Hormone-disrupting chemicals found in water at Colorado fracking sites
No hidden agenda here – right? In the Star-Telegram article below, the author, Neela Banerjee, states…
“The samples were not tested for specific fracking chemicals or for concentrations of chemicals.
Water from control sites in Colorado and Missouri where there is no fracking showed some EDC activity, but the levels were lower than in the water samples from the Garfield County sites, according to the study.”
If the samples were not tested for specific fracking chemicals or for concentrations of chemicals”, how did Banerjee conclude that “the levels were lower than in the water samples from the Garfield County sites”?
Does Banerjee’s contradiction here, call into question the entire article? We think it does. Please read the article below, then you decide.
‘Gasland Part II’ director uses hoax as evidence against fracking
Filmmaker and anti-fracking activist Josh Fox’s new film “Gasland Part II” uses a Texas environmentalist’s hoax to show hydraulic fracturing allegedly contaminating water.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that the controversial anti-fracking sequel features a scene where a Texas landowner is able to light the contents of his garden hose on fire. This is then used as evidence that nearby oil and gas operations caused the contamination.

Even more astounding is that by using this technique, America won’t run out of natural gas for 100 years or more! Time to break out the Champagne? Continue reading →
