like i've said many times before, no good will come from this drilling! our state will be raped of it's clean water, healthy streams, native trout, all so out of state companies can profit. this spill is only the beginning. makes me sick, we've learned nothing from the past 100 years of cleaning up the previous mess from logging and strip mining. the state government says "jobs, jobs. jobs. bullshit. sorry, but this crap really burns me up.

odtfish, nice article, my RSS missed that. Scientific American fairly reputable. Sample from the article:

"Gas drilling companies currently dispose of their wastewater in Pennsylvania’s municipal sewage plants, which then discharge it into rivers and streams. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency warns against this form of treatment, because the plants aren’t equipped to remove TDS or any of the chemicals the water may contain. Of even more concern, TDS can disrupt the plants’ treatment of ordinary sewage, including human waste."

For the couple hundred jobs that might be created by this for PA residents be better off just paying those folks not to drill.

COMPLETE MONEY GRAB- NOTHING ELSE

I am not against mining per-se. The problem is it is a scam. If mining just followed the rules we "the state" would be okay.

As far as I understand- these mining companies come in scam out the coal. Meaning not following the rules- the state is not at all equipped to police all of this activity so they are not followed- so this goes on.

Probably does help because your representative just received $2500 contribution for one of these companies- for him to act impartial?? and best intrest of the people. Yea right, if you beleive that I got an old broken St. Croix that is yours for $250.

These companies either leave rusting equipement on the property to claim it is "an active" mine. Therefore- not made to clean it up yet or the more often- declare bankruptcy!!!!!!!!!!

So the companies will get their coal, make a couple of dozen people hundreds of thousands of dollars or possibly millions and the state of PA ( this means you and me) the $500,000,000 price tag to clean up all of this mess!

You know how I came to this conclusion?? History repeats itself.

Again, mioning would be okay if the state could police this effectively and the mining companies do what is right- BUT THEY WONT. BECAUSE THEY NEVER HAVE BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We can hope that when they are through there will be some clean water and a few wild fish for our children and grandchildren. We have not been good keepers of the gifts given to us all.

Wishing and hoping these jerks won't rape the land will not stop the pollution of our waters. Only calls and letters to you representatives and Senators will stop the nonesense. That and a severence tax.

Fast Eddy Rendell won't do the severence tax. I've called my State Rep Tina Pickett 3 times... she has never called me back.

Can you say Kickbacks?

After you waded thru all the Phillies talk > there was this article about the taxing of the Gas companies from this past weekend. Politics!

How Marcellus Shale gas came to be tax-exempt in Pa.

This whole thing makes me want to puke.

Sounds about right to me.

Look at the picture in the previous post. You may not be able to see something so beautiful in the future. I have no impact on the political process in Pennsylvania, being a New Jersey resident. I love fishing in Pennsylvania so much I haven't purchased a NJ license in over 30 years. My Pennsylvania license costs me over sixty bucks per year. I rarely fish stocked streams and never keep a trout. I do support all of the efforts of Pennsylvania to keeps its cold water fisheries intact.

Dear jjsjigs,

I honestly don't see how you can blame this all on Rendell?

In the Northern Tier counties politics on the Township, County and State level are dominated by the Republican Party. If the people wanted a tax on gas producers they could have easily gotten one approved.

Had a tax been approved that would in all likelyhood meant a reduction in the size of their royalty checks, so there wasn't a snowball's chance in you know where of the tax ever coming to pass.

Put the blame where it belongs, thank you.

Regards,
Tim Murphy

I blame all political figures.

I understand that maybe this isnt "Fast Eddies" fault, but all this kickback crap has gone way to far. No government offical should receive any monies other than what we pay them. I cant even believe any of that is legal. What are we thinking?

Omg i feel like im going to scream like Sam Kinison.
