Is Natural Gas a Cleaner Alternative Energy or a Danger to Communities?

American Energy Coalition - June 14th, 2010

Natural gas is often touted as a clean alternative fuel, but to more than a dozen families sharing the neighborhood with natural gas wells in Dimock, Pa., natural gas has been anything but clean, according to a story on ABC News. The majority of people in this small town in northeastern Pennsylvania leased their land to Houston-based Cabot Oil and Gas, which has 62 gas wells in the area. Not long after the drilling began, residents along Carter Road noticed their water was turning bad. "I was getting dizzy and almost blacking out. Sometimes I did black out," says Pat Farnelli, a mother of eight who has gas wells are both sides of her property.
