6 minutes from the air over Dimock

I cannot imagine that pro-drilling folks truly want the Ligonier Valley to look like this; even without the smells and minus the constant truck traffic and the ruined well water, Dimock is a diminished place when viewed from above. It must have looked a lot like Ligonier before the oil and gas industry bought it. Factor in the pollution, the health hazards and the degraded property values... . What a penny-wise, pound-foolish thing, fracking is.
