    Michael: Nice sarcasm there. And with the NWPassage open, we’ll be able to search for and prove the opening at the top of the world (hollow earth theory), as all the water will be sucked intoa whirlpool and deposited in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Doesn’t Corbett know that smoking hydrocarbons is bad for you?

    It boils down to this. Pennsylvania’s state constitution has this provision in Article I:
    Natural Resources and the Public Estate
    Section 27.
    The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people.

    Dude, if you want to have someone do something, you don’t start by calling them names and utterly undermining your own credibility. Nobody would watch your video after that opening.

    This country can rather easily be energy-independent. However, to intelligent people, that means things like responsible nuclear power, solar, wind and biodiesel; to you, it means “blow up brown people and steal their oil”.

    Two gigantic problems with fracking that go beyond the usual drooling, hysterical rhetoric from either side:

    1. How can voters or property owners whose water supply is located in the Marcellus Shale (like me) know for certain what the danger is if the energy companies refuse to divulge the chemicals they’re pumping into the ground? The gas companies insist that these are “trade secrets.” If you leave it up to our imagination to decide whether or not your industry is toxic or dangerous many of us might look to things like the fertilizer plant in West as an indication of “BACK OFF GUBMINT WE KNOW WHAT WE’RE DOING.”

    2. Energy companies have a long history of disingenuousness, greed and destruction of the environment. They bully politicians with ease (even “dem lib” Gov. Cuomo) and get ridiculous taxpayer subsidies to drill on the promise of being job creators or providing cheap energy. No rational person who owns property on top of the shale should allow this to happen for any reason other than your own foolish, individual greed.

    We already have cases of fracking in Ohio causing earthquakes. When the earth shifts, the underground rock can move enough to release the gases/chemicals/whatever they put down the wells. And the casing is only as good as the manufacturer. We also have incidents of subpar casing causing leaks. Since we don’t know what they’re using, we cannot prepare for consequences. Maybe our two Ms-es would like to live near Youngstown, where a fracking waste disposal operator has been shut down and is on trial for dumping waste into the water supply. This industry will not police its own, will not tell us what they’re using, anmd “assures” us it’s safe.
