I've attended many of the shale commission meetings and have seen no evidence that fracking can be done safely. To the contrary, I've seen study after study indicate its hazards to air, water, soil and the people and animals living nearby. Of course, to approve Cove Point is to approve the fracking that will feed it. The two are inseparable. I encourage the governor to take time off from campaigning for president to more carefully study the many hazards of fracking and of exporting fracked gas from Cove Point.
