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.
An oil and gas company recently fracked a “shallow” well on my property, just over 200’ horizontally (min by law) from my water well. They drilled to a depth of about 2500’ and fracked in several zones from that depth upward. In this case, less than 1/2 mile down. I still have a great water well (tested). I don’t really care for the eyesore though.
So a bunch of cows will drink water containing methane hydrate and smell worse than usual while blowing out farts and explosive cowpies?
