Dear High School, College & University Students,

We're receiving an increasing number of inquiries from students seeking information/interviews for their classwork.

Much of the information most of you seek is available via a Google search. Our suggestion is to consult with pro & anti fracking sites & compare the information given, try to find impartial/factual sites too (these are rare).

Earlier this summer, the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) posted an online survey, asking County residents to name the most important public health issues facing the County. Conspicuously absent from the list of choices was anything at all related to fracking. Although many residents "wrote-in" fracking, we have been unable to persuade ACHD to issue the results of their survey.

I am Ed Chute. I live with my wife of 48 years, near Pittsburgh, PA. I vividly remember attending elementary and high school in Pittsburgh when street lights were required at mid day because of the dense darkness at noon and when the night skies were constantly illuminated nearly as well as our daylight hours by the industrial glow.

Comments to EPA 8/1/14

In 1968, the Mannington Mine in Farmington WV owned by Consol Coal, caught fire, blew up, and 78 miners were buried, many likely alive.
In 1972, a Consol mine in Blacksville, WV, caught fire and 9 miners were buried (again, likely alive) when Consol sealed the mine off to stop the fire and save the coal.
