Now back to the LP caused by fracking.

Personally, if it gets as bad as all that, I’m moving full-time to Indian Lake NY. There is no gas under the Adirondacks and it’s nearly all a ‘gray zone’. Of course it’s also 20 below and cloudy at night most of the winter.

Aaaand then came the gas line.. 50 feet next to my property. It.. was quite amazing actually. In just months they cleared thousands of acres of trees all the way up and over the mountain. But in the process I lost my second home. The property has gone to hell. I give it a few more months before the retaining wall of my lake blows out. They removed all the trees so there's nothing to hold the ground together. Just needs a good rain storm.
I'm sorry if that's off topic a bit but I wanted to share that. I'm really bumbed about it. Place was my childhood and now its destroyed. And there's nothing I can do. All for more fossil fuels... MORE.. FREAKING fossil fuel.

I got a place in Tunkhannock, PA. ....... My skies went from green ito yellow quite easily.

I'm sorry to hear this. It's really sad. I've been to your town and it *was* a wonderful place.
Alas, I fear that you are describing the future of rural New York as well.

When the sand runs out or the price crashes it's dead certain they will be gone as quickly as they arrived and the lights will be extinguished.
Then the real work will begin.

I don't think I'll be able to stand it if they start fracking here. I'll have to get out. .....
My plan is to move to the Adirondacks, or another nice dark place like North Korea….. oh wait, I mean Cuba! It should be nice there for about 5 years after the hardcore Commies leave and before the casino industry builds up too many lights.

Anyone familiar with SE Ohio know what that could be? It's near the town of Summerfield.

Although PA looks just as bad in the light pollution map shown at the beginning of this thread this map shows the Bakken oil fields much more prominently and was taken just last year:
Gee, reminds me of home
Seriously though, that Bakken development is mental!

My friend sold the farm for frac mining, just like everyone else. In 14 months it went from a quiet farm where you easily mistook the Milky Way for clouds to a giant hole with a bridge and a train loading facility that runs 24/7.
They did not want to sell but they had little recourse and are actually devastated by the results.
This happened in an area that has stayed basically unchanged in my lifetime.
The mile(s) long conveyor belt is in the approval stamping stage. More lights needed undoubtedly.
I no longer recognize the area. Everything that was familiar to me has vanished in little over a year.
