And a lot where water is scarce and this doesn't include water rendered unsafe for use after fracking either...seems all states should be at least re-evaluating if not imposing at least moratoriums..

Overall water is becoming more scarce. We need to seriously address the question of whether we can afford to waste our water on FRACKING.

And i wonder how much the frackers have to pay for all the water they contaminate? Maybe if they had to pay for what they destroy (like any citizen would be required to) then they couldn't afford to dot it.

Just a related story on fracking and rebewables i saw the other day:

Thank you! We have to fight this to save ourselves and the planet from the voracious appetite of the modern day robber barons.

Humanity needs to restrain its numbers and demands on nature. We also need to switch to appropriate renewable energy sources.

Water quality and availablity should come first. We should look after water sources carefully.

Well of course let's make sure we pollute water where there isn't much available. Unfortunately, Halliburton (father of fracking), President Bush's family (patent holder of the drill used), and large corporations are expanding fracking into every state, Russia, Asia, Europe, Africa, and more whether there is enough water or not. Resident's of every state and all world locations have to scream loud, hard, and continuously to stop the propagation of contaminated water and hazardous waste. TY Kit.

Water is too should be protected. I agree with all above comments, esp., greenplanet e.
