There is a law in this land that say you and I can have children. There is another law that says you cannot destroy your children. There is also a law that says man can buy his own land. But there ought to be a law that says a man cannot destroy the land, because he only owns in temporarily.

Let's talk science---yes, science. Duke University recently completed an investigation into well drilling and "fracking" in Pennsylvania. No oil or gas company paid for this investigation or influenced it. It has been "peer reviewed." I spoke to the professor who led the investigation. RESULTS: NO fracking chemicals were found in over 100 water wells that were tested all over PA. ZERO! Some water wells have methane in them, but they had methane before the horizontal fracking was started and some have had methane for decades. Check with Carroll County officials, such as the health dept., and you will find NO reports from Carroll County residents of any natural gas (methane) in water wells. Don't take my word for it---call them and ask. So, I have been in a Carroll County oil - gas unit for over 30 years and I have had ZERO gas in my water well. BOTTOM LINE: "Fracking" has been done for a very long time and caused NO problems here in Carroll County. So, let's use science to evaluate well drilling and "fracking", not hysteria and ignorance. AND, I agree with "HaHa." The U.S. has a fantastic opportunity to use the natural resources we have underground (usually a mile down) to get off foreign oil. Why would we want to give money to some people in the Middle-East who hate us and want to kill us?

Morning Glory, some of these wells are over a mile deep and all of them have incorporated safety procedures with equipment to seal off any contamination to well water. Did you watch to see any company employees drink any water? Were you ever on their site?

Your government inspectors didn't do their job in the Gulf of Mexico haha. Besides this drilling process is much safer and easier to control.

Haha has a know nothing mentality. The drilling companies know if they mess up they're out of business so that's why they are taking precausions to peserve the wells from contamination.

american you havent been right about anything till now.your right the inspectors didnt do their job because the bush govt did away with the regulations on deep water did that work out??OH and those were YOUR PEOPLE the criminals bush chenney that gave them permission to ruin the enviorment not my people. but thanks for pointing out that the republican president allowed one of the biggest enviormental disasters of our time BECAUSE OF DEREGULATION. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ACKNOWLEDGMENT ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DEREGULATE OR HAVE NO REGULATIONS.if they did it there they will try it here.once again you assume or speculate its safe you dont really guessing you have never seen a drill collar let alone the material they use to frack a well.

Regulations were not done away with by anybody in respect to the Gulf spill. It was during this Presidents watch, so it's his fault. There was a larger oil spill back in the 60's by the Mexican government in the Gulf. Your logic, with the current President, is that he is a war criminal also. Killing innocent people in Afganistan.
The drill collar works, that's all that matters.

Through the use of wind turbines, solar panels and American oil and gas, we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil and gas. It is time to keep our money home and invest in our own people. We need to increase research on electric cars, alternative heat and energy sources, and safe oil and gas production. We need more American students attending universities studying engineering and science. We need to find jobs for Americans, in these fields and others created by fracing/drilling, research, and service industries where they eat, shop and attend local public schools.

vet i like how you can completly ignore a little about what chenney did before you speak. and sadly enough obama probably is considered a war criminal."killing innocent people in afganistan?? you mean the 30 or 40 he killed with drones?? at least he isnt the mass murderer bush was.he didnt drop 5,000lb bombs into the middle of heavily populated towns killing thousands.AND at least obama hasnt lost over 4,200 and wounded over 32,000 soldiers at a cost of over $3,000,000,000,000.its a shame that the usa has stooped to the level of much for your day in court.more proof the patriot act is doing away with our constitution and bill of rights.assinations invasions how unamerican.

Your venting is incoherent and just plain goofy. Back to strong drilling results. It will help those who own the land and get the royalties.

I don't want them fracking around here. More of a gut feeling then anything else. Because truth be told, there's so many conflicting opinions swirling about, I don't know what to believe.
And I suppose, that's kinda the point. Why take the chance?
But if they do start leasing off the village land and allowing drilling, maybe someone would like to buy my house. Maybe a nice oil/gas worker. Or someone who took the money because it was oh, so easy. They might want to invest in a nice little brick house in a friendly community with "crazy" water.
I don't want to live in a place where all they care about is the money. I don't want to live in a place where the most basic thing in life -- water -- is so disregarded.
No, you can't power your big, old monster truck with water. But gas from one of those fracking wells ain't gonna quench your thirst.
It's just going to keep you up at night, wishing you had just said no.

Haha doesn't know jack. Methane has been the only gas showing up in water wells. Not natural gas.
