I want to know why Gov K is holding up the relase of 2012 production data. It should have been out on 2 Apr. The data is there at the state and I wonder who is getting insider use of it and for what benefit?

This group--Ctr,Health,Environment, Justice--they organize protests, they also preach social justice and partner with the Sierra Club, They are 100% against Fracking,

Incidentally, Ohio has performed well in protecting its citizens and fining lawbreakers.

They also produce propaganda for use by Schools, brain washing little school children.

We can have all the laws and regulations we want but we NEED PROACTIVE ENFORCEMENT OF THOSE LAWS AND REGS.Without a apolitical agency making sure enforcement is 100% we will never stop illegal activities of waste dumping.

Pooh, how could you say such things about our Gubner? (sarcasm) I'm learning that some don't get the sarcasm, so I have to tell them. Gubner Scrotumhead will make heads role baby. He is a Large Scrotumhead and in charge. I'm guessing somebody is getting a teabagging and Scrotumhead will demand they like it.

When the money is right, being stringent usually takes a back seat. But it doesn't matter whether it's the feds or state ODNR, money talks. Anytime you have someone in a position that they aren't qualified for, we pay for it one way or the other. Seems like most things are based on politics and friendships, instead of knowledge. Until that mindset changes, nothing will ever change but the players. Our elected politicians are the root of most of our problems today. They decide what they think is good or bad for us. Usually it benefits them or a special interests of theirs. That's whats wrong in our society today.

I guess the idea here is that it would probably take too much money for a small company to buy off the feds(ahem . . . campaign contributions????).

"Obama's EPA" Gee, maybe you're right, the Commander in Thief may indeed "own" the EPA, thank you for your wisdom OR lack of.

Obama's EPA must go after these Ohio scumbag fracking waste disposers like D&L Energy & Lupo with a passion. We need that type of action to protect us and our environment. It's obvious the ODNR isn't up to the job.

"McCorkle has said that despite the incidents, Ohio operates with the most stringent oil and gas industry regulations in the country, even surpassing federal regulations."

Well, they obviously aren't stringent enough.
