People that don't have drilling near them or don't have anything to lose and everything to gain by supporting drilling will always say it isn't so. Guess what folks. IT IS SO! This nightmare needs to stop.

You are just jealous that the truth about the damages and severe pollution events related to gas drilling are getting out in the public eye.

Make no mistake. The future is CERTAIN! The people of PA are taking back their land from big oil and gas!!!
In the meantime, we are helping and will continue to help the fine people of Ohio do the same. It's a sad day when even the Amish are cashing in and leaving Ohio. Get a grip folks. We cannot and will not let the gas companies destroy our land any longer.

We are coming to Ohio to help you next!

Some of the drill, baby, drill crowd just crack me up. You are all pro-drilling until the thought of having an impoundment pond is slated for your back yard. You make fun of the antis and call them names and insult them on a daily basis. You even go so far as to lie and insist they are well-funded, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Enter impoundment pond issues, especially after all the findings of radiactivity in waste water in PA and now you don't want them. Just view the Go Marcellus website and see the pro-drillers whining away about them. Rather than admit you were wrong on some issues, you are gathering forces to call the Gov and other lawmakers. Ohio has become the toilet of America for drilling wastes and you are just waking up to it. Those bonuses and royalties won't mean diddly when every drop of water in Ohio is polluted and rendered unusable from gas drilling and the associated waste. Maybe those antis were right from the beginning. Maybe you ought to stand up with them from time to time and help them stop the infrastructure and processing plants before you all glow in the dark.

There is absolute prrof that the flowback water is radioactive and has contaminated in PA. One stream is now a radioactive site for at least the next 1600 years. Why on earth would Ohio allow this as well as the trucks hauling to and from these ponds? Why on earth would any trucker want any part of transporting this?

So nice to see a town in Ohio get smart.

This is insanity! Keep them out of your town and don't back down to their bullying! Keep the ban!

Good. Let the taxpayers pay to convert the vehicles. Then let them pay more when we export the gas overseas and our rates skyrocket. Then the taxpayers can pay again to convert them back. Meanwhile, not a drop of water in Ohio will be good to drink because the idiots in charge have to promote even more fracking. Good government plan!

Why would ANYONE be excited that Ohio is now the dumping ground for American shale drilling? You are now the proud recipient of waste that is not only toxic, but RADIOACTIVE!!! In speaking with some workers, the alarms are going off at a higher rate for this type of waste and instead of turning the waste away, they are told to simply turn the alarms off and let the trucks dump this "hot" waste!
