    With directional drilling there is absolutely no reason for oil and gas drilling to be done anywhere near residential areas or schools. Any drilling engineer, with the proper equipment, can turn their drill bore horizontal and go for thousands of feet (even miles) to hit a deposit easily. But, it might cost the company a few more dollars and, of course, money is so much more important than human heath to oil and gas companies. I know, as I was an environmental engineer for an oil company for 20 years.

    I thought “Fair Use” had to be fair and kept in context so as not be be distorted and dishonest. It seems to me like this is a case of “False Light” and reasonable to bring a lawsuit. I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.

    These are the same scare tactics the coal companies used in Appalachia. I wonder if Molly Hughes or her benefactors live near oil drilling sites?
