Have safely been fracking in Indiana for 60 years....I don't think so, knowing the industry has kept the public from viewing cases sealed when energy companies settled lawsuits with landowners. If it's so safe, let the public review all the cases, here in Indiana, as well as in Tennesee, elsewhere, before destroying more vast tracts of land in the name of the universities god called 'research.'
