How on Earth can you even think of allowing Franking to be done here? I am dismayed, and wonder that the hell people are thinking? You will ruin this natural resource.

Thanks for a thorough post on the pros and cons of the fracking industry and possible natural gas exports. Despite the possible benefits to a local economy, I believe that the natural gas industry, using the hydraulic fracturing technology, just isn't tightly enough regulated to avoid very negative environmental consequences. For more info on fracking, please see -- http://www.greenmomster.org/2012/07/join-frack-attack-rally.html

Thanks, Green Momster! Always great to hear from you.

Fracking is the new poison for the bay. How could anyone justify allowing this irresponsible practice within any watershed not just the Chesapeake after reviewing the impact this has? Long term impact horrific and irreversible long after that check is deposited into bank

More education needs to be directed to the older/retired group of property owners as they may not have an accurate understanding of this horrible practice, only a lump sum of money for family. Allow everyone to understand how harmful fracking is so that they know the long term blight and can argue the ignorance of this practice the next time someone promises money to whore a family property name. That is no legacy.
