Re: Fracking Poll...
Overall, I am for deep shale gas extraction.
My biggest concerns when the Marcellus industry first took off were on the waste management side of things. Some of these concerns still exist, but big strides have been made by both regulators and the industry over the last 2 years to improve waste treatment, handling, and disposal procedures.
As with the extraction of any fossil fuels, there will always be some negatives associated with the process. While some residual harms remain present in the Marcellus industry that I believe are legitimate, many of them are short lived or grossly overstated by the media.
