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.

Social and Ethnographic Impact of Gas Drilling
Simona Perry, PhD, addresses the EPIC NO FRACK EVENT held at Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY, on June 25, 2011. She worked with people in Bradford County, PA, collecting their stories in regard to natural gas drilling(Mellon Foundation Project). She covers social, psychological, and political effects of gas drilling in Bradford County. Twenty-five minutes well spent if you have the chance.

Thank you for your work. I live in eastern Susquehanna County and I find your blog professional, reliable, and well-written. I will be meeting Simona Perry this weekend!
Thank you, Trebbe. How was your meeting with Simona Perry?
I totally agree with what she's saying! It is true, it is easy for these extracting companies to do their job but it's not them who suffer most when problems occur.
