A similar grab and crash scenario is playing out in my hometown back in Pennsylvania. Rich, untapped farmland has been leased by natural gas drilling companies from private individuals to siphon the land (we're talking in the hundreds and hundreds of contracts). While the scenario has made alot of mostly low-income families alot of money quickly it also is presenting alot of environmental concerns. But, in these times, big energy companies are able to flash the money and get what they want.
