Anyone live by shale mining? It is going to happen big time around us soon.Just wonder what the effects will be. All they talk about right now is the money,and the benefits to the local economy.
All I know is we had multiple earthquakes.One rattled the house big time back in January,and they said it was caused by fracking aka shale mining. Now they are going to do MORE drilling and fracking.They won't stop fracking,but said they would *watch* the effects more closely.
Will the mining increase dust/pollution in the air? Will water get polluted? What has been your experience as a result of nearby shale mining? I ordered the movie GASLAND from the library.Turns out it is a docu about shale mining and the effects it had on people.
