    The coming Water War
This one is too important to ignore.  Parts of Texas are already going dry as fracking used up all the water.  http://www.chron.com/opinion/editorials/article/Texas-water-crisis-4739205.php   I live in a water-rich region but the fracking “boom” is just starting here so it may all be poisoned soon.  Nestle’s CEO does not think free water is a human right.  (Of course Nestle is stealing that water from the people who used to have it as their community supply.)  This isn’t just about Wall Street robbing us.  This is a straight fight for survival.  Without water we die.  If we’re too poor to buy the water we die. 
Watch the documentary Blue Gold for the whole story.  http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Gold-World-Water-Wars/dp/B001MWGZ6S/ref=sr_1_2?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1377008028&sr=1-2&keywords=blue+gold+world+water+wars

  3. With the ongoing drought many western states have outlawed rainwater collection.  And yet we continue to allow fracking and petro-chemicals to pollute what little safe clean water we have.  Over half the streams in our country are dead zones too polluted for fish to live in.  When does the insanity stop?

  9. " Politicians who supported the industry had tried for years to exempt fracking from the Safe Drinking Water Act, the 1974 law that regulates the injection of waste and chemicals underground. The EPA’s 2004 study was used to justify that effort. With the help of then-Vice President Dick Cheney — the former head of Halliburton — President George W. Bush’s landmark energy legislation, the 2005 Energy Policy Act, included a provision that prohibited the EPA from regulating fracking under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Regulation would be left to the states, many of which had underfunded agencies, looser standards and less manpower than the federal government. Halliburton, incidentally, pioneered hydrofracking technology…”

  10. Fracking Poisoning Cattle

    In the midst of the domestic energy boom, livestock on farms near oil- and gas-drilling operations nationwide have been quietly falling sick and dying. While scientists have yet to isolate cause and effect, many suspect chemicals used in drilling and hydrofracking (or “fracking”) operations are poisoning animals through the air, water or soil.

    In western Pennsylvania, an overflowing wastewater pit sent fracking chemicals into a pond and a pasture where pregnant cows grazed: Half their calves were born dead. Dairy operators in shale-gas areas of Colorado, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Texas have also reported the death of goats exposed to fracking chemicals.

    Drilling and fracking a single well requires up to 7 million gallons of water, plus an additional 400,000 gallons of additives, including lubricants, biocides, scale- and rust-inhibitors, solvents, foaming and defoaming agents, emulsifiers and de-emulsifiers, stabilizers and breakers. At almost every stage of developing and operating an oil or gas well, chemicals and compounds can be introduced into the environment.

    Energy companies are exempt from key provisions of environmental laws, which makes it difficult for scientists and citizens to learn precisely what is in drilling and fracking fluids or airborne emissions. And without information on the interactions between these chemicals and pre-existing environmental chemicals, veterinarians can’t hope to pinpoint an animal’s cause of death.
