It's time to close the Halliburton Loophole so that those affected by the chemical cocktail used by the energy industry to facilitate the fracking process can be made aware of what's making them sick and go after the industry that doesn't care about their health and well being. Corporate greed just keeps getting uglier and uglier.

Ditto Susanne! When will we make our united VOICES HEARD? Enough toxins in our air, soil and ground water. In my area we even have the added bonus of something unheard of here, until the FRACKING began, earth quakes.

We're making our planet sick and everything in it. Wish we could unite and do something besides just petitions that continue to be ignored, Kit!!!!!

Fracking affects everything. You said the magic words Susanne---CORPORATE GREED!! Passed down to our politicians who allow it to happen so they can share the wealth. They are the ones that need to be fracked--not Mother Earth.

The waste of water, the chemicals... gotta leave the Earth in peace. Fracking is bad news. Poor animals.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
you cannot eat money.

Thanks, the Cornell study has been out and about for about a year now. Thanks for raising it again. Doesn't look good for us here in NY as the Gov and his DEC are stonewalling.

Thanks for posting, Cal. *I'm sorry I'm unable to send Cal a green star since I sent one already this week.
Susanne is absolutely right about closing that Halliburton Loophole---it should be a major first target on our path to get completely rid of fracking. The only people profiting are the fracking companies....the rest of us are getting literally sick. I will keep signing those anti-fracking and anti-oil pipeline petitions and letters, though. Just sent a couple off to my Congress critters today.

ughhhhh this stuff is deadly, and no one has barely noticed it, 35,000 of these things have been put up and no one has even realized the poisons these things have been putting into the water and earth... this is a cause in it's self... I am trying to figure out how to gather forces to stop this, Gov walker approved a whole mass of these all across Wis. I mean enough to wipe out the Ojibwa Tribes... and take out the Cranberry Bogs... And there is not enough time to stop them... not sure what to do yet.... thinking thinking thinking..need to take action...he ridered them onto the sand frack mines.... we are doomed

We are all sick and dying of something thanks to GOVERNMENT BIG NUT!

I see my pets die of things that I never heard about before. Sadly, we can't get back to the small farms, it is BUSINESS.

Let's Kill off Wolves, Horses, and get more land to Kill off Humans.

I want Politicans to be KILLED OFF FIRST and I will drive a BUS to cart them to FEED DIRECTLY!
