Fracking here we come. Kasich will be approving poisoning the water supply. Actually having your sink faucet on fire is kind of cool.

Uh, this is NOT a good idea at all. Drilling through the Marcellus Shale contaminates drinking water.

It would also be an added bonus if it rained or snowed $100-dollar bills from the skies, too!

I am glad to see the HUGE differance John Kasich has toward fixing the Ohio budget and jobs crisis.
The liberals still thing we can have electric cars and use solar and wind for all energy.
The fact is we are 20-30 years out before those technologies will be cost effective and enough in design to get us off other forms of energy.
Shale oil is another option for America along with natural gas.

Kasich needs to be reminded of the poison chemicals that are being spilled into the ground and waters in the state of Pennsylvania. People are are being poisoned and the cancer rate is shooting up where these companies are tapping into the natural gas. The quick fix & money isn't worth anything if our water supplies are poisoned and people start dying. His EPA appointments tells us this man is more concerned about the big companies' profits than the residents of Ohio.

Also there are pockets of radiation around gas wells that contaminate the land. A county that is near my folks family farm in Kentucky was drilled for gas and they all now have city water. The fields were so contaminated that cattle that grazed looked like they had cancer .. very skinny and sickly. It was the infamous Ashland Oil that was notorious for rape plundering and pilaging Kentucky farmers. So I would beware folks.

Kasich acts like he discovered this. It's only been in the news for two years and rail lines are being rebuilt to bring equipment to these fields. A rail line is being relocated in Youngstown to better a serve a steel mill that makes pipe for natural gas transmission.....and all of this has happened before Kasich has even taken the oath.

Just his way of creating jobs and contaminating the water supply. This guy is a grade A goon. Maybe they can start drilling at his house and see how he likes it.

Ohio is going to get exactly what they voted for - a guy who will run the state into the ground for his big business buddies.

Right now gas companies are getting into trouble for poisoning people's water by using a method known as fracturing which releases toxins into the water system. I hope people who live near these gas deposits are involved enough to make sure that our new governor isn't so business pleasing that he lets the gas companies sacrifice other peoples' health.

30 years ago, they were saying we should not invest in solar and wind power because it wouldn't come to fruition soon enough. Just because no one owns the sun is no reason to keep repeating that mantra for the rest of your life.
Might as well contaminate

Might as well contaminate Ohio water now and thank Kasich and his new EPA staff. If your not familiar with how the gas is removed, it's an unhealthy method due to all the chemicals used to get the gas out of the rock.
