Things to think about:

1. Can we extract non-renewable fossil fuels without the process of hydraulic fracturing? 2. Can oil and gas companies make a fracking fluid that does not pollute the land, air and water? 3. Should we hault all fracking operations until we can find a way to frack without polluting our environment? 4. Should "We the People" have a direct say in what our public lands are used for, and be able to vote on whether private industries can use our lands for energy development, providing them with high profits and us with energy and the environmental costs of cleaning degraded lands, water and air?

whgfeeling;

Try to make your point relevant... It isn't the workers causing the damage. This mess is caused by the Oil, Gas & Coal Company Owners...

Go to the top, The Owners, For G-d's sake...That's where the damage is done...

These workers you make fun of, are just doing their job, like their counterparts, The Coal Miners... They have no control..

Make fun of the people who have control-- The Owners...

Perfect venue; Don't need fracking to stop--just adhere to the rules and common safety sense of your engineers.....

COLORADO'S FLOOD WATERS, OIL AND GAS DON'T MIX:

You've all probably heard about the flooding on Colorado's Front Range. What is now making the news are the oil and fracking fluid spills associated with the flooding.

Here's another example of why this industry needs to be forced to change its ways, and stop fracking on all lands until this process uses NON-TOXIC fluids.

Where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom.

Once again, no injuries. No damage. But plenty of babble about death and destruction from the loons. yawn...

One upon a time, the rich industrialists came to Appalachia and exploited it and the people living there to extract coal. But they at least had enough of an altruistic bent to invest something back into the communities and create downstream industries so the communities could prosper.

This latest group of Brooklyn based ripoff artists is having better luck using their control of government, education, and the media to convince the sheeple that we don't need the jobs energy exploitation could create. They just turn the public against each other by using their tried and true divide and conquer strategy.

Conservative sheeple are told about open markets, free markets, free trade and the need for global competition. Liberal sheeple are told about fair markets, global responsibilities, fair trade, and the need to have open borders.

The losers in this mass scam act are the American people. The winners the rich investors who's real goal is resource exploitation with cheap labor.

Any volunteer fireman that responds to a gas fire is a fool. Let the companies foot the bill and put their people in harm's way. I am glad no one was hurt. But, as to the plant an ALL Nat. Gas well related property........ Burn Baby, Burn.

cowtransplant, the effect of CO2 atmosphere is identical to the effect of your posts on the OV.

I'll bet y'all miss those clean industries like steel mills, coal mines and chemical processing plants.

I mean, there was ZERO pollution, ZERO crime, ZERO unemployment and ZERO noise until natural gas drilling came to town!

CO2 does NOT burn, it PUTS OUT flame.

But of course it is the Great Satin, 400 ppm = 0.04% of the atmosphere.

Methan is 23 as potent a greenhouse gas as Plant Food.

OOPS!

"The only winners here are the Global Oil, Gas and Coal Companies.."

How about the millions of Americans employed by these industries???

Liberals constantly complain about cheap goods from overseas yet do everything possible to increase the cost of goods made (our used to be) domestically. Between unions and the "cost" of doing business, is it any wonder so much business has left!

wvhoopie; Your Quote... "The oil and gas industries just march through our beautiful state like a bull through a china shop. No respect to us at all."

And--I quite agree! No respect... Just need to make more money...

I have been concerned about how fracking has impacted the quality of life of the citizens of West Virginia... And--will continue to downgrade the quality of life to WV citizens...

The only winners here are the Global Oil, Gas and Coal Companies..

There is a solution to this: We don't need processing plants or gas transmission pipelines. All we need are collection and transmission facilities for nice, safe inert Carbon Dioxide.

Yes, by all means and it only costs $250/Mcf.

this was seen and heard many miles away. We keep asking for help from regulatory agencies. The town of New Martinsville is right to the south, below a massive dam.what is being done? There is a giant fire with black smoke that is located at the gravel and sand area and it was burning for days last week, showering the town with black particulate debris. If you want to visit please notice the toxic chemical area right next to the first suburb...greed and speed and nobody seems to care.

There is a solution to this: We don't need processing plants or gas transmission pipelines. All we need are collection and transmission facilities for nice, safe inert Carbon Dioxide. The CO2 can be piped to wherever methane is wanted, and, then, fed to a device invented at Penn State University. Coupled with a few photoelectric cells or maybe a small windmill generator - it needs a few, maybe three, volts to operate - it will convert CO2 and Water, both of which are non-flammable, into substitute natural gas Methane. See: "US Patent 8,440,438 - Electromethanogenic Reactor and Processes for Methane Production; 2013; Penn State Research Foundation; Biological processes for producing methane gas ... from carbon dioxide are provided ... which include providing an electromethanogenic reactor (as described). Electrons and carbon dioxide are provided to the ... methanogenic microorganisms (in the reactor). The methanogenic microorganisms reduce the carbon dioxide to produce methane ga

hoopie, still enjoying that cheap natural gas in your furnace every winter? And with your Bankrupter in Chief busy forcing coal-fired power plants out of business all your cheap electrical power will come from natural gas, too. The shame from your hypocrisy must be awful. Start walking the talk and we'll LOL less at your death and destruction babble.

This is becoming the norm for our area. Fires from gas wells and storage, leaks in pipelines, spills of frack fluid into our streams and rivers. Roads torn up, truck accidents by drillers, law suits over everything imaginable. We look at these stories almost every day. The oil and gas industries just march through our beautiful state like a bull through a china shop. No respect to us at all.
