Here’s a fact: Gas drilling operations and pristine forests don’t go together. Help us protect the Loyalsock State Forest from drilling!
Thanks to their preservation, Pennsylvania state forests like Loyalsock are recreational gems. The Loyalsock State Forest consists of more than 100,000 acres of pristine wilderness. All of that is being threatened as Loyalsock is considered as a site for Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling. Allowing drilling to occur in Loyalsock would fragment the forest, leaving miles of clearings for new roads, pipelines and drill pads.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just proposed long-overdue power plant pollution standards to limit the amount of toxic metals and other chemicals that can be dumped in our water. Unfortunately the coal industry is already trying to block them.
