    Good drinking water is rare in Florida, but it does exist.

    Back in the 50s we drank water right out of the ground, 'hard' water, no softener.

    Soft water was much better.

    But that's beside the point.

    One poster has not yet responded to what normal limits on methane in water is. As soon as he gets back, we can proceed.

    In the meantime, flammable water is not good thing.

    Please take a step back and look at this objectively. Thousands of wells have been fracked throughout the United States. You've brought to my attention the case of one farmer in Texas, and one farmer in Wyoming (whose case was subsequently dropped, by the way).

    You know what, a solar panel could fall on your head and kill you too, you know.

    This is ridiculous.

    Part of me hopes you anti-frackers actually win. Then we can go back to using the only other energy source we have in abundance: COAL. And as the black smoke billows out of the smokestacks of corporations nationwide, I will laugh at the irony, just like I laugh every time I read about migrating birds that are being wiped out by windmills.
    Just FYI, coal does not burn black.

    Or are some sort of miracles involved?

    Have you seen any pictures or videos of tap water in flames? If not, you must be living under a rock.

    They don't frack where I live, but hundreds or thousands of homes have experienced this and documented it. Try "Gasland" if you're unaware.

    And I assume that you know that the chemicals injected in the process, through and near ground water deposits, are proprietary and neither approved by or known by the EPA and the Clean Water Act.
    Educate yourself on the drilling process. You are wrong.

    Well I'm educated enough about the drilling process to know that they prefer to drill vertically and are capable of drilling horizontally.

    Defending fracking is a pretty depressing situation in my book. I'm luck I'm not really impacted by it where I live, but I've seen pictures of the houses and water near sites out west. My son lives in Rifle CO and the water sux, if you know what I mean. He was used to good water here in Florida.

    Alternative energy sources need to be developed and refined. Fossil fuel is fading in some respects.

    They are against removing lead until or unless they can get the same results from unleaded fuel so yes they are against removing lead

    You don't "remove the lead" to get unleaded gasoline. You simply don't add any lead to the gasoline. Lead has always been an additive. Unleaded gas is a misnomer. It should be called non-leaded gasoline.
