This is funny coming from Krancer since he voted NOT to have drilling in his backyard.

Really read this article and look at what this guy is saying out of both sides of his mouth. For instance, it is getting safer. I was lead to believe it was safe from the beginning. If these guys are plucking holes in the ground it better darn well be safe from the beginning, not experimenting around until they get it safe. This is like an admission that they made mistakes in the past.

It is slowing down, maybe Krancer doesnt read the news, but nat gas prices are extremely low, a lot of people already got laid off and most people in the industry are hopping job to job with which ever company has work at the time.

Why is the head of DEP promoting the industry?? Should he be more concerned about the environment??

Never ceases to amaze me with some of the debate on this page. Like the safety deal. Do you think your car is safe now? How bout aircraft? Good enough then, no need to continue to try to improve further. How bout if they would have stopped improvement on them in the 60's? Good enough for you, right? Wake up, the more anything is done the more improvements will be made.

"As time goes on, we're finding that most gas and oil companies are generally abiding by the law." Not a very high bar in terms of compliance. And,the quote shows that compliance was even lower to start with. I doubt many ideas, investments, projects etc. could be sold with the quote used above.

Yes I did sell my house 4 days ago for Cash. I got rid of my realtor and sold it myself. The buyers made me add my Baseline Water Tests to the disclosure or they were not going to buy it. It's over, thanks for asking.
