For all the negative people out there that dont have a clue and should not believe everything they read....Every established gas well that you see in Ohio has been fracked at one time or another and I dont hear of any water well issues or enviromental issues and some of these wells are 50 yrs old. Fracking has been around for a very long time and the issues that have made the paper about water wells being destroyed is due to neglegence with the company that drilled the well,not the fracking process. And for those that think we dont need natural gas and oil...how will you heat your home when its cold outside and can you really aford a $40,000 electric car. Finally an economic break for the Ohio Valley and these people cant stand prosperity. I work in the industry and Im all for alternative energy but at what cost and who can afford it. Dont forget, Natural gas is one of the cleanest energy resources we have and I'm sure that all the negative people out there still drive a car or suv that runs on gasoline. When will people look at the big picture and realize we are funding the 3rd world countries and they would love nothing more than to wipe us off the map by handcuffing us to rely on their resources and not our own.
