I’ll admit I don’t totally understand fracking—seems safe enough, given its history—but I just love the name.

I was at a meeting with my state {PA} senator and state congress critter last week and among the topics that were discussed was drilling gas from the Marcellus Shale.

It is a very big and successful business venture here in PA and it exists in most counties.

Our pols haven't yet taxed the well heads {but they will as soon as they can decide on where the money goes}. The local municipalities want the money, the counties want it, the state wants it, but they don't want to kill the golden goose.

My natural gas rates have gone from $13 mcf to $ 6.45 mcf in less than 3 years.

I love the drilling, we have 50,000 new jobs in PA directly related to the shale drilling and heating costs are cut in half, whats not to like?

Oh, I forgot, global warming, dirty water, dirty air and dirty arm pits.
