Funny thing is that the lefties will whine about the Cheney Exception when it was actually Bill Klinton’s Administration that let the gas industry be unregulated by the Clean Water Act.

This is one point of view. Contamination from fraking is rare.

Willie,
Just how deep are these wells that they’re frackin’? How close to the surface are they placing the charges? I run a water company servicing 500 homes. When they started drillin’ gas wells near by, I expressed my concern. They told me that the gas wells would be thousands of feet deeper than my 275’ deep wells, and there was no concern at all about contamination.. nonetheless, as I was leaving their engineer’s office I mentioned that if they screwed up, I was gonna be the new owner of their company. So far, 10 years, no problems, but also no frackin’ that I’m aware of. Edge of the Cuyahoga River Valley.

And as this article on Civil Eats suggests, even heavily regulated fracking could be enough to destroy much of New York's Hudson Valley farmland. After all, how many cattle quarantines or lost crops does it take to put a farmer out of business? Answer: not many.

Migration of fruits, nuts, and flakes out of New York City is a far greater threat to the Hudson Valley than fracking!

Natural gas comes in contact with humans and livestock every day. Its why it is called natural.

Upon what premises, and with what level of animal contamination was this action taken?

It sounds like GangGreen bureaucrats doing another Cloward/Piven action.

What we have here is the latest fad among tight sphinctered women who insist on making a difference and are very gullible
They tire of the old water monitoring where they wade in creeks and count larvae.

They are all American enemies of the very worst sort. They are unfit to breathe American air or drink American water

I’m in the Marcellus region. There is also a lot of shallow well activity in which fracking is used. There have been wells contaminated. By far most are not. The Oil company is liable for any problems. They are required to notify the surface owners and test any wells within 1000’.

After the AGW scam, who can believe anything “scientists” from green (RED) sources say, anyway?

Any lie to advance the left agenda of destroying capitalism!

Urban legend scare story. Everything and anything can kill you. There is no total safety guarantee, government regs or no. Don’t move off your couch. You might die. IF you don’t move off your couch you might die. Good luck.

The article is utter nonsense by fear-mongers with political agendas.

Fracking is benign...and is commonplace in Texas...land of cattle.

Fracking takes place **MILES**, yes, Miles beneath drinking water. Fracking is entirely safe at those depths.

Can’t drill our own oil...

Can’t drill for our own natural gas...

Yep - energy independence is REALLY what the LEFT wants (/extremesarcasm off)

It's a loud of crap, IMHO.

They've been fracking the hell out of us here in North Central Texas (Barnett Shale) with no problem. In fact I think this was one of the areas where extensive horizontal hydraulic fracturing was pioneered. I live in a semirural, mixed in with residential, area with some streams, some agriculture (cattle, hayfields) and various other mixed land usage. There are fracking wells all over the place, and no real problems.

It's pretty much only the hippie leftists down in Austin, and the occassional fear mongering journalist, pitching the horror stories.

The the article is about something that MIGHT happen?

Is there any basis for this?

"The holding pond was collecting flowback water from the hydraulic fracturing process on a well being drilled by East Resources Inc. Grass was killed in a roughly 30-foot-by-40-foot area where the wastewater pooled. Although no cows were seen drinking the wastewater, tracks were found throughout the pool, and the cattle had access to it for at least three days until the gas company erected a snow fence around it. Testing showed the wastewater contained chloride, iron, sulfate, barium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, strontium and calcium. Redding said the main element of concern is the heavy metal strontium, which can be toxic to humans, especially children.": Cattle may have drunk well water Since the article doesn't list concentrations of contaminants, it is impossible to tell if they exceeded drinking water standards for cattle. The report by the company contained a little more information: East Resources Inc Questions Basis for PA Department of Agriculture Cattle Quarantine Appears to be much ado about nothing. FYI, strontium is a common element is present most everywhere from 100-1400 ppm : GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION OF ELEMENTS
