  Why Not Just Impose High Taxes

To Cover Damages and Compensate ?

------ A tax, unfortunately, is more likely to  INCREASE the speed of  legislators  in passing permit approval (without any proper regulation or oversight in place), as they rush to  garner tax funds for their “pet projects”  ---- while they have a proven, clear track record of being unable to properly monitor or control the spills and violations. Yes there are "state accounts" that the money will be directed to - but then ultimately from there it goes back to the various communities . 

-------- Citizens  already have virtually no voice as to where and how their taxes are used -  so that they find  doggy parks and soccer clubhouses being  built , while infrastructure is left to crumble and  while political allies are rewarded in a thousand ways.  This is a problem everywhere .
 
------Legislators pushing for taxes are on the record saying taxes are needed for  “clean up”  or “damages” – which  means that they are already quite aware that  drillers will not be held responsible for damages, or clean up or for the consequences of their actions  – an outrage.  In essence, they are already ADMITTING  there will not be proper oversight or enforcement.    

-------- Because fracking has a PROVEN RECORD of damaging the air and the water ours and enforcers seem to be overlooking their own obligation to uphold the constitution : as well as their  duty  to protect the health safety and welfare of ALL of their constituents.  Re: our Constitutional Rights:    click here to see Article 1 Section 27 of the PA Constitution entitleing Pennsyvanians to clean air and water and estethetic aspects of their lands..
 
----------- Any pretense that this fracking “destruction” is necessary for our national security, to ensure  a stable supply of energy, would fly in the face of the facts that this energy is being traded as a commodity – and sold in the world markets – to China, Japan, India etc.  We are poisoning our water, land and citizens to make corporate wealth for a few, not for national interests.  

-----------  Our obsession and time spent on fracking  and our reliance on a commodity so easily sold to others, has put at bay the most necessary interests of  our national security and of our environmental stewardship  …..the pursuit of  alternative, clean, renewable fuels .
