Subject: [ACTNET-FRAC-NEWS] Not just Marcellus. It's beyond Marcellus.
Reply-To: Peter Dawson Buckland <pdb118@PSU.EDU>
I want you to know that I am going next Thursday to Harrisburg to speak to Governor Corbett about opening up State Forest Land to Natural Gas Drilling.
I am tired of this. Beneath the Marcellus Shale is the Utica Shale on which my beloved home, the Rothrock State Forest rests. My heart, my family, the breath of our air has been compromised in Moshannon and Tioga and Sprowl and Forbes and Bald Eagle and Allegheny enough. This boy who has ridden and loved these forests can't take it anymore.
So if you'd care to join me, please do. Next Thursday we will be going to the Governor's Office. Not just the Capitol Building. We are going to the office and we are going to talk to him about this because it's too much. The water. Traffic. Noise. Deer killed. Fish kills. Price gouging. Market manipulations. Campaign rigging and contributions.
To prove the point, I will be riding my bike from my house in State College starting at about 4 am and arriving there in the late morning. No fossil fuels. I will have a prepared letter for the governor. Until he meets with me/us, I will not leave.
Others are coming. Maybe just my wife. But I want YOU to join me! Tomorrow I am calling everyone I can to get us together to fight this thing.
What do you say?
