I'm not religious but if you've ever read the Genesis account of the Flood it speaks of the heavens opening and the bonds that hold the water contained in the earth released from below. This knowledge isn't something new it's something we forgot long ago.

Michael Kirkby makes a good point. That being said, there is no excuse not to clean up the water we now have before tapping into this source.

Wonder who'll try to patent this water...before the general public can have any.

Dianne, the 1% don't want our fresh water clean. They want to sell us the water they've bought the rights for. There's no profit in cleaning up the water they've polluted and poisoned. Fracking companies aren't paying for the water to replace wells and aquifer water they contaminated...not even offering to pay.

This is fascinating news, but, don't tell the 'frackers'.
They might suggest that they can tap into it for us.
