Bummer: Report Finds Fracking Chemicals Didn’t Pollute Pa. Waters

Despite all the yammering of Liberals, Democrats, and Warmists, virtually every talking point regarding hydraulic fracturing goes down in flames

(CBS) A landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, shows no evidence that chemicals from the natural gas drilling process moved up to contaminate drinking water aquifers at a western Pennsylvania drilling site, the Department of Energy told The Associated Press.

After a year of monitoring, the researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas trapped deep below the surface stayed thousands of feet below the shallower areas that supply drinking water, geologist Richard Hammack said.

Although the results are preliminary — the study is still ongoing — they are a boost to a natural gas industry that has fought complaints from environmental groups and property owners who call fracking dangerous.

Look, I’ll be the first to say that the companies need to be careful as they drill in any manner, doing what they can to avoid environmental pollution. Basic safety. But, the anti-fracking wackjobs are irrationally unhinged over the issue, refusing to look at facts, figures, studies, instead going with their typical un-founded scareathon stories that “could happen”. But never seem to.

    But, when you pump your toxic genetic mutating sludge in to our water tables, where else is that stuff going to go, but into our dead baby’s mouths!!!!

    If you are for fracking, you are for dead baby’s mouths.


    It’s a conspiracy to create real life X-men through the use of fracking of our gene pool. YOU DOUBT ME?!!? Look at how science has made Star Trek come true. And now….. X-MEN!!

    nuff said. my proof has been met.

    Some gene pools have been polluted for generations, apparently.
    It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to stop them reproducing.
