I am writing to express my concern about hydraulic fracturing.
This is not something we can take lightly!
There are already other nations banning such practices due to environmental, and therefore social and economical concerns. These countries have as much desire as we do to boost economy, but are not prepared to do it in such a short sighted manner.
Please reconsider any exploration passes or the like to mining companies while proper, independent research is conducted. And please consider the long term affects any decision now may have in the future.
