Anyone interested in the subject of extracting natural gas from the earth needs to watch the HBO documentary "GASLAND" . Yes, there is big money for the landowners, but the downside is the devastating impact on underground water supplies.....the water table. The chemicals used to extract the gas are not available to the public. The cracks created allow natural gas into the water table and some landowners can literally light their house water on fire as it comes out of the home faucets. Any grazing animals ingest the chemicals through grazing or drinking the water. Yes, you can get rich, but at what cost? Again, GREED owns the day.
