Pinedale Mesa Chemical Waste Fracking Pond, Sublette County, WY ~ Don’t worry Pennsylvania, the water is fine.
The assault on American rivers and water supplies continues in Pennsylvania, where gas drillers are allowed to dump their chemical-laden fracking water into rivers. Elected officials and drilling companies tell concerned citizens not to worry, the water is safe. What is the role of government if not to regulate this industry? Let’s go through this one more time – natural gas drilling is a very dirty business that involves pumping nasty chemicals deep into the earth, and PA doesn’t require disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing (fracking). See “Frack Me” on this blog. The Federal government needs to take the fracking chemical issue out of states hands and regulate the industry. Wasn’t the BP gusher like five minutes ago?
