      Benton, PA

 Please help us convey our concerns about Natural Gas Production in the Marcellus Shale Play in Pennsylvania. Our Incoming Governor,Tom Corbett, has proposed opening more State Forest land to drilling and Pipline construction, even as he also deny's the need to "burden" the industry with a severance tax, as every other State with similar activity has.  We believe there should be greater protection for our communities, and further studies of the overall, long term impact on our beautiful State.

      This is being sold as a way to add jobs. It's really a snow job: the oil industry is the only winner here. When it's all over, the state of PA will be a toxic waste zone, with no drinkable water, and property values in the basement.

      Visit www.pennenvironment.org for more reasons why everyone should sign this petition! Select the issues tab to learn more. Many thanks to all that sign and/or join...help to stop yet another movement by our politicians to dirty our drinking water and the air we breathe! Sadly, I fear that this is becoming another example of how government is all about "special interest groups" not "we the people".

      It is time we move away from all fossil fuels.

      The record is already clear: Fracking can not be done without unintended destruction of the environment and water in particular. The trade off of forests and water for gas is simply not worth it.
