Let’s get the question of fracking on the state-wide ballot

Anti-horizontal hydraulic fraLetter to editor_8cking petitions will be out for everyone to sign and hopefully this issue will be put on a ballot for our vote.

Most people are understanding how dangerous this process is and we need to get it stopped. Not only is it possible that our drinking water will be polluted, but our air as well. These horizontal hydraulic fracturing wells produce methane gases and use deadly chemicals in the process.

We already have enough dangerous gases polluting the air affecting our health and causing climate change, which is not a laughing matter.
