SB367 + Act 13 = This “Could” Get Fracking Bad
The chart is fromWelcome to Pa Frack-U It list the 46 Pennsylvania senators that voted “Yes” to allow drilling on Pennsylvania state colleges. Only 3 voted “No” on Senate Bill 367. The passing of this bill makes the ruling on Act 13 more important than ever.
Just imagine if the drilling companies are allowed to drill wherever they want. You could be sending your child off to school only to have them get sick from fracking related chemicals, exhaust fumes, and tainted water.
By passing SB367 The Pennsylvania Senate gave the drilling companies the ok to drill on Pennsylvania funded College campuses, Parks, Game Lands and any other land owned by the state. In whole or partially.

Below are the reasons; our state government is so quick to turn over the state land to the drilling companies. Also the drilling and gas companies hand a large say in the writing of Act 13.
I would like to add to these facts; These are just cash donations, they don’t represent anything else. UnderstandWink-Wink
Between the years 2000 to present, Senator Donald C White has received $94,150 from the Natural Gas Industry.
HARRISBURG, PA–The natural gas industry and related trade groups have now given nearly $8 million to Pennsylvania state candidates and political committees since 2000, according to new research by Common Cause Pennsylvania and Conservation Voters of Pennsylvania. Top recipients of industry money given between 2000 and April 2012 were Governor Tom Corbett (R) with $1,813,205.59, Senate President Joseph Scarnati (R-25) with $359,145.72, Rep.

Now the video that I have below was put up on Facebook by a friend. And even though I have seen most of the videos that have been put out on the dangers of fracking and have done hundreds of hours of research, there are two parts of this one that really got to me. At 1:40 in the video the lady who is (50) years old. Her words ring true. Then at 2:00 the dog lying on the porch dieing from the fracking chemicals that it had gotten into, made me sick. I thought I had seen it all when I saw pictures of wild life and livestock that had exploded after drinking from fracking chemical spills. Well at least I thought the shock value was gone.
More below the video.
On a Personal Note;
I feel that anyone who can say, Hydraulic Fracturing is totally safe for the people, animals and environment and does not cause these problems has no soul. The reports and studies are coming in and they are not favorable for the fracking companies.
The right wing media keeps telling us that the (democrats/liberals) are ramping up the propaganda when it comes to Hydraulic Fracturing. However the proof is out there to be seen as long as you are not blinded by the dollar signs, or taking campaign contributions from the Drilling/Gas companies.(Bribes)
