Fracking in Brandywine? Could it happen?

Maryland voted to ban fracking until for 2 1/2 yrs., which was already 1/2 a year ago. What happens when the ban is over? Could it really happen here?

We are, apparently, getting more natural gas plants in Brandywine. Those power plants might want a local resource for their gas. Did you know that the Taylorsville basin, which runs under Brandywine, is getting fracking proposals in Virginia (news report here). “…the Taylorsville basin, a 109-mile region east of Fredericksburg, as far south as Richmond and as far north as Clinton, Md., where the U.S. Geographic Survey estimates there are roughly 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and another 37 million barrels of liquid natural gas.”

The chair of the Prince George’s Co. Chapter of the Sierra Club will be speaking this Sunday and opening up to questions and discussion – see more here.
