Please ensure rules and regulations are in place before any fracking is allowed, If the companies fail to follow the rules, then shut them down and forbid them from working in our state. Fines are not going to prevent accidents or environmental disasters. If there are any fines the lowest amount of a fine should be at least One Million dollars per day.

Ultra Christian Right Wingers will not listen. They are so full of the Holy Spirit that they cannot see past the dollar signs.

They believe in ignoring potential environmental problems because their church and their "job creators" are ordained by the Almighty and anything that is seen as environmentally friendly is seen as liberal and of course of the Devil.

It is not possible to have any kind of reasonable conversation with these folks. To them the world is going to end any minute and they will be taken to heaven and screw the rest of us.

But thanks for trying.
