This plan is giving less than half the facts on the fracking waste being
generated in Utah and where to store the millions of barrels of toxic water that
can't be recycled. They are implying that microbial recycling of land fill
waste which is a lie, the water will be lost forever from the environment even
for microbial recycling. Land fill is not hardly the main problem with fracking
waste, water losses alone are not even discussed here and that is being hidden
from public knowledge and scrutiny. For every state that comes on
board to process oil by water fracking will accumulate substantial quantifies of
water that become toxic and must be buried like nuclear waste water for hundreds
of thousands of years. It will give us a scorched earth environment eliminating
water resources of aquifers with water table dropping to levels prohibiting the
growth of all plant life and forests as we know it to exist. Water shed hills in
the Wasatch valley. vital for the survival of babies, parents, politicians,
businesses, and pet dogs will become extinct.The problem is more
severe than politicians are telling us and in 10 years Utah will be a Sahara
My2Cents,Coming from one who talks about "half the facts"
then you claim that "in 10 years Utah will be a Sahara desert"- I have
to say WOW. Now, tell me what on fracking is being hidden from the public
besides the proprietary ingredients of iron inhibitors, weak acid combinations
(which are immediately neutralized on contact with the rocks) and other trace
components that are injected into oil and gas bearing rocks deep underground? I
find it somewhat hilarious that one of the most benign treatments that have been
used for over 50 years in the oil and gas industry is the target of radical
environmental groups. Fracking is merely pumping water and sand at high volumes
deep underground (typically at depths of over one mile). TO understand that,
hike up on top of a 10,000 ft mountain in Utah and look down at the valley.
That is how far away the wellbore stimulation is away from any potable water.
Considering that typical fractures don't exceed more than a few hundred
feet from the wellbore, from fracking, I would say that cause for mass fear has
been greatly exaggerated.
I agree the 10 year is a stretch, but the rest of my2cents comment is
correct.Who stands to profit the radical environmentalist? Or the opportunistic oil and gas folks who would never do anything to increase
their bottom line while endangering the environment. HA!"and
other trace components" Among them known carcinogen and poisons
that the oil company's hides like the ingredients on a pack of smokes.Why is that? Proprietary is a cover they bought with bribes much like the
tobacco companies. Why does a bottle of water have to list ingredients
down to the trace elements, but the frackers and their supporters can pump
whatever they like into the ground beneath your home without your knowledge?
Oh yeah the article was about lakes of theses secret ingredients on the surface
of the land, Not 10,000 feet down. So not quite sure why you switched
subjects and then accuse 2 cents comments of being misleading.Perhaps
thats your job.
