local hotels jammed with out of state itinerant workers, earthquakes that shake your home, drilling under meander and possibly poisoning our water supply for 100 years. what's not to like?
American Energy Independence is at hand!
OH has been having earthquakes for centuries. The LIBERALS would blame all environmental changes on fracking.
IF, fracking is causing the earthquakes, are Texas/ North Dakota, Oklahoma and the Middle East also having earthquakes??? Or are they drilling different??Also, do the people that are complaining about drilling for oil and gas USE these products, if so, isn't that against what they fighting?
commoncitizen. To answer your question. Yes they are also having earthquakes after Horizontal Hydraulic Fracking.
We should be looking for alternatives to fossil fuels and reducing our dependence. When we truly cut energy dependence the big oil/gas companies loose money. They would rather we think that we need more not less energy. Is your home insulated? Do you reduce your thermostat in winter and raise it in winter if using air conditioning? Just 3 or 4 degrees. Programmable thermostat? Do you layer your clothes rather than increasing the temp in your home? Down comforter or extra blankets at night? Do you caulk and weatherstrip around your windows and doors or replace with energy efficient windows? Is there a blanket on your water heater? Did you reduce the water heater temperature? Energy efficient shower heads? Do you carpool once a week or even once a month? Close your fireplace damper when not in use. Wash only full loads of closes...heck hang our closes out on the line to save more energy. If you are in the market for a brand new car you might consider a hybrid or electric car. Solar panes? Or a solar charger in your sunny window for your cell phone.
Did you know that If every house in America changed ONE light bulb to an energy saving bulb it would save about 600 million in energy costs, enough to power 3 million homes for a year according the the EPA!
Not everyone can do everything, but everyone can do something. Doing the same thing we've always done is not the answer and fracking our land is not an option.
Okay 76 tell us how YOU live off the grid, how many MW are you saving, show us science, not Kumbaya preaching, lead by example. no more ifs................
UticaShale: Everyone can do their part to reduce energy use using simple solutions as I listed above. Change one light bulb to an energy savings bulb and BAM! Saved enough to power 3 million homes! Reducing our demand by 50% is true energy independence.
As long as the oil/gas being drilled is exported and we continue to import I ask you who does this benefit? Follow the money.
@76,Facts, Natural gas in Europe $12 to $14, in Japan $16 to $18, in the great Fracking USA $4. This information is all over the News, read instead of getting indoctrinated. Solar, wind, geothermal, Nulcear, cannot handle our Global consumption. Think now, NG fracking gas, $4 , your heating bill was unbelievably minor this winter. Now lead us by GETTING OFF THE GRID!
Lets burn frackers for fuel.
Anything for "energy independence".
YOU suck, so we turned your hot air into energy independence.
If Utica doesnt care about poisoning my family's water, I dont care about how his family perishes as long as it saves me a dollar.
