LOL Of The Day!!!! EPA Says Fracking Not Harmful To Drinking Water!!!

Well, we all already knew this.  And, if even the EPA can’t invent some bs to attack fracking, then we can be doubly assured the technique safe and fine.

FRACKING BACKING? EPA says no ‘widespread’ harm to drinking water

You can read the story at the link provided.  Here’s an excerpt ….

…. “Today’s study confirms what we already know. Hydraulic fracturing, when done to industry standards, does not impact drinking water,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said in a statement. “States have been effectively regulating hydraulic fracturing for more than 40 years and this study is evidence of that.”

In New York state, the EPA report already was fueling calls to rescind the state’s fracking ban.

“I fully expect Governor Cuomo to reverse his previous decision to ban fracking which was based upon controversial scientific studies and made to appease far left environmentalists,” Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., said in a statement. “Hardworking New Yorkers deserve the job opportunities and economic growth fracking has clearly produced in other states, including neighboring Pennsylvania.”

The Business Council of New York State also put out a statement Thursday urging the ban’s reversal. Other states, meanwhile, have gone in the opposite direction from New York. Texas recently approved a bill barring local ordinances against fracking. …..

Heh!  New York lunatics!

    I still believe further study is warranted however, of it’s effect on the upright sturdiness of Guam.

    This really is not news. In the US, we have been fracking for over a century, and there has never been a documented contamination of aquifers or drinking water, ever. It has been a mainstream practice for over 50 years now and used in over a million wells. Not one case of contamination.

    Head of the EPA?

    And again?

    I suspect one thing which was unsaid is that geothermal energy also requires fracking.

    Given the epic faceplanting of solar and wind technology the climateers are running out to energy options, so effectively killing geothermal by a fracking ban would be contraindicated.
