OOPS! That blows the leftists argument out of the water. :cool:



A government agency has contradicted claims made by environmentalists for the seventh time and found hydraulic fracturing doesn’t pose a grave threat to drinking water.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published a study Wednesday that examined 116 water wells across the energy-rich regions of Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. The study found nine examples of water contamination in the wells, but every case was either naturally occurring or not linked to fracking.

“Another day, another study confirming fracking is not a major risk to groundwater,” Steve Everley, a spokesman for Texans for Natural Gas, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“This report comes less than a year after the U.S. EPA’s landmark study that also found no evidence of widespread water pollution from fracking,” Everley said. “It’s time to put to rest the false claim that the shale revolution has threatened Americans’ drinking water supplies, because the science clearly does not support it.”

Ground water is always taken from the first few hundred feet of depth,
usually between 50 and 200 feet deep.

Fracking is always deeper than a thousand feet.

It's just not possible for the fracturing to reach that high.

The frackers are NOT going to spend
the substantially larger amount of money it would cost
for the additional explosives it would take
to fracture the extra hundreds of feet of rock
between the shale layer and the ground water.

Exactly correct!!!Fracking bypasses the upper aquifers, and seals off the upper layer so as not to bleed across to upper water layers where most water wells exist.

So what your saying is the government did something right the first time.   :rolleyes:

But had to do it 6 more time, talk about job secretary.

Like with Trump, they keep looking for a smoking gun.  So when does the new "study" start for fracturing?

It's like everything libs do, they beat it to death, then resurect it and beat it some more. As you can see from the graph, there is no way for contamination to occur, yet facts and pictures is never enough, just like AGW, they "FEEL" they have to be right.
