Pennsylvania...You Have a Gas Problem

by Hannah Miller

I'm sorry to be the one that brings this up, but... Pennsylvania: You have a gas problem.

I'm probably not the only one that's noticed the layer of rock a mile deep in the earth under you, filled with little bubbles of....well, to put it politely, "natural gas."

And I'm probably not the only one that's noticed that there are multiple gas companies with heavy pollution records drilling mile-deep holes to crack that rock open with chemicals that cause nerve damage and leukemia and kidney damage...which are now beginning to leak into waterways that all run right to Philly.

I'm sorry. But it's a problem, and we can't really ignore it anymore.
It's not just the pollution... it's also the quantity. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection expects that over the next 10 years, the state will be punctured with 30,000 of these unsightly drill wells, which each suck 4 million gallons of water from our rivers to let the gas out!

It's too much for those of us who live on the Delaware. Especially since Congress exempted the gas drillers from the Clean Water Act in 2005 after being lobbied from Dick Cheney...and not to mention the Clean Air Act...

Can you just stop for a little while? There might be a way to let all that methane out safely. But right now, fracking is polluting our water supply so bad that we can set it on fire....and this gas problem, if not properly regulated, is going to do long-term damage to all the other industries Pennsylvania holds dear: agriculture, tourism, hiking and fishing, dairy, etc. More info here. http://www.landandwater.org/index.html

Penn Action and Conservation PA are co-sponsoring a statewide conference in Harrisburg on Saturday, October 16 to talk about what to do about our gas problem. We will come up with strategies on how ensure the voices of real people are heard in the debate - not just gas companies.
