Fracking is also in high demand in the Bakken natural gas field in southern Saskatchewan, where 1,000 wells have been drilled and fracked over the past five years. PSAC is predicting 1,935 new wells will be drilled there in 2010, and 300 new wells in Manitoba.
Ernst, a biologist and environmental consultant to the oil and gas industry, says EnCana “told us ‘we would never fracture near your water.’ But the company fracked into our aquifer in that same year .” By 2005, she says, “My water began dramatically changing, going bad. I was getting horrible burns and rashes from taking a shower, and then my dogs refused to drink the water. That’s when I began to pay attention.” More than fifteen water-wells had gone bad in the little community.

Wow it keeps getting weirder and wierder. 100 000 drum fish kill in Arkansas.
First, Arkansas experiences an unusally large swarm of earthquakes. Then 1000 birds fall dead from the air. And now we have a massive fish kill. Fish kills are not unusal. But one of this size in a riversystem is strange. It is thought that it is a disease. Maybe. But since it's drum fish. Maybe it has to do more with where they were schooling. Fish school at certain depths depending on what species they are. Drum like it deep. They are bottom feeders. If there was contamination of the water, whether natural or man-made, a heavy gas may have entered the water system and suffocated the fish. Just a thought.
What bothers me is that throughout history, many cultures rely on animal signs to foretell the future. Maybe these events are random and coincidental and maybe the die-offs are as a result of weather. But maybe they're not and there is a great change taking place under Arkansas. Maybe it has to do with the drilling. Maybe the drilling has set of a natural process. I love a good mystery. I'll update if I find anymore in my digging.
And on a lighter note.
Had to add, during the last month, Arkansas has had swarm earthquakes, a killer tornado, a mass bird-kill and a mass fish-kill. They may all be explainable and normal. But together they seem like a warning- an omen.
Nothing to worry about I'm sure. I guess I just like making mountains out of mole-hills. So for now I'll chalk it up to the randomness of existence and its infinate wonders. But one more strange event and I'll be making sure my cupboards are stocked.edit on 3-1-2011 by Robin Marks because: (no reason given)

Robin, the mystery deepens!
Toxicology reports are ruling out poisoning.
Surely CO2 or Methane would have showed up in their blood gasses.
