    If you think fracking is drilling, then you certainly need to educate yourself.

    You can't have a rational discussion with enviro-whackos. Not on climate change, not on fracking, not on anything. They seem to consider human beings to be parasites on the planet. Makes you wonder why they don't do their part to free the planet of parasites by taking themselves out of the gene pool.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Screw you. I'm no enviro-whako. I know what it takes to frack for oil, and the cost is water, millions of gallons worth. That means something in economical terms. What do you think it means?

    Eco-nazis are going to dream up whatever lie sounds good and run with it.

    In Loving County, we drilled into the Santa Rosa acquifer, which is straight salt water. Its not as apocolyptic as you make out.
    this is not about contaminating water sources...it is the amount of water needed for the fracking process. Not every drill site has a brackish water source to use. Even the Santa Rosa aquifer is being considered for desalination for west Texas water use.

    If you don't know Texas has state-wide water problems, then you did not spend all that much time here. It's not apocalyptic, but commodities are gonna be a whole lot more expensive.

    Fracking is just one concern, but ignoring it is asinine.

    You know why I'm a wacko, cause I want clean water to drink...I'm wacko that way.

    Would you like to have a sit down rational discussion while you and others call me whacko and insinuate what you think I don't know, when I know better than that? Fracking is causing earthquakes in Oklahoma! Oklahoma, where there have not been earthquakes and no threat for years. Yes, I know my geology. The best threat from earthquakes close to Oklahoma is in Arkansas.

    Yes, these new occurrences are from fracking. And yes, they eat up millions of gallons of water. I don't understand how you think this is funny in some way or that I am joking. I pay for water, and I do not wish to see water used as an external cost, paid by you and I, in order for them to keep fracking and causing earthquakes. Is that funny to you?

    Earthquakes are caused by the shifting of tectonic plates. What's funny to me is to hear someone loudly proclaiming that they know their geology while shrieking that fracking makes tectonic plates shift.

    To date, there is no scientific certainty about any connection between fracking and oil wells. But that doesn't keep those that are unscientific from making unscientific absolute statements with the certainty that comes from ignorance.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Blocking off the upper water zone has nothing to do with preventing contamination; it was about commercial wells not producing water from the top water zone in an attempt to conserve that zone for public use. Read my posts more carefully.
