About Gas Truth
Gas Truth of Central PA are people who care about our water, air and land. We are not experts, scientists or policy wonks. We are Pennsylvanians that have woken up to the fact that hydraulic fracture drilling for natural gas is the key environmental issue of our time. Many of us were awakened by seeing the film Gasland, other by friends and family in the shale region that have been affected by gas drilling. What we share is a desire to take action and organize.
Gas Truth of Central PA are citizens organizing to make the following positive changes in Pennsylvania and Federal policy regarding hydraulic fracture natural gas drilling.
