But but but, it's perfectly safe.
Fracking water test leaves salty aftertaste | PennLive.com
Which is why you have to contain and treat it. This could be purely due to the salinity of the liquid returning from the depths of the well, and not any specific chemical in the original fracking solution.
I agree that the waste stream needs to be contained and treated. This is not however a need to ban the procedure entirely, which some people are trying to do.
You do what you like.
Not in my back yard.
If it were in your backyard you would be making money off it.
In New York they are passing regulations which seem fair, and are very stringent. This includes washback control, and areas near the watershed where it wouldnt be allowed.
but but but... I hate oil and this wouldn't serve my long term political desires of destroying western style life! I'm sorry, I was getting the strong feeling to channel my inner Manifold.
If it's a containment and/or disposal issue, then treat it as such.
Odd how NY is now considering allowing the practice, then NJ jumps on board outlawing fracking.
The laws will catch up to the practice/technology- give it time.
That's fine if you're sufficiently isolated. But what if your nearby neighbors allow fracking on their land?
So it's very important that laws governing this practice include adequate standards for testing and compensation for proximate contamination.
aren't we running out of fresh drinking water to water our crops and for us to drink?
are they using fresh drinking water when they begin this process?
and is there a way to turn it back in to drinkable water after it is processed?
is it still cost effective if everyone mining in this manner, secures and purifies the water after the process?
and can ALL the contaminated water be captured and none of it get in to our flowing underground drinking water?
In this country there is no real drinking water issue. The water used for fracking is minscule compared to the volume required for potable uses.
The layers you frack in typically are not water aquifiers, and if they were they would be "contaminated" by the natural gas that co-mingles with it.
I got bad news for the k00ks........better start getting real used to the idea of fracking. Gonna be happening s0ns..............BIG TIME.
