SURPRISE!!!! People are desperate for jobs or this would not be happening. Well, it wouldn't be when people still had brains. Only a fool could think this practice is safe. It doesn't take a rocket scientist. Grow some flippin brains people; oh, but maybe its the water?

One going up in southern Ashtabula County. That's to close, that's the same water table. I sure wouldn't want them to drill on our property.

BP and Halcon's paid liar says that we have nothing to worry about. The ODNR's paid liar agrees with BP's assessment of the situation. Just keep moving people, nothing to see or worry about here.... Stupid Fockers!

plus, the chances of your water being toxic arent that high anyway. if you do get cancer from methane in your water at least you helped create a few jobs. its worth riskimg it.
