Seems like we in NY will never see the end to this horror. We're getting tired but still fighting after almost 7 years!

I did watch Gasland II and the most amazing thing I got from it is that if we used the wind power we could use, we could take care of the world's power needs ten times over. Add solar power, geothermal, etc. and we'd be set for sure. We do not need gas - or oil - or coal. So, why do we keep poisoning the earth? Could it be because the gas and oil companies own Congress (as one member admitted)...

If you look very carefully of where the gas wells are in Pennsylvania they are all in the northern constituencies and not in the south where all the rich people live. It would be the same for NY.

So happy there are people of this earth that will fight for their cause. Their cause effects every living being and plant on this earth so I wish them luck and I'll support them with petitions. Keep up the good work ladies. You are making a difference. The more fracking is exposed, the more people will jump on the bandwagon.
