    What chemicals?

    The water wells were tested, including the one couple in the film suing the oil company and waving a brown jug around. The EPA found no contamination. The water was perfectly fine and safe to drink. The people who were suing were not happy their water was safe to drink. They were pissed because that meant they had no case. All this hysteria about fracking is made up lies. This is technology that has been around since the 1940s. It's perfectly safe.

    The green movement is dying out. It's a total joke. Green Energy stimulus scams. All these green companies going bankrupt. Global warming a laughable hoax. The scientists with egg on their faces after having been caught manipulating data. Fearmongering only goes so far. There are over 500 chemicals in a cup of coffee. Half of those are carcinogens. Let's outlaw coffee. Everyone run for your lives. The sky is falling.

    I actually agree with you fracking is not 100% safe. But for the most part it is safe. Are there issues yes. We have been fracking for over 50 years here in Kern county and utilizing steam recovery there have been issues most all quite minor resolved fairly quickly. Oil companies believe it or not DONT want problems, it screws with their bottom line. Getting sued costs a lot of money.

    Re: 'Gaslandí Director Confronted on NPR Show

    The biggest problem with fracking is that by using it we can become energy self reliant. Lots of groups don't want that to happen.

    Leftists don't because it stands in the way of destroying America. Environmental wacko's don't because they think if people should live, they should live like cave man (minus themselves of course). Foreign oil companies don't because every gallon of oil we produce, places price pressure downward on theirs. Green energy groups don't want it for obvious reasons. Many elected democrats don't like it because they get big bucks from the listed groups.

    The average man or woman in America or working stiff, benefits from fracking. But that makes no difference to those listed above. And all of them will tell any lie, spread any half truth rumor and spend money to try to stop fracking to advance their cause even though it puts the average American at disadvantage.

    There are no freshwater aquafers at 14,000 feet.

    "Frac'ing" fractures rock formations. Aquafers are made up of clay formations.

    Keep trying. One day, when you stop defying geological fact and the laws of physics, you might come up with something half way correct.

    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."
