The people who live on the land know that when fracking happens, our water gets contaminated. Some people get proof only to have it hidden HERE. So we have to keep the proof coming but we need to keep industry influence out of it. There is an opportunity for all of us to help with that.
Link to a video that explains this opportunity.

Just heard from a local person in Booger County that their water well went bad just after gas drilling & fracking several years ago–they had to get on local water supply. People in Booger are scared to talk about bad things done by the GasHoles!!!

Not doubting your commentary, but why are they scared to talk about bad things done by the GasHoles? It would be nice to know what are the road blocks to disclosure.
The GasHoles have complete control of all aspects of the local junta in Booger County. As an example, complain and the wheels start turning and next thing you know, your property taxes get put onto an escalator! Or, if you are an outsider, there is always the bogus traffic stops and tickets, etc., etc.
The Gasholes use intimidation tactics against landowners. Many people have told me that as long as they don’t complain the company will leave them alone but if they complain something bad will happen.
Pick as many as apply
We will sue.
We will drill more wells on your land/next to you.
We will fire your brother-in-law with the 6 kids who works for us.
We will turn your neighbors against you.
We will threaten physical harm.
We will smash your mailbox with a baseball bat. (This actually happened to several outspoke people on the same night. They all lived in separate neighborhoods and none of the other mailboxes in their neighborhood was smashed that night.)
