More information on health effects - not radical unless you find facts and science to be radical.

@JMEhttp://energy.about.com/od/drilling/a...Here is an answer to your question. Please go do some research on whether the costs in health that are being borne by people all over the Barnett shale are worth trading off for the few hundred dollars that the typical mineral holder receives.

For those of you who think this is not a public health issue here is another link about what is happening this week at another Chesapeake well in Arlington.http://www.texassharon.com/2012/04/05...

For ldog81The problem is the flowback, venting, and emissions from the well site. A majority of wells in this area were tested by TCEQ and found to have higher than permissible levels of benzene - a known carcinogen. A Univ. of Colorado study released last month shoes a much higher risk of cancer amongst people living within half a mile of a drill site.
