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.

Radioactive Waste in the Genesee River (Upstate NY)
Here is a very important issue that demands our attention:
Radiation concerns everyone along the Genesee River downstream of Angelica, NY !
(The Genesee River flows north and empties into Lake Ontario.)
The Hyland Landfill in Angelica is along the Genesee River that flows north through Rochester into Lake Ontario. It is one of five in NY State permitted to accept tailings and other waste from fracking operations. Hyland already accepts drill cuttings from PA frack sites and wants to expand the landfill to accept more radioactive fracking waste. The DEC public comment period on this expansion request has been extended to July 21: http://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20130508_reg9.html#902320000300002
