Nebraska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission hearing on an out-of-state company's application to export its toxic fracking wastewater into Nebraska, moving 80 truckloads carrying 10,000 barrels per day of pollution destined to be dumped into a disposal well in Sioux County — transferring all the risk onto Nebraska farmers and ranchers.




Good on this man !

I feel the same about tap water and try to avoid it as much as possible ,even if it's boiled I still have a hard time drinking it .

What do you think folks ?

Of course that could be 3 cups of "anything" so in the real world, we would have to have some obvious protocols for this to walk the line for real.

yeah that was his point he did say "I i made up my own mixture " i believe . But he also said that the fracking Chems were secret ?

I so here we have a board telling everyone "oh it's ok the water /waste is safe " yet they wont disclose what chems are exactly in it .

I don't even do that , Where i live their is a water brewery that i take my glass jugs to once every week and have them filled up.

the water is filtered and stripped and restructured to its natural state, with Alkalinity ,basically they revive it .

That guy...is NOT small. I didn't watch the video, but I imagine if he had raised his voice, the commissioners would have shat 3 cups full of that into their pants on the spot!

He should have forced them to drink the water, after all, that's what will happen to them/us whether they like it or not. They don't care about the poor people in their way, as long as they can dispose of their toxins and profit they will do just what they want with no reprocussions. Time to make a stand people!!!!!!!
By the way, Doctors in many hospitals know about the symptoms and effects of fracking, but are bound by the powers that be, to not disclose to the patient what they are suffering from. Or they will suffer the wrath of their own system. How does that grab you?

I'm not sure I've ever seen a panel so speechless. Good for the rancher. The long term repercussions of fracking is scary. Nothing good is ever going to come of it. It's a hot topic in Oklahoma right now. Seismologist with USGS are linking it to the increased frequency of earthquakes. Some ranchers in Colorado and I'm sure elsewhere are dealing with increases of still born cattle. There's a multiple of reasons to long to list as to why fracking is bad. Hopefully the gas industry pulls their heads out of the sand before it's to late. I believe the public is going to have to force that hand though.

They're panel members, but they are also still members of the public too.

They could have spoken if they'd chose to..but what do you say when faced with what he gave them, at least,. say it without getting lynched.

Fracking doesn't cause groundwater contamination, I don't even think it's possible.



Doctors in many hospitals know about the symptoms and effects of fracking


The symptoms and effects on what?

Can you explain how fracking doesn't cause groundwater contamination? Or why you do not believe it to be possible?

Fracking takes place so far down from any shallow water aquifer, it's close to impossible. I don't even think there's any case of fracking being the cause of water contamination.

There isn't....But when the sewing circle gets together to bash fracking, "my faucet lights on fire"!!! Guess what? Methane is common in MANY areas that fracking doesn't even take place....But nobody cares to hear it! They all say fracking is bad and have absolutely ZERO idea of what fracking even is or what takes place....

I'm confused about this.
Testing of water wouldn't cost that much if the community got together, so why don't they take samples from across the region, and around the fracking sites, and have it tested themselves?

This way they will all know what exactly is in it, without any meddling from the state, and without any corruption of the results. Once they have this data for themselves, gathered and proved by themselves, they should have absolutely no problem convincing the entire community that this is bad.

Once you have convinced the entire community and shown them the truth, all you need to do is march on those politicians and give them your opinion, with the warning that if they do not act to safeguard the community and continue to WILLFULLY risk public health in exchange for profits, they will be arrested.

This would maybe cost a couple of thousand dollars at the absolute most, a small price to pay for a community to have unarguable proof that they can use to protect themselves against this.

Only one problem with this experiment...The people complaining about fracking - A. Don't know what fracking is - B. Don't know what casing is. C. Follow the sheeple complaining, just to have something to complain about...

When you get people together to spend money on something they know nothing about, nobody will do it because they have no clue what the process is, how it is done or why they think it is harmful...

There are plenty of experiments done by the fracking companies to ensure nothing is leaking...They take water samples, they take plenty of precautions to make sure their operations are done to safety regulations....The state regulators are even involved, EPA is down their throat all the time...They even will go out to locations to ensure things are done properly, but nobody wants to hear about that....They think they could be included in making a quick buck by saying someone messed up their something and have no other information other than dollar signs in their eyes for that quick buck!

Does anyone have any idea how much water is used during the fracking process? If you were to pee in a swimming pool, then fill the pool with fresh water, would you not drink the water? That water would be almost 100% clean after the pee is diluted with the water...Look up how much water is used on a site and then just try to think for yourself once you find out....You may surprise yourself
