The Deep River Basin area has the highest population density of any region in North America
that has been proposed for fracking, including tens of thousands of private well users. More
people would be impacted by NC gas development than in states like WY, TX and PA.

Gas fracking is not for the benefit of most Americans, it is being shipped to Asia for a higher price, fracking is permanent destruction of land and water.

Fracking is an insanely dangerous enterprise to both human life and the life of all things living. The methodologies currently being used are ten steps ahead of any legislative oversight that might curtail those methods that are so costly to all of our futures. They are ramped up on immediate profit with no concern for the long term costs, regardless of what their 'representatives' internal to that market may spew to the general public ( e.g. "It's fine. It's safe. Trust us. We're a private enterprise making great gains financially. OF COURSE we care about you!" ). In a time where people are scrabbling for work - any work - many companies are taking advantage of a disadvantaged work force. The injury rate of employees in that industry say it all. And that, added to the already known and very serious consequences to the environment make the election of officials who are 'business friendly' that much more short-sighted. "Follow the money" is good advice in the case of fracking projects in this state.
