Fracking process destroys quality of life

Fracking process destroys quality of life: Inside rural Pennsylvania, a process for extracting gas from shale known as fracking has free dangerous gases into a community's drinking water.

On a quiet street, tucked off the main road in Dimock, Pennsylvania, live people who once dreamed of spending their lives in this close-knit community. Now most residents say they want to move, but have no chance of being able to sell their homes or property.

The people of Dimock live above the Marcellus Shale, an plentiful source of natural gas and one of the best energy alternative to oil in the United States. Most residents in Dimock signed lease with the Cabot Oil and Gas Company that allowable the company to drill into their property and set up pads to produce gas. In exchange for the rights to invade the earth under the surface, the inhabitants would receive royalties from the sale of the gas.
