In 1930, my greatgrandparents purchased a beautiful farm in Bradford County, PA, in a little hamlet called French Azilum. In the summer, we spent time there, resting, breathing in the fresh air, enjoying the wild flowers, the bright stars and planets on a clear moonlit night, and swimming in the Susquehanna River. If gas drilling is allowed to continue, Bradford County and all of Pennsylvania will be forever changed, ruined beyond repair.

Emotional and Traumatic Effects of Natural Gas Drilling
In November of 2011, Simone L. Perry, PhD, gave a presentation entitled, "It's Like We're Losing Our Love," a quote from one of the people she interviewed in Bradford County, PA, in the course of her recent and on-going research. The subtitle of her talk was "Documenting and Evaluating Social Change in Bradford County, PA, During the Marcellus Shale Gas Boom." I have viewed this talk and highly recommend it. A good use of 33 minutes!
