    NJ Senate Environment Committee Considers Ban On Shipping, Transporting, Treating Or Disposing Of Wastewater From Hydraulic Fracturing « CBS New York

    I find this funny as alot of the fracking fluids are petroleum distillate products, and New Jersey is the biggest refining state on the east coast.

    They better word it right if they go though with it, or they may end up shutting down thier entire petrochemical industry.

    Expert: Wastewater well in Ohio triggered quakes
    Mon Jan 2,`12 – A northeast Ohio well used to dispose of wastewater from oil and gas drilling almost certainly caused a series of 11 minor quakes in the Youngstown area since last spring, a seismologist investigating the quakes said Monday.

    I don't see what's funny about that.

    By your logic any state that has a nuclear power plant should be fine with becoming Yucca mountain.
