I would be interested in knowing what they are pumping into these wells. A few years ago a young man did two documentaries on the natural gas, oil
and shale industry. In my younger days i had worked in the oil and gas industry and I found his documentaries amazing.
Mainly because this gutsy young man was stepping up and telling some nasty truths about the industry. Some of which got some people hurt. It was
one of the reasons I left the industry. The nasty little, actually big secret of oil and gas companies. Chemicals....
For years no one knew all the nasty stuff they were pumping into wells all over this country. And still today this continues to happen everywhere.
Companies putting all kinds of stuff in the drilling mud or the sludge we often called it. Many work over or old kill wells, wells no longer
producing, we're filled with this stuff. We were often exposed to all kinds of stuff and they never told any of us. A tool pusher would get wind
of it and complain and you might never hear from him again.
Quite often this material would be transported to us from a company our last republican vice president had hooks all up in. All the last republicans
benefitted from this industry greatly. They all knew the nasty secret.
It was legalized chemical disposal that no one knew about. For years they just flat refused to tell anyone the nasty list of chemicals used in these
wells and drilling process.
Often an unscheduled truck would show up and inject a truck load into the mix. Thanks to a caring old tool pusher who was leaving and gave me the
information I already suspected i left. Years later, I happened to watch these documentaries and it brought things back up in my memory and I
think help explain some of the health issues over the years.
Think about this folks, they take the oil and gas out, they fill that space. It changes allot of things, people turn on their faucets and their
water burns. They lose their hair, get cancer, die. It is happening in neighborhoods and land all over this country. I live out in country on a
few acres, but the neighbors might have sold their mineral rights and I could do nothing to stop it or stop what they put into the ground.
I hope someone can help me remember the name of documentaries about the industry. It happens everywhere but it highlights up through northeast and
Texas and colorado. Everyone should watch. I was witness to this. They made billions and still are. Wait till they bring an earthquake or
burning water to your neighborhood, then you will say it is not worth it but it is too late, the damage is done.
This is a subject everyone should take a stand on, we only have one earth and so much fresh water. Once they put this stuff in the ground it can't
be undone. Guess how many carcinogens they use, allot, no one really knows for sure. They change the process and for more years than I can
Remember they refused to tell anybody lol.
The documentaries were also rerun on hbo if I remember. Sorry bout my memory.
Like to hear the OP add this to this thread. Do you know what gets pumped into the wells or is used in the drilling mud in your area. Frak quakes
are just one of the issues.
