Environmental costs


So case those wells properly and follow drilling procedures by the book, but the environments of gas extraction areas are not fully protected by current laws and attitudes in Harrisburg. The so-called possibility of increased jobs in the gas lands is hardly worth another despicable legacy of timber and coal extraction in our beautiful Pennsylvania wild lands and state parks now under the onslaught of pad and pipeline construction. Once these sacred places are damaged, they will be forever lost.
