Bahaha!

"As this type of "clean" thinking is what will ensure people can still live on the earth 100 years from now."

I mean, there's always Mars and the Moon.

But come on. Do you really believe the extraction of natural resources in Appalachia is what will ultimately determine the livability of our planet 100 years from now? Trollslayer is right, terminal craniorectal inversion indeed.

SaveAppalachia, when I fill out the online survey for you, what diseases would you like me to list? I already have you down for fourth-stage pretentiousness and terminal craniorectal inversion...

It seems many in the OV are perfectly fine with "potential" poisoning (though the educated among us know it is far more than a "potential" threat) of our air, water, and land. 100 years from now, people will look back on people like mkhunt (and a few enlightened others) and wish their ancestors were as progressive in ensuring a sustainable earth as this individual. As this type of "clean" thinking is what will ensure people can still live on the earth 100 years from now.

mkhunt, in order to test for those things, there has to be a shred of evidence that a problem even exists. There is zero evidence.

And no, the movie Gasland does not count as evidence.

Sorry, that was BENZENE...Anyone doing any health check is going to find real big problems including the stress from the crime, disasters and deaths. The rise in childhood cancers are also the children of workers exposed on the job..so do not laugh about it...have you looked at the cancers and lung problems from work site exposures?

Adequate testing of the water is needed.looking for benzine, toluene and the long list of known frac chemicals.

I completed the online survey and found it to be very nice. In fact, I thought the survey was so nice I plan to complete it for all the names and addresses in the phone book. Because when it comes to uncontrolled online surveys, the key to obtaining statistically valid, convincing results is a lot of unverified data. Especially unverified data that supports your foregone conclusion.

You all can thank me later. Ok, starting with the A's...

"It is slanted so the health department can slam the gas industry."

I wouldn't have expected any less. What a joke.

I looked at the survey. It is slanted so the health department can slam the gas industry. Wow what a surprise!!! And you MUST give them your address. Yea so the AHs can single out anyone who fails to provide the "right" answers.
