That big gas explosion in California topped the news, but next up Katie did a nice story on Marcellus drilling protests! Didn’t make it sound too positive, drinking water issues pointed out, and they showed a clip from Gasland. She also pointed out that the chemicals are not disclosed but that there are moves being made to push companies to reveal them. They talked to the PA dep guy and he agreed that there had been some damage to drinking water but only due to surface water contamination. It’s a real big payday doncha know. Trillions of dollars of gas under there for the taking.
