It's crazy to not even mention the harmful effects of "fracking" to PA citizens and our air and water. We shouldn't be talking about taxing it, we should be ENDING it!

Gov. Corbett pushing hard for "fracking" for natural gas in our state when there are so many signs that it is seriously destructive is impeachably irresponsible. The New York Times found internal documents from the EPA that "show that the dangers to the environment and health are greater than previously understood." :

Corbetts refusal to place a moratorium on fracking at least until the question of its safety is resolved shows that he does not care about the risks to PA citizens and the environment. Please sign this petition to impeach Gov. Corbett and pass on to every PA resident you know!
