Whose wells were polluted or rendered inoperable by fracking?
No ones well anywhere has been affected by fracking. If there was an actual example; we would be hearing about it believe me. Fracking takes place far below the water table.
My family's well was screwed up by a city landfill. For years they allowed dry cleaner fluid to be dumped directly on the ground.
Because of fracking and other emerging technologies in the energy sector we now have several times more known economically exploitable gas and oil reserves in our country alone than we did ten years ago. This is creating panic in the eco-nut-ball world. They were counting on shortages of hydrocarbon energy sources to drive the price of energy to unaffordable levels by now.
We are going to be hearing an unbelievable amount of anti-fracking propaganda. This is the biggest threat to the environmental left in the past 50 years.
