A powerful post from Another Monkey – Please read it.
I love the gas industry tv commercial where the woman is traveling up a well as if in a stainless steel and glass elevator. So clean and so slick. I guess we will see truck loads of well dressed women heading down our roads soon.
I have an old friend up north who recently emailed me about his experiences with gas drilling. Here is the sad email. I took out their names at their request:
“Herb. Thanks for the info. (Wife) and I have spent the last 2 years educating ourselves about this issue. We are at ground zero in Dimock and are surrounded by gas wells being drilled. What we have learned so far is scary and our actual experiences dealing with this has been terrible. The beautiful area I have lived in for the last 35 years is being butchered. Many of my neighbor’s water supplies have already been polluted. It is a shame that our government would, in these days and times, allow such environmental exploitation all for the sake of money.
But I have to let you know of my situation – (wife) and I held out from signing a gas lease as long as we could, due to our environmental concerns. However, when we realized all our neighbors had signed and we were surrounded by leased land – we finally gave in and signed. Now seeing what has happened I would gladly return the money if they would pack up and leave. I consider it dirty money. I believe the gas company’s tactic was to offer people money to get their foothold and then they come in and do their thing. (friend’s name)”
See you tonight.
