Are you sure you were able to read the full report, understand what it says, what was investigated and write a reply in under 15 minutes? At least a minimum of research is necessary, otherwise you're bound to jump to conclusions and possibly make unsubstantiated claims.

I am waiting for someone with a brain to explain to me this:
The average private water well depth in Pennsylvania is less than 200 feet.
A fracking well is over 5000 feet.
How is it that chemicals used at that depth contaminate a well 4800 feet ABOVE that, when fluids follow a course of less resistance, and generally DOWN?

This topic is one of those that strikes a nerve with me. I understand what fracing is and all of the nuances that go with fracing a well. That is why i am not sure why everyone is jumping to the conclusions. It has been proven that it was injection wells are causing earthquakes earthquake.usgs.gov... here is a link from the usgs.
Is there a problem with the way we dispose of waste water. Yes that is obvious in my opinion. Although it is not fracing that is causing the problem people still jump on the band wagon. Sorry for the rant. lol
I agree changes need to be made but not making educated decisions and pulling information of bias sites on the web is not acceptable.
By the way i'm not a fan of the oil business. I just think that we should be correct with our accusations.
