Others are concerned about exposure to radioactive materials or toxic heavy metals brought up from deep underground, or that toxic wastes will damage local water treatment plants. Parents are concerned about their children’s health. Many people are concerned that the the chemicals being used in the fracking process are kept secret. Others believe the gas industry should be subject to environmental laws like everyone else (Companies engaged in hydrofracking are exempt from the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.) Still others believe that the gas industry should be responsible for cleaning up spills and toxic residues. Right now, they can walk away, leaving the landowner responsible.

Many people are concerned that taxpayers are subsidizing the gas industry by paying for the highways, police, EMTs and other community services fracking companies depend on, or that these companies are donating hundreds of millions of dollars to political campaigns to ensure access and favorable treatment. Others are concerned that the multi-million dollar TV advertising campaign claiming that dirty gas drilling is “clean energy” is confusing the public.
