Outrageous interview by Phelim McAleer on Colorado NPR

1: "Josh Fox misrepresented things in Gasland"

Yes, he used a graphic of a sample lease instead of his actual one. So?

2: "The flaming water was not from fracking"

Word Games: Since fracking is always preceded by drilling vertical wells,
it's hard to know or prove which activity caused the problem. But it is certain
that gas drilling activity caused the migration of explosive levels of methane
into Mike Markham's well, as well as thousands of other cases.

3: "The water in Dimock is fine."

It's hard for me to know how to respond to this.
There are dozens of families in Dimock who still have
water problems. Either on replacement water,
have expensive treatment systems, and a few coping
with water problems who have never received any help.

Also the focus on Dimock is a distraction. The problems
are not just in Dimock, but nearly everywhere Fracking
has occurred.

4: Fracking has never caused water contamination. Or gas drilling.
They are the same.

How can this guy keep repeating these lies?

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
