Landscape Consequences of Natural Gas Extraction in Bradford and Washington Counties, Pennsylvania, 2004–2010
When I look at the aerial photos in this study I ask: Where will we grow food?
These landscape effects have consequences for the ecosystems, wildlife, and human populations that are colocated with natural gas extraction activities.

Someone with a bulldozer connected to EOG took out a historic building:
Last remaining original Fort Spunky building razed
“Rhett and James said they had found Civil War buttons and Coke bottles from the 1920s and 1930s. Cecil said he had found a musket bullet on his place next door.
Beyond the fence, piles of Fort Spunky silica – “frack sand” – stood as an earthmover rolled by.
Max Rhodes said there may have been some confusion about the size of the easement, thinking it was 40 feet instead of 20 feet.
After the house was bulldozed, a man did call Max Rhodes to apologize, he said.
The man also asked Max not to go public with the story about the incident, he said.”
I guess that frack sand must be really valuable to ignore a historic building. Thanks, EOG.
