toolboy- I have repeatedly said that I am not against the businesses of oil and gas, along with mining. As long as they do it safely and responsibly. That mean NOT taking short cuts and contaminating air and water. Got it? Of course you don't! You just sit on here and lie and insult others. It's all you have.

I do have to say that the wellsburg water had to be contaminated back when they[fracking trucks from brownlee's property] were dumping in the river directly at the water treatment plant.the middle school would have been one of the first buildings to receive this many trucks that were in and out of there daily for at least a two month period leaves no doubt that we got a good dose of it.somebody authorized this.

So as I predicted the price has more than DOUBLED in the past 2 years which now makes GASOLINE the new winner in affordable vehicle fuel!

So much for wasting money converting to compressed natural gas!

Sorry but I told you so!!!

The greenies are ok with wind mill farms killing 100s of thousands of batsn birds and yes including the BALD EAGLE amoung others and Washington quietly just gave another 10 year exemption from liabilities to these companies to protect them from law suits. If that was an oil or gas co. you would hear the screaming from the greenies in Europe but since its "clean" energy its ok. Dont worry about the bats they wiped out colonies of or the eagles ,owls,and birds and let me know when you find a way to deal with the left over material from the reactor plants that put of heat ever after they are "spent rods" and cant make electric power any more as of now they are stored on site so how close to a "clean" power plant to live by? Rather plant trees than wait 100s of thousands of years for the rods to be "safe"

The loons weren't able to prove groundwater contamination. Then they weren't able to prove radiation. So now they're claiming fracking causes damage from earthquakes. Too funny. What's next, loons? Fracking causes meteor impacts? LOL

Look out! Who are these people? fossil is a limited liability company so it is difficult to find important information but they were selling off Wyoming assets in 2011 as federal investigations into contamination and deaths and illness made the national news. Have they like Chesapeake borrowed money from Chinese banks? Are they related by contractual means with other companies from Texas? Who are these people and why do we know so little about them? The ranchers out West are protecting their herds..what are we willing to do here?
