Unfortunately no one will go to prison. Our pollution laws need teeth including the death penalty!

This should merit a firing squad. Our drinking water cannot be replaced. Once it is poisoned, it is forever poisoned. Stop ALL Fracking! Get off oil and gas. Build smarter homes and buildings and produce wind, solar, and hemp.
