Unfortunately that movie was mostly all lies and has been exposed for gross misrepresentations on numerous counts.

Ive looked into fracking (both sides of the argument), the pro fracking sides seem to have little good ones but from what I found if done right drinking water shouldn't get contaminated but the companies cut corners and costs and than all hell breaks loose there, plus that doesn't even factor in for the massive damage done from the holding reservoirs for the toxic water and the habitat destruction caused by the setting up of these wells, most notably for the sage grouse a bird in decline already

Frac'ing is already taking place under homes. There doesn't need to be a law.

We frac in neighborhoods ALL OVER north Texas in the Barnett Shale.
I've been doing it for seven years now. There are folks who have
wells in their backyard--you have to drive within fifty feet of their
homes to get to the well site.

I KNOW the chemicals that go down-hole. You can walk right up to
the barrel and read the label--OSHA REQUIRES IT. All hazardous
chemicals on a job site MUST BE DISCLOSED to everyone that might
come into contact with them.

Anyway, it is mostly water and sand that is used to frac, some soap,
and very little diluted amounts of chems.

Fracking is not that big of a deal.

The (hidden elephant) in the room you folks should be discussing
are the waste-water disposal sites.

And I'll tell you why...

When frac'ing a well generally one or two hundred trucks of water
are used to go down hole to fracture the shale. Fine sand is mixed with
the water to hold small cracks open in the shale to allow the
natural gas to escape back up the hole. Almost all of the water and
chemicals come back up immediately---we take a hundred trucks of
water to a site, and a few days later we go back and remove a hundred
trucks of water from the same site. Frac'ing is over.

BUT

A waste water site will take 60 to 100 trucks of waste-water A DAY
FOR MANY YEARS. There are literal LAKES of water under these disposal
sites

....but nobody ever mentions them

And BTW these disposal sites are sending the waste-water down hole
at nearly the same pressure as a fracture job. The difference is that
on a fracture job most of that pressure is released--at a disposal site
it nevers is...
