Halt fracking in Ohio until it is shown to be safe for the environment

Hydraulic fracturing wells (fracking) in Ohio and the resulting waste-water disposal wells, pose a direct and material threat to the interests of the residents of the State. The number of documented spills, blowouts, leaking wells and other accidents is shocking. The environmental and human consequences have been very serious. The wastewater generated by the fracking process has been shown to include carcinogenic, radioactive, flammable and other hazardous elements. The fracking industry cannot guarantee that these processes will not permeate and permanently contaminate our fresh water resources. The time for action is NOW!!!
