Of course they did. There's absolutely nothing ethical, moral or defensible about how fracking is being done now. It's repugnant and needs to STOP!

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Naveena Sadasivam. When the gas and oil industries regulate themselves this is what you get and the response from Energy In Depth just doesn't click. There's no federal and/or state oversight and that is the problem.
Read and noted.

The oil and gas industry is the only industry in America that is allowed by EPA to inject known hazardous materials -- unchecked -- directly into or adjacent to underground drinking water supplies.

This exemption from the Safe Drinking Waters Act has become known as the "Halliburton loophole" because it came about as a result of the efforts of Vice President Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force.

Before taking office, Cheney was CEO of Halliburton -- which patented hydraulic fracturing in the 1940s, and remains one of the three largest manufacturers of fracturing fluids. Halliburton staff were actively involved in review of the 2004 EPA report on hydraulic fracturing.

These Greedy Heartless Ones care less about who has clean drinking water, who will sicken and die, all that is of concern is making money. Again, Profits before People.

This is not surprising. Fracking should be outlawed.

When it comes to making money these companies have no conscience and no social responsibility.

If corporations are people, then they should be neutralized, so that they can do no more damage.

When will people wake up when there is no more clean water, trees, wildlife and air to breathe, than we will all be dead.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Cal. Dandelion explained the Halliburton Loophole very well. I don't know what we can do to eliminate it; besides get a nationwide moratorium on fracking.
