- 1501 days ago -
The U.S. EPA released its final draft of its report today, assessing how fracking for oil and gas can impact access to safe drinking water. This refuted the conclusion arrived at by the EPA's 2004 study that fracking poses no threat to drinking water

You were lucky, then, Jana - as I said the last time you mentioned having no problems living in fracking fields ...

OOPS - Oh - but that was Bonnie Harris at that time. Same comment, different profile.

Noted. Thanks, Evelyn.
And, glad to see actor Mark Ruffalo take a very public stand in this movement to bring more awareness. That Halliburton Loophole where frackers don't have to publicly disclose the chemicals they use needs to go! That would be a first step, along with pushing for a nationwide moratorium on fracking.

Why do they have to waste money on a study like this. Fracking should never be allowed.

Sure, and I'm going to be the Queen of England next week.

Does anyone wonder who financed the study of 2004? Fracking does not only affect drinking water - it is also responsible for lots of "mini earthquakes" in those regions where fracking is going on. Google it and you'll be in for a surprise ... if you don't already know. As for those who have no problems living in fracking fields ... hope they don't fall in the crack ...

Actually, Eleonora - I think they already did!

Once you understand the principle and practical of Fracking, you realize it's a very dangerous operation.
