Re: Fracking Contamination and the Chesapeake Bay
snarky answer....they (who ever they are) have been studying the bay for decades and not one thing has been done... they have studied the crap behind conowingo dam, they have studied the fracking up above Frackville, PA (real place by the way) and depending on which they you side with, they are making progress in cleaning up, etc, the bay. Believe the CBF, and the other green groups who pay themselves quite well and build wonderful offices for themselves on the backs of contributors. Even the people who live where the fracking is currently happening, can't agree on it's plus' or minus'...some say the wells are dying by the thousands, others say that has been the case since they discovered gas up that way last century...
Follow the money.
Real answer....read this months Chesapeake Bay magazine, one of the best "tell it like it is" about issues that affect the bay, in decades. Then do some research at the U of Md's studies as well as VIMS in VA...of the Bay and it's critters
the signs are ominous that nothing has really changed since the 70's as WE continue to value perfect lawns and cheap chickens over water quality. WE keep wanting more stuff and bigger houses and that gets rid of land that once filtered things.
Until WE convince the politicians of our desires for clean water....well you get the message..
