It's called dust. It's plagued homeowners since the invention of homes. Count your blessings, because it was even worse when Americans actually worked the land to feed themselves.

Air quality within the confines of common sense is logical, and I remember the days when the air of Wheeling was sulfurous and filled with coal dust, but that was when Wheeling was an industrial center and prosperous, but today the air is filled the hum of slot machines, the smell of stale beer, and cigarettes, and in close quarters, flatulence. You get a bunch of tree huggers together and they may, in their zeal, outlaw air completely. A good crop of nose hairs lining the anterior nasal passage assist greatly in air purification but remember to keep them neatly trimmed just as ear hair should be neatly trimmed.

Carcinogen means causes cancer..very different from common dust or pollen...Texas is experiencing a soaring cancer rate near wells including in dallas where wells were placed right next to homes. Why? The U of Texas study by Dr. Groat was paid for by frac drillers and he became a that has been exposed people are still dying and sick. what can be done to convict the people who kill by poisoning? Poison one of your neighbors and you will be sentenced for murder..kill thousands and they may name the new cancer clinic after you..IS THIS JUSTICE?

mkhunt “...soaring cancer rate... people are still dying and sick... people who kill by poisoning... sentenced for murder... kill thousands...”

So much strident hyperbole, so little proof. How about the names of the victims of this fracking holocaust, mk? With all the wells already drilled and fracked here, surely you can name even one victim?

Anti-gas loons. Too funny. LOL
