BREAKING NEWS: Chesapeake Energy Suspends Hydrofracking in Pennsylvania

Chesapeake Energy has suspended hydrofracking in Pennsylvania until the cause of a well blowout in Leroy Township  late Tuesday night can be determined.  The well is still out of control.  Toxic fluids were spilled onto farm fields and into a tributary of Towanda Creek which flows in the Susquehanna River.

One man who lives near the well is worried his water well will be ruined.  The well is located several hundred yards from the blown-out well.  His well and several other nearby water wells are being tested for contamination.

You mean that the gas company isn't trying to say that an act of God caused these toxic chemicals to suddenly appear out of nowhere this time? SHOCKER!

If this goes down like it usually does, Chesapeake will be up and running within a week.
