Just imagine the possibilites of living in a world where people learned from the mistakes of others, heeded the warnings of those who went before them and listened to their mothers.
Shale oil & gas mining operations are moving into new areas everyday. Right now, somewhere in America, a landman is telling someone that signing a lease for shale mining is like found money. “It’s like finding thousands of dollars lying on the ground. All you have to do is pick it up.”
Didn’t your mother ever tell you that nothing is free? Mine did and I listened to her. Happy Mothers’ Day, Mom.
You Can’t Live in a Quarry.
People know you can’t live in a quarry and they are learning that you can’t live with shale oil & gas mining. Families are moving away from zones of extraction no matter what the cost. (call for research)
The list of The Harmed, the Sickened, the Dead and the Disappeared grows longer everyday although our government has failed to keep track.
Lease holders are learning the true cost of that “free money.” They have a new job where they never get to punch out.
The Fracking Diaspora
There is an Exodus From Shale Drilling Areas Throughout PA and the real estate agents must be in overdrive in Argyle and other heavily drilled areas of the Barnett Shale. But who will buy those homes, who will finance those home sales and who will insure homes in zones of extraction–Insurers find it tough to price fracking risk.
I just want to get out! is the lament I hear most often after people have direct experience with shale mining operations. No matter how beloved your American Dream home or place in the country, it eventually becomes an albatross when trying to get out of the zone of extraction. Where can you find a buyer who wants to live in a quarry?
At some point, the shale mining industry may be force to level with populations:
“Attention! This area has been designated as a zone of extraction and is scheduled for depopulation. All people and animals will be relocated.”
Until then, the shale mining industry will keep using the “found money” lie and hoping to find suckers who have forgotten what their mothers told them. The Fracking Diaspora will continue.
Imagine all the endless possibilities and where we might be if people learned from others mistakes and listened to their mothers.
HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!
