Gas Drilling News from Protecting Our Waters

Citizens in Texas take a stand against gas drilling! I hope that the areas of Pennsylvania where gas drilling is happening take notice:

In the Flower Mound area a spike in childhood leukemia has been linked to gas drilling.  Five children have been diagnosed in the past 2 – 4 years.  Benzene, formaldehyde and other fracking fluid constituents can cause leukemia.  People in the area raised their concerns repeatedly, publicly, and clearly; saw that elected officials were not listening to their serious health concerns, voted those officials out of office and ushered pro-moratorium candidates in. All the gas drilling moratorium candidates win and all the pro-gas candidates lose, by a 60-30 margin.
