Fracking is going on full force in upstate PA where I go to kill deer and turkeys. There has been some minor spillage but pretty much every local who sold out to let them drill on their property now has a new barn, Harley, and pick-up and there kids are all going to East Stroudsburg paid in full. I know those companies got the governor elected in PA (Corbett I think). he is letting them run amok. Those wells are all over the place.
BUT, in terms of our area (beach/ocean) I'm not even sure if there is enough of the gas they hope to get in the shale layer under the ocean off NY, NJ. DE, MD, VA, NC, etc. I thought it was more of a mountain area thingie.
Our genius of a Gov thinks its a good idea to allow uranium mining close to our water source.
There is a public hearing on the proposal at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, NY tonight and tomorrow in Edison, NJ at the NJ Convention and Expo Center.
