Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
great diary, dan. fracking is unbelievably shortsighted and brutally ecocidal.

but what's the problem with flames coming out the faucet, now the bottled water truck will run on gas to deliver?

and if you get tired of toluene in your tea, benzene in your bathtub, at least you have gas to drive away to some pure unpolluted land, right?

head. keyboard. groan...

Thanks melo.  It's a tough issue to raise awareness on because for those not in the drilling areas it can seem very remote - even uninteresting.  But yeah, even bottled water has to come from somewhere...
