COLUMBUS — ” Thousands from around the state traveled to downtown Columbus on Sunday to send Gov. John Kasich a message about fracking.
Fracking is the name given to the process of injecting water and chemicals into rock to help extract natural gas, 10TV’s Kevin Landers reported.
Some said that they want fracking to stop because of the environmental implications of the process, but other said that the environmental concerns are unfounded.
‘I’m here to see if we can get fracking, if not slowed down, stopped here in Ohio, because I’m really worried about the environment,’ said Kathi Scali of Athens.
John Pais of Huron said that he agreed.
‘The long term impacts on our environment are going to be devastating,’ Pais said.
Members of Don’t Frack Ohio marched from Arch Park to the Ohio Statehouse steps. ”
