We Need Strong Hydraulic Fracturing Safeguards

      Procious, WV

Over the past few years, we've seen the industry claim state regulations are more than enough to protect communities but with every passing day, we are seeing more and more accidents. With strong federal safeguards, I will be better protected from the dangers of such a rogue industry.

Just recently, earthquakes in northeast Ohio prompted the delay of four waste water wells because of its possible link to hydraulic fracturing. With Pennsylvania not able to handle the capacity of waste water being produced, shipping it to Ohio, and well operators injecting the contaminated water in wells throughout West Virginia, it is causing earthquakes; it is clear the states cannot handle this alone and need your help.

      The fossil fuel industries, Gas and Coal, having been preying on the poverty of West Virginia for over a century now. These companies think if they keep the people of WV poor and uneducated no one will stand against them! Well they do not know the mind of any West Virginian! We value our water supply! We like looking out and looking up at our mountains! My friends,uneducated does not mean stupid!!! Albert Einstein did not finish school and West Virginians don't have to be genius' to know their water supply is being contaminated! These industries think that West Virginians will stand by their political parties while our State turns into a dried up, over mined, toxic oozing sore on this earth. So, let us follow our country roads all the way to Washington D.C. and show them that Mountaineers don't stand by, we stand up! Stand up for those who do not have the money and voice to stand against these tycoons. Stand up for West Virginia's wild and wonderful life, stand up for the rivers, steams, and natural springs, stand up for the mountains, stand up for Our Home "Almost Heaven" West Virginia!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless the U.S.A. Irene Shamblin-Shiner (an old West Virginian Mountaineer)
