do you ride a bike for transportation? I'm assuming you've never ridden in a plane either. And you use solar panels to heat your home. And you only eat food that you yourself have grown.

Get educated before you mouth off ignorant comments in the Utica newspaper.

I don't read Utica newspapers so I can't comment on the article. But please explain why (assuming it was in the article) riding a bicycle, having home solar panels and growning your own food is uneducated? Please explain that.

I assume what the OP meant was concerning hydrofracking letter to the editor and the fact that the method itself hasn't been proven to contaminate our drinking water. Because it hasn't. The fracturing is occurring thousands of feet of solid rock below the water table. Frankly, unless these opponents never use oil or gas in their everyday lives they shouldn't be so high and mighty. Not to mention the propoganda against fracking has resulted in the loss of alot of potenial job creation and economic growth in NYS. But that's ok. These liberals are going to save the state with grand new plans of better time and concrete ideas and casinos! Good luck to them.

...every drop of fresh water the gas industry uses for fracking (high volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing)is contaminated with fracturing fluids. Every drop is too contaminated to ever be used for drinking water again. It takes about 5 million gallons of fresh water to frack a well.(thousands of wells are planned for NY) About 1/2 of the fracturing fluid (water and chemicals)is left behind in the gas well. But the industry tells us don't worry - we have those steel casings to protect this contaminated brew from reaching other water sources. What are these steel casing actually protecting our water sources from if fracking fluids are so safe? The other 1/2 of the fracturing fluid comes up to the surface along with the gas. Where does that contaminated by-product go? Sent to deep injections wells for disposal. All the water is lost from our drinking water supply. And heaven help us if there is ever a spill or an accident and this contaminated, toxic radioactive waste water reaches an aquifer.
