Signed. Thanks Cal. I still can't believe they are actually thinking of allowing fracking.

Signed and noted, thanks Cal. Fracking has been a big issue here in Arkansas recently. It should definitely be a topic of discussion and concern. No one knows what's in the water and what is coming out with it, I can't imagine someone using it for yogurt. YECK!!

Fracking done majority state from California, Texas, OK, AK, OH. Spills and methane contamination fall under existing state and federal regulations. Fracturing, by contrast, received a specific exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act from a Republican Congress and then-President George W. Bush in the 2005 energy bill

Fracturing fluids can contain toxins like benzene or 2-Butoxyethanol, commonly called 2-BE, a toxic solvent. They are a tiny fraction of the mix, but human exposure to some of them is measured in parts per million.

It seems like for every big win New York has made this year, to much public applause and/or media coverage, at the same time they're talking big steps backward also, but without that same media exposure.
Also, helping occasionally at the local food bank I see alot of this stuff going to people that can't even afford a newspaper much less the internet to know the issues connected to much of what they recieve.
Trans fats and palm oil aren't even on their radar...but the stores that donate it still get big tax deductions for the donation...i guess they figure they don't have to worry as this is one consumer base that isn't going to boycott our complain...sad and shady.

Everyone should oppose fracking and speak out take action against it. Gas companies know they are poisoning the water we drink and are doing little if anything to change and not use toxic chemicals.

In our local paper, a few weeks ago, this article was titled, 'FRACKING FLUID STUNT PUTS FOCUS ON SAFETY OF DRINKING WATER', written by Catherine Tsai.
During a keynote lunch speech at the conference presented by the Colorado Oil and Gas Assoc., Halliburton Co. CEO Dave Lesar talked about addressing public concerns about hydraulic fracturing, which extracts natural gas by blasting a mix of water, chemicals and sand underground.

He raised a container of Halliburton's new fracking fluid and called up a fellow executive to demonstrate how safe it was by drinking it, according to two attendees.
The executive mocked reluctance, then took a swig, which is called CleanStim, made by a Houston company. The company itself, has stated, that the product shouldn't be considered edible.
Of course, many people at the conference wondered why the CEO, Mr. Lesar didn't drink it himself.

The article, then goes on, to report that roughly 90% of wells in the U.S. are fracked, according to the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. Each component of fracking fluid does something different, such as killing bacteria or preventing corrosion.
