South Texas enjoys major boom from oil fracking - Yahoo! News
You can't beat that with a stick.
Good stuff, thanks for posting. Eventually we're going to have to get off oil, but until the cleaner energy sources become economically viable without subsidies, we need to increase our oil and natural gas production.
eventually we will have to get off oil. but they were talking about billions of barrels just in that small region, so I think it's going to be a while before that occurs.
Hopefully they come out with rides that are run on natural gas.
Yea, good news!
A cancer epidemic is a small price to pay for an economic boon.
How the hell does natural gas cause cancer?
If you are talking about the fracking fluids, yes they have to make sure they collect them properly when they reach back to the surface. they also have to make sure the well pipe liner is structurally sound.
Hydro fracking can be done safely if rules are followed. THATS the job of regulators, using regulations that are both conservative when it comes to safety, and reasonable when it comes to scope.
Uh, let's see. Before the gas company drilled, no fire came out of the kitchen faucet. After they drilled, by coincidence, fire pours out of the kitchen faucet, but they are totally unrelated. The same thing happens again and again, everywhere they "fracture", but it's totally coincidence. Yea, I believe that. Uh huh.
Here we go again with the propaganda.
LOOK MA! I CAN LIGHT MY COALBED METHANE GAS IN MY WATER WELL ON FIRE! Nothing to do with hydraulic fracturing but it sure looks cool!
Breath it alot? Generally causes asphyxia, but hey! If you don't have any proof of anything, claim whatever you'd like!
