Unnatural gas

Dear Editor:

Natural gas extraction threatens our water. Natural gas extraction threatens the air we breathe. Natural gas extraction threatens the wildlife. Natural gas extraction threatens our farms. Natural gas extraction threatens our peace and tranquility. Natural gas extraction threatens the town we live in.

Natural gas extraction threatens everything you have and love. There is nothing natural about natural gas extraction. Fracking can change your life forever. One pipeline leads to another. Morgan County is too beautiful to be ruined by greedy gas corporations. Too many people have already suffered from their wrath of destruction. We get nothing from it, but fear. Imminent domain is not humane. What happened to our Constitutional rights? What happened to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Corporate gas companies can take these rights away from you. These are our mountains, not theirs. Write letters, protest and stand together. They can be stopped, just say no.
