Marcellus Shale: Chesapeake Energy Marketing Ploy

Chesapeake Energy Photo-Op
Chesapeake Energy Corp. has donated a 2007 Chevy Trailblazer to the Bradford County Sheriff's Office.  Even if this vehicle is needed, which it probably is,  this is really nothing more than a ploy by Chesapeake Energy to appear to care about the citizens of Bradford County.  They have done several other "nice" things, like donating to "Newspaper In Education" program.  There is always a picture in the newspaper and an article, submitted by Chesapeake, attempting to show how much it cares.  In reality, inspite of the money that a few landowners are receiving, and a few jobs,  Bradford County is, in my opinion, headed for trouble.  It is being transformed before our very eyes into an industrial wasteland which will ultimately destroy our soil, our air, and our water.  People will become sick with cancers and other illnesses, as will our animals.  Deaths will occur.  Chesapeake doesn't want us to think about that, so they give us an SUV.  Isn't that wonderful?
