Noted. Also makes me wonder why the land belonging to private owners isn't considered as important as federal park lands. Fracking is bad, and it should be considered bad under all circumstances, in all locations.

These industries are our deadly foes - we've got to stop them - they are destroying the Earth -- they are being radically greedy at the expense of our lives - take heed!

Fracking is no good, and should be stopped right away and everywhere, not just near national parks.

Is there no part of the world we will leave Un-raped? How about we stop developing oil and gas altogether and invest in renewable energy?!

"...said NPCA Vice President for the Center for Park Research Jim Nations. “Our research revealed that some national parks are already in peril. Unless we take quick action, air, water, and wildlife will experience permanent harm in other national parks as well.”
High Volume Hydraulic Fracking is harmful and dangerous to ALL living things! The best "quick action" to take is to stop it!

If I had the power there would be NO FRACKING in USA.

I stand corrected John G - I made the assumption that when I mention fracking - I'm speaking of HVHF - I shouldn't do so - thanks for the correction! We do indeed have to stop both the Tar Sands - Keystone XL pipeline, and the pipelines that are designated for NYC, as well as HVHF planned for NY State - I have and will persist in en every effort to prevent this craziness - if I must get arrested - so be it! Civil disobedience is at times listened to -- Sandra Steingraber was arrested 2 weeks ago and spent 10 days in jail to prevent Igerny from its construction of a refinery on Lake Seneca -- I hope many more will follow her example!

Noted and article read with dismay. All the money being used for Hydraulic Fracking should be going towards discovering alternative safe fuels.
Thank You Cal.

Our PARKS are treasured and sacred to all who enjoy getting away. Lately, it's all up for GRABS! I truly feel for the younger generation that is left with NADA. Sadly Noted CAL!

“We should not gamble with the health of our national parks,” Nations said. “Oil and gas resources can be accessed without sacrificing our most important natural areas and most revered historic places.” But also should say ...PROTECT OUR PLANET, because other countries are being destroyed to provide the oil and gas you need!
Thank you.
