good! send a message to the oil and gas industry! s.crew em! the oil and gas companies havent give 2 cents worth of fraking care about me or my community until they found out their was gas here. now, they want to come here with the promising jobs to get at ouur gas!

when they build all new schools, fix every single pot hole, pay off all the mortgages and car loans of my neighbors in the neighboring 4 counties plus give us all free gas for the next 5 years, fix every single bridge, and pay off all outstanding debt of all the townships and cities inside every county they want to come drill in so they can make more billions of dollars and barely pay a dime of tax money while i pay nearly 25%.....then i might think about letting the oil and gas companies come risk drilling on our land to take our oil and/or gas.

until they do those things they can take their fracking machines and their jobs and go somewhere else to make their billions.

where can I find one of these petitions? Put my name down. 10 years of jobs worth not having good drinkable water? How exactly do you put a price on health?

This fracking is bad news for the people who try to live on or near the land being fracked. Bad water wells, houses being filled with methane to the point of explosion hazard, neuro toxins in the air, poisoning people, live stock, and all wild life. Not to mention the earthquakes from injection wells, for frack waste water.
