The "halliburton loophole" is there for a reason. If this process is as harmless as you claim, why is this language even necessary?
Amwell Township, PA is a prime example of something going horribly awry. People and animals started to get sick shortly after the fracking started. These people are screwed and have little recourse to the law. Not only is their health shot, but their property is worthless as well.
As for your evidence, check out the recent Duke University study that shows that water supplies within 1000 yards of drilling pads have 17 times more methane in them than average. . . .
Maybe your not familiar with the EPA study of the Pavillion. Wy area and the subsequent report which identified 2-BE, Squalene and Toluene in water samples but not nitrates which clearly indicates migration occurred sub-surface.Originally Posted by Mr Gently Benevolent
Lets use a smaller brush here! Its certainly evident that in some cases fluid has migrated into the water table during the process either by poor working practices on the surface or via faults in the shale and strata above. Disposal of fluids is not a separate issue at all as safe disposal is integral to the ongoing success and profitability of operations.
Along with weather forecasts, supply, material input costs and price my finely tuned RSS feed filters bad news on fracking its one of my sell triggers.

Vermont gov. signs fracking ban into lawMONTPELIER, Vt., May 17 (UPI) -- The governor of Vermont has signed a bill that bans hydraulic fracturing as a means to extract gas from underground deposits.http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2012/...0571337277432/
I say Frack away. Sorry Mark Ruffalo who is a great Hulk but, making trouble in my town. I'm not sure if it is safe or not but, I won't live long enough to know. Our energy concerns are urgent now. In 20 years when it is gone maybe we will be in better shape.
Edit: couldn't be arsed.

That's cool. Why poison the water supply? Smart move. Let greedy folks in NY and PA **** up their communities first.
