    What will they say? Who needs local drinking water? And the people being effected are just peons, so who gives a shit? Not most of the people on this board. I mean there is money to be made.

    "...in the case of this film, accuracy is too often pushed aside for simplicity, evidence too often sacrificed for exaggeration, and the same old cast of characters and anecdotes – previously debunked – simply lifted from prior incarnations of the film and given a new home in this one."

    Personally I think Gas is a clean and needed resource. The problem is how we explore and how we harvest it.

    The problem with this shale gas recovery is the enormous amount of water needed to crack it.

    Solve that problem and Bob's your uncle.

    Fail to solve that problem and the water table of PA is going to go to shit.

    Now if it is so safe, why all the exemptions from existing pollution laws?

    I think the jury's still out as to a direct correlation specifically targeted at a particular frac job that has resulted in the pollution of a fresh water table. If not, links would be appreciated such as documented cases. Documented as in DNR or EPA reports, not a video such as Gasland.

    I know that the state of Illinois has very specific guidlines for protecting groundwater including drilling, casing, and cementing procedures as well as folow up monitoring.

    As to exemptions- none that I'm aware of.
