About Bob Schmetzer

Beaver County Marcellus Awareness Project

I got involved after I went to a weekend seminar with Earth Justice in Pittsburgh and found out what fracking was doing to the people and animals out west. The situation was perilous. Cancer clusters, brain lesions, ground ozone that burnt holes in lungs, etc. And this industry was coming to Pennsylvania? The more you know, the more you can’t ignore the issues. First it was the seismic testing with the explosions and thumper trucks. Then a continuing of road, infrastructure, wetlands, pipelines, explosions and toxic gasses vented near school houses and hospitals. These are violations of our constitutional rights by government that are destroying property and the health of people. People come before profit. Do no harm is the law. Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country!
