Very informative. The article "We Can Do This Right" is worth reading as are all of them really. We need to become more informed and less misinformed.

Mike Arthur's comments about We Can Do It Right reflect the obvious pro-industry bias of Penn State. He and the university know better than to bite the hands that feed them. I wonder if any of them got a free trip to the Super Bowl? The story about the Commissioners Form Group To Coordinate Water Monitoring -- I am glad that at least in Potter County we are not being completely blinded by all of the money and jobs this dirty industry is promoting. I believe in economic development but I also believe water is more precious than gas.

There is no right way.

If you support hydraulic fracturing You support pumping unknown toxic chemicals into the ground.
You support allowing the toxic brew to return to the surface radioactive.
You support filtering out the solids,diluting it and dumping the radioactive waste water downstream where people use it as drinking water.
