Fracking Responsibly

    I understand they are even using the killer chemical DHMO. This chemical, used in fracking, kills thousands annually and causes billions in property damage. Its use should be regulated so that it is used only under the supervision of certified technicians.

  • Why not use seawater?

    Can that work?

    There’s a lot more water east of the Mississippi.

    why not add a tracer to the frack fluid, so we can assign groundwater contamination to a co.’s fracking – or is that too expensive, too intrusive /sarcasm ? Medical companies do it all the time to track down and limit failures – and to learn from them.
