Hi Sovaka, It is true, they don't care! I talk from personal experience. I had 2 properties here in NW Louisiana where I had to leave because of
fracking. Water wells get contaminated/ruined. They slant drill and you can feel the power of the drilling...the house would vibrate. They aren't
supposed to drill within 500 feet of private residences yet they do. Here in Louisiana, there are constant problems of fish kills and such from
illegal dumping of the waste water. They have pumping stations/generating stations that make so much noise that sleep is impossible. The local news
stations covered folks complaints and legal action was brought about if I remember correctly, all to no avail. The oil/gas industry rules and that's
that. Gasland is a good/informative movie to watch. There are muffling type aparatus that could cut down on noise factors but they prefer not to spend
money on same.
Some residents actually do have flame come out of their water pipes/spickets. Seems to be lots more Cancer cases near fracking neighborhoods. One can
buy bottled water but if you water gardens with the water/bathe in it, you still get exposed. Is awful.
So many harmful chemicals
involved...Americinum, uranium, toulene, benzene, napthalene, methanol, formaldehyde, ethylene glycol, hydrochloric acid, glycol ethers, sodium
hydroxide, coalbed methane and more. That is only a partial list. The actual "cocktail" is a secret formula that they don't even have to reveal to the
govt. Nice one.
The power involved in the pressure exerted/drilling has to affect the ground/rock beds. There is a problem now in the GOM where the BP folks are
investigating siesmic activity occurring at an ancient volcano in the gulf. Too close for comfort relevant to the New Madrid. BP has been drilling
around the volcano. The volcano in the GOM is not all that far from New Orleans and the Bayou Corne fiasco. Thats another problem area due to
fracking perhaps as well. Can the fracking in/around the New Madrid set the thing off one has to wonder.
