You've heard industry people say 100 times
"Fracking has NEVER caused water contamination".
This is an attempt to DECEIVE you.
from cradle (seismic) to grave (completion).
However, when the industry shills say "fracing", they mean
ONLY THE COMPLETION stage.
First, it is well established fact that Gas Drilling contaminates private water wells:
- The Duke Study shows methane contamination in private water wells is a function of proximity to gas wells:
- PA DEP's own determination letters that gas drilling has impacted MANY private water wells in PA.
Here are just a few: http://www.damascuscitizensforsustainability.org/pa-dep-determination-letters/
- Dr. Ingraffea cites data from PA DEP, Southwest Energy, and Schlumberger that
well casing failures causing fugitive methane is common and pervasive:
But in late 2012, "CABOT DONE MESSED UP!"
Why? because while Cabot was prohibited from drilling within 9 square miles around Dimock,
they were still allowed to frack.
And they did frack-- a couple of wells. AND IT CAUSED WATER CONTAMINATION!
So yes, HERE IS PROOF that water contamination IS CAUSED by both drilling AND FRACKING!
Thanks to Ray Kemble, Vera Scroggins, Craig Stevens, and Jay Wilcox for the video.
May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
