Where's the evidence fracking is safe?

October 04, 2012

The people of Garrett and Allegany counties should know that fracking is giving them a chance to have flammable drinking water, and that benzene is causing their cancers.

Del. Wendell R. Beitzel must have forgotten his biology background to side with corporate interests.

Legislation in Pennsylvania prevents physicians from talking with their patients who are injured by fracking contamination.

If fracking is so great, why have we seen no evidence of this since its invention in 1947? To Delegate Beitzel I say: Evidence trumps rhetoric every time.
