Time Magazine Article Looks At Pros & Cons Of Marcellus Drilling

The Gas Dilemma

By Bryan Walsh
Time Magazine

For more than a decade, Bonnie Burnett and her husband Truman have owned a second home in the hilly farmland of Bradford County, in northeastern Pennsylvania. It was a getaway for the Burnetts (who live three hours to the south, in Stroudsburg), a place to take their grandchildren for a swim in the wooded pond that lies just a few steps from their front door. "It used to be heaven here," says Bonnie. "We were going to move here to live." More...

These type of life changing storys that are happening to good people are happening every day.
The same storys come to light after wind turbines are installed close to peoples homes, but yet no lesson is being learned and the local townships are passing regulations allowing these turbines close to peoples homes that are destroying lives and dreams as we speak. Money is the root to this evil. The main difference is that natural gas actully works where wind turbines don't!!

Great! More flatlanders who are ready to retire to move here and try to change everything. Too bad for them the local folks need to make a living too. Get over it & go cry somewhere else.

Wind turbines thread jack? I can do that.

I could point out all the places in Europe (a place where half the population doesn't pride itself on stupidity) where wind helps meet a large portion of their power demands...

Or I could just point to Meyersdale, PA. Where their wind farm has been operating for EIGHT YEARS.

But yeah, you were saying? "something something wind doesn't work because some website or tv show told me so. So I'm going to yell my ignorance to the world..."

please enlighten us further.

It's not as good as hydro, but it works.
But I'm sure Jesus will make sure we have fossil fuels until the rapture so no point in discussing it right?

To 8:42 poster;

You said,among other things,

"I could point out all the places in Europe (a place where half the population doesn't pride itself on stupidity) where wind helps meet a large portion of their power demands... "

You should study what you are saying before you say it!
Europe is going broke investing in wind and they have the highest utility bills in the world and the most brown outs because of wind dependents of any place in the world.

Also, Yes Meyersdale has been operating for 8 years but the amount of power produced is so little and so undependable that the coal power plants continue to operate at 100% just to keep the lights on. So, what is the point of these useless machines in the first place?

It is saddening to read that a family has lost a dream home ... a little empathy please. Stories like this happen when bad leases are signed, when the company owning the lease has a poor safety record, or hires sub-contractors with sub-par skills. Even if you don't do it, your neighbor could, and yes "it" does flow down hill. Balance the scale by doing business with a company with a proven record. And will accidents occur? Yes. Just be ready. Know your options. Have a plan.
Even when the majority benefits, there will always be some who don't. Figure out a way to minimize that number.
