    EPA Concludes Fracking a Threat to U.S. Water Supplies

    Starting in 2008, ProPublica published stories that found hydraulic fracking had damaged drinking water supplies across the country. The reporting examined how fracking in some cases had dislodged methane, which then seeped into water supplies. In other instances, the reporting showed that chemicals related to oil and gas production through fracking were winding up in drinking water, and that waste water resulting from fracking operations was contaminating water sources.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Fracking, it only takes common sense to realize how this was never good in many levels. The only ones who think other wise are those who were sold bs by either a company they worked for telling this is the case, and naturally we take the so called experts words for it.
    But just like everything else that makes huge companies, stock holders etc big, big money all around the circles are willing to brush it under the rug as long as they can keep it going to make huge bucks off of it.
    Investors and the old saying money talks bull shit walks couldn't be more true.

    Just look at the case of " Erin Brockovich, it took her years to prove some corporation dumping poisons into the water was making people sick and killing them. They covered it up for years and sold those town people a bunch of bs information. Once they couldn't deny the illnesses that big money was able to beat down many law suites, hide evidence et.

    I never know what to believe on environmental issues because liberals are constantly lying about everything.

    So fracking may be dangerous, but there is no way for me to know.

    This is the cost of lying, the total lack of faith people have in what you say.

    99% of studies say otherwise so I have to go with the settled science.

    The EPA just gave you objective evidence and then its opinion. That you don't like the enemy is your problem, but you should have no trouble of the evidence.

    Settled science is run by liberals, so I don't know whether to believe that either.

    The problem is, once you have decided that it's okay to lie to get what you want, people find out and then they don't believe you even when you're telling the truth.

    That's why global warming is a problem, there is no way for me to personally know whether there is any truth in it, because everyone involved has a motive to lie, and everyone pushing for it is a liberal, and therefore, known to be willing to lie.

    Evidence can be faked. I trust nothing put out by the EPA, since it is controlled by liberals.
