Fwd: Fracking and its consequences
--------- Forwarded message ---------
From: John H.
The attached op-ed from the Washington Observer-Reporter contains more confirming information about the dilatory effects of fracking on the health of all of us living in this region. Western Pennsylvania is now a hot-spot for many different types of cancer. Washington and Greene Counties now have the highest incidence of air pollution in the state by a factor of almost six, most of which is directly from fracking. It's time we begin raising our voices in protest to the powers that be in Harrisburg to get some real and effective regulations and controls in place to control this noxious pollution. Yes, these types of controls will increase the cost of fracking production, but that is a very small price to pay for reducing the health consequences we all now have to live (and die) with.
