Pennsylvania Republicans just blasted away local control over oil and gas drilling--potentially jeopardizing residential neighborhoods, watersheds, and even school zones.

Although I cannot access the video, I'm all too aware of the insidious deception of fracking laws and the greedy industry involved - I'm sure if these companies found that cyanide laced KoolAid was profitable, they'd vend it in school systems around the country, for all I know they're working on it!!! Thanks Cal

Why does progress and energy always come at the expense of the environment and the life that is there. Are we too primitive, or too greedy? Same thing.

Unfortunately, this is all too true, since I live in Ohio, where we sadly have a 'pro-fracking' governor--Governor Kasich is so pre-occupied with keeping the rich getting richer that he has basically thrown Ohio's environment under the proverbial bus.

These politicians are cracked in the brain. Must be packing in some sort of big bucks into their accounts for signing these types of laws. Otherwise there's no human reason to be allowing this crap. I wish they'd all gather together and jump off the highest mountain and disappear from out Earth. If they aren't going to take care of it, they have no right living here, especially when they hold offices that control these actions. Thansk Cal

Reading this hellish news I can't help getting more and more convinced that a non violent revolution won't help bring our message across!

These companies won't disclose what chemicals that they are injecting into the earth. Some companies see It as an easy way to dispose of pollutants, without taking responsibility.
The only people that suffer are the local people who need to use water.
Who knows what cancers, what mutation, what poisons are being let loose into nature.
There may be a special place in hell for Frackers.

GREED, GREED, GREED..........and they are going to do what they want no matter what people say. They don't care about the health and well being of others. They put something toxic in your back door and then they are gone. This needs to stop, before they kill us all.
