The problem with everyone is perhaps one in ten know what fracturing chemicals are.

The problem is we were not suppose to know. It was kept a secret then when the government thought their little secret was going to get out, they exempted fracturing chemicals so they would not interfere with their profitable ventures.

All of this at the expense of the environment which threatens humans, wildlife and aquatic life.

No education? Start learning what is in over 500 toxic fracturing chemicals. Diseases would drop if fracturing chemicals were banned. Has your water been tested for over 500 fracturing chemicals? Do you know what is in those toxic chemicals? No one is going to protect you and this is up to local communities to work together to get the job done: Ban toxic fracturing chemicals. No change will be made until the voice cries across the USA. You can be part of that voice or you can put blinders on and enjoy what life you have left before you die from chronic exposure to natural gas exemptions in water and air.

It feels a little hopeless to protest as the commissioners are generally in support of the drilling. Are those who are concerned really have a voice here?
