I'm pro drilling, but people better realize that these companies have no emotional attachment to the land or need to preserve it. They've destroyed plenty of acres, forests, streams and ponds. They want what is in the ground bad enough to pay for it and we should make then pay for it. The "get out of their way" attitude is dumb.

Weasel words. The first thing I try to pick out after reading a statement or speech.

" ...is turning its attention to drilling companies that 'MAY' want to withdraw water..."

""WE DON'T KNOW how many are doing it, BUT WE KNOW they are taking it out," he said."

Uh huh.

"I realize many people think this is the gretest thing in the world. It may take some years but you will be proven wrong. "

I can't agree. Fracking has been used for decades.

"They can drain the creeks, kill the fish all for no cost to them. "

With all the trouble about dumping salt water recently, do you really think a company is going to risk major damage to the ecosystem, and the fallout from such?

I've seen them pumping out in the Dungannon area. They don't block the stream and leave a good percentage of water going down stream. They slowly collect the water until they have enough. Has PA complained about dried up streams and dead fish from lack of water? No, this is just another angle that the anti's use to attack the process. As with all the othr made up bs, we live this thing called fracking and the scare tactics have already fallen apart. Move on and scare uninformed people somewhere else. We are onto your game.

The fact these companies would have to pay for water from East Liverpool or Buckeye Water District should be a huge red flag to anyone intrested in keeping our water in our creeks. They can drain the creeks, kill the fish all for no cost to them. This should also tell you these companies will NEVER clean the recovered water when they are done like they are supposed to. I realize many people think this is the gretest thing in the world. It may take some years but you will be proven wrong.
