If your Rep. Garth Everett has his way, this sentence "Pennsylvania natural diversity inventory clearances, which identify aquatic and land species that may be endangered and provides a series of checks and balances" is in real danger of being a false statement. Rep. Everett just voted last week, in favor of gutting the Threatened and Endanger Species Act. Contact him today day and tell him "Don't you dare!" geverett at pahousegop**** or call him at (717) 787-5270. Stand up for those who can't.

There's virtually nothing in this article about which Cowden is not lying--bald-facedly. From the number of real jobs (PA ranks 49th in the U.S. for job creation in 2012), to the environmental regulations written by the industry for the industry (gutting the endangered species act, making PennDot funding dependent on opening state forest to fracking, forced pooling--and the list goes on and on), for the vast majority of affected Pennsylvanians fracking is nothing but a disaster. Moreover, the union representing the faculty at Mansfield has taken a clear position on fracking--particularly on university campuses within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. You can find that story at TheWrench: "Education Matters More than Money." To pitch these jobs to college students as a replacement for education is a crime.

Many of these jobs require an education for your information and this industry is probably over regulated, or regulated more than any other industry out there. Some of the industries own regulations are stronger than the governments. Wendy and Mismac, can you prove anything? Maybe a ground animal or salamander used to live where your house is built,your car pollutes, what do you burn for heating your house? Where does this all end you two? Just trying to understand your concerns and only here how bad the industry is.

Wendy and MissMac are hysteria mongers who hope to prey on the ill-informed, while telling themselves how brilliant they are.

Erik, based on other articles and comments involving the drilling industry (gas and oil) I would have to agree. All while enjoying the benefits of oil and gas exploration and production. They could not function or have the great lives they have without the products that come from this activity and fail to recognize it.
