Texas family's water is contaminated with natural gas detritus
We have been told for years that the EPA is federal government oversight and
shouldn't exist anyway, government regulation is killing industry, we need
to become energy independent and support drilling in all forms in all places,
and companies will do the right thing and if they don't, free market forces
will take care of it. This story sounds like the conservative ideal.
More misinformation about "fracturing" and the process it uses to then
pump the gas out of the fractured subterranean rock formations.Fracking is really fracturing as the process implies. Shortening the word in
the slang of oil well drillers and company CEO's does not change the
process. Fracking is the process of drilling many large holes in to subterranean
gas and water bearing rocks then lower tons of high explosives used in bomb
manufacturing and mining industry into the many holes and triggering the blast
all at once to "fracture" gas and water bearing subterranean rock
structures. Then pump water into the fractured earth to force the gas upwards
through all the fractured earth mantel structures pipe lines and surrounding
land.Fracturing weakens subterranean structure much like basement
parking garages under high rise office buildings, aka twin towers and Oklahoma
FBI building bombs, except these blasts are miles underground, out of sight and
out of control.It is curious though why the EPA has the authority to
remove an investigation before it reaches a conclusion or changes its mind after
blackmail and extortion to impose or deny legal actions.
Sorry - that should say "overreach" not "oversight".
The curse of resources continues. I thank the good Lord for NOT putting oil
under my land or the devil would come to collect it.
To all of you on here complaining about what might be happening with fracing and
what might not. Oh Lordy,Lordy,Lordy wah tin the world wought of happened if the
other guy had got in to office and relaxes all the REG.'s for the EPA and
got all the drilling he wanted? Would you all be up in arms as you are now?
