This week, a well-regarded scientist from Columbia University spoke to the press about how evidence strongly indicates that recent earthquakes in Youngstown may have been directly caused by oil and gas drilling operations there. The situation is so serious that the State of Ohio declared a temporary moratorium on drilling activities while the (catastrophic) problem is analyzed. It was also noted by the executive VP of the Ohio oil and gas association that, "We haven't seen anything from anyone at (the state agency) that would lead us to believe that the well was not operating properly."

We, Nopaxton.com, are a growing group of Lodi and Saline residents that are concerned about the impact that oil and gas drilling and associated operations may have on our land and environment. Those who live here appreciate the natural beauty, clean water and air, and relative peace and quiet, and want to keep it that way. Based on substantial freely and publicly available information, it is clear that exploitation of oil, gas, and other mineral resources under our land may result in a variety of unintended, unwelcome side-effects, and we do not intend to allow that to happen.
