AN older Article but even MORE relevant now.

The Clean Water Action Group in Pennsylvania has recently discovered that despite more than one thousand environmental violations, 9 out of 10 natural gas companies operating in the Keystone State didn’t pay a single penny in fines.

I guess that’s what happens when special interests, and not those responsible for protecting our water and air, run the show.

This is nothing new. Although kudos to Clean Water Action for calling this one out.

The group’s new report found that in 2011, 43 different natural gas drilling companies were cited 1,192 times for operating activities that violated various environmental laws. 63% of those violations resulted in no enforcement action, and 93% resulted in no fines issued.

The following Groups are DIRECTLY responsible for keeping  FRACKING going Strong in PA. If I made ANY MISTAKES THEY ARE ACCIDENTAL(but I doubt it)

Gas Lease Group  Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association  Mt. Jackson / Ohioville Landowners Group Mt. Jackson Group 2   Luzerne County Landowners  SWRTPG–South West Ross Twp Property Group 4-County Gas/Oil Leasing Group  The following are in Mercer County, operating under the same name—Mt. Jackson Group 2 Mt. Jackson Group 3  Mt. Jackson Group 4 / Stoneboro Group  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC   4-County Gas/Oil Leasing Group   Casselman Valley Landowners Group  Greenfield Gas Group   Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association    Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance  The Friendsville Group   Twin Tiers Landowner Coalition  Appalachian Landowners’ Coalition  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC  Venango County Landowners Group  Northwest Pennsylvania Land Owner Group, LLC  (Warren)  Monyok Valley Landowner’s Group  Scenery Hill Land Owners Group  Lower Wayne Property Owners Alliance   Northeast Pennsylvania Landowners Association  Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance  Ligonier Landowners  Greenfield Gas Group   Noxen Area Gas Group   Wyoming County Landowners   These are the people who care more about $$$$$$$$  than CLEAN WATER.    If you are a member of any of the above, don’t step one foot near me.  

     I am a little bit taken back by the ignorance and pathetic reality that you would sell your clean mountain and farm land for the toxic excuse of FRACKING. WAS that $6.ooo an acre  +++++ Royalties that are half of what you expected really worth it??  In the segment I’ll talk a bit about dry wells,  UNDRINKABLE WATER  and more……..

BARIUM AND BARIUM COMPOUNDS

Good evening readers, a few posts back I asked you to be patient with the EPA site. I take that back. It has no patience for you so why should you??? I can simply say that we as Pennsylvanians have noone to blame but ourselves for not stopping the mess that has bestaken us. I listed for you a page. When you go to that page, as is many Government pages , it is “File Not Found”, Discouraging to say the least. But if you navigate through the barbaric stumbles and stops they try to put upon you, you will eventually come to a page, from what I can see it will allow you to scavange through the horrific chemicals your own state has bestowed upon you. PA alone over 2,000,000 incidents of on site disposal or “other” I Cannot explain to you what makes me cringe as much as the word “other” when it comes to Industrial,Cooperate “otherness” please search the link I provide for you and make your own decision.—Peace
