Ohio Gov.-elect John Kasich (KAY'-sik) says the natural gas formation known as the Marcellus Shale could give a needed economic boost to the state.
The gas riches of the vast Marcellus Shale — which underlies Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and part of Ohio — have attracted a rush of drillers to the region in the last two years....
.....Kasich says Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp., a leading U.S. producer of natural gas, has big plans in Ohio. A message was left with Chesapeake seeking comment....
Did Kasich make these plans himself before he took office? Were these projects set up by the Strickland administration? What kind of influence is Kasich using to get the job for Chesapeake Energy? Does it have anything to do with the $2,500 campaign contribution made by Scott Rotruck, of Chesapeake Energy in West Virginia on 9/27/10 to the Kasich Taylor for Ohio Committee? For documentation, see Ohio Secretary of State website. I'm just asking.
If you are interested in the damage to the air, water, and environment done by the shale drilling, check out Bob's Blog for details, including this picture:
Drill Baby, Drill!
Gas drilling rig near Hickory spewing rock dust everywhere..
a layer of dust covered the entire farm, inside and out!
This is what we have to look forward to during the Kasich administration.
