"Drilling for natural gas on state forest lands hinges on ensuring roper protection of natural habitat and recreational aspects of those areas." This sentence is an oximoron.

Tourism or Fracking. You can't have both.

The Pennsylvania Constitution is not muddled:

"The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania's public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people." - Article 1, Section 27, Pennsylvania Constitution

Having worked within this industry for the last two years, I have a hard time believing anything that the oil and gas companies say. The normal route is to tell subs or the public what they need to in order to get their way and then do whatever they wish. This leaves people who depended on what they were told hanging out in the wind. I want clean air and, above all, I want a continuing clean water supply. The choice is clear unless money is all that matters. I have been and continue to look to get out of this industry as soon as possible.

There is nothing muddled here. Corbett and Yaw both are benefiting financially from this gas industry, and both are doing anything they are told by the industry in return. We need to toss out this whole industry, they are nothing but parasites and thieves.
