Putting out water at risk is suicidal... the Greedocracy at it's finest. :(

Noted Thanks Cal for sharing Gee now there is a surprise. How long has the water been contaminated is the question, although I am quite sure that this information won't come out any time soon. While we are on the subject of water I thought that I would share an update on The Detroit water crisis. Windsor residents have been crossing the boarder in drools to help with the water crisis by taking jugs of fresh water over to Detroit residences. Although they can't bathe in it at least they have drinking water. KUDOS WINDSOR CANADA

I agree with Sue. Greedocracy is choking the world and all it`s inhabitants...economically and otherwise.

I find this very worrying not least as where I live, in England, large parts of our island are about to be opened up to fracking.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Cal. There's that horrible, nasty Halliburton Loophole again! It exempts fracking from the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). If I recall correctly, it also exempts frackers from listing what chemicals they use. This Loophole has to go! It is the reason for the huge explosion of fracking all over the U.S. Who says we don't need regulations?

TY, Cal for the information. And Lois - I didn't know about the Halliburton Loophole. Is there anyone in Congress who would sponsor a bill to repeal it? Of course I mean AFTER the next ELECTION. Please tell everyone you know is concerned about our EARTH that we NEED EVERY VOTER in November to get rid of the free ride Tea-publicans; especially since there are so many efforts to prevent a true democratic vote.

I wonder what the planet will look like when they decide that fracking wasn't worth the bother.

Well, of course it does, they inject chemicals into the ground to crack rocks and release oil, then they just leave the chemicals in the ground, which eventually percolate into the aquifers that we drink... but of course the oil companies will continue to deny this fact and this study...

Noted and signed. No fracking/safe water. Trust Halliburton having a loophole that protects fracking from the
Safe Water Drinking Water Act...Dick Cheney was the head of Halliburton during the Iraq war- ruthless, money hungry so & so...
Thanks Cal.
