I came across this interesting article in the New York Times today. It seems the issue of horizontal hydraulic fracturing is pinning many farmers and neighbors against one another in the Northeast. After having watched a rather frightening documentary on this very issue not too long ago, I must admit that I would be a little more than uncomfortable if a neighbor was leasing his or land for drilling nearby.
What do you think? Should we all be concerned?
