Hilarious. No mention that oil companies have been given an exeption from the
Clean Water Act. Making the statement, "EPA has determined that
there are not levels of contaminants present that would require additional
action by the agency," it concluded last July.That's
because the EPA has no legal grounds to take any action against fracking. I find this article full of nuanced slimy oil company lawyer answers to
In the interests of fracturing, and a variety of other practices of the
petroleum exploration industry, the concept of 'drill, baby', to which
we so enthusiastically subscribed only a few years ago, must excuse a few
problems here and there. It's the trade we were willing to make.
watch the documentary "Gasland". I personally would not want my tap
water lightable! If it is so safe - why is it exempt from the clean water act?
Why do they need this exemption?
Just how many of you have ever been around a frac job? Please stand up and be
counted, oh come on now i know you all have more oil field experiance that those
of us that work in it. And please when you start complaining about some thing
you have know knowledge of just remember you will not fid the truth by watching
AM radio. All so next time you turn up the heat in your house or put gas in your
car it came from the ablity to drill and frac.
Oh really "not here" while working in the oil field they often gave you
time and resources to test the ground water? You're an environmental
engineer? There are plenty of engineers that have documented contamination in
ground water from fracking.So you stand and be counted. Post your
evidence and credentials.
