Pennsylvania fracking water being disposed in Ohio
Pennsylvania's waste is becoming Ohio's million-dollar treasure.

Marcellus shale drillers are shipping more fracking waste to the Buckeye State, on pace for Ohio to bank nearly $1 million in fees this year from out-of-state drillers pumping hazardous fluids deep under Ohio.

The amount of wastewater Ohio accepted from out-of-state drillers jumped 25 percent in the first quarter, compared to the last quarter of 2010, likely in part because Pennsylvania officials this year increased pressure on drillers to keep fracking waste out of surface water, said Tom Tomastik of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Drillers "have to do something with this waste," said Pam Melott, manager at WTC Gas Field Services in Indiana County, one of several haulers newly registered to ship to Ohio. "There's a lot of prospective customers. Our customers have called me and they want to know, 'What are we going to do?' ... So, yes, they're very interested in this."

2. And Ohio also has opened Lake Erie to business abuse
The House and Senate JUST passed HB 231, which violates the Great Lakes Compact and lets private enterprise decide how much water it can take from the Lake, not the withdrawal rates decided by the Compact.

Ahh, we are do all things possible to leave Ohio a giant smoking ruin within four years.

3. GOPs enjoy violating treaties and ruining international relations
Somebody told them that Canadians are "liberals", so they do this on principle .

5. Just because the house passed a law doesn't mean it will become law...
