On Hooked on Frack?

Thanks JoeSixPack. People need to stop being fearful of things just because they don't understand them, Fracing is one of these. I work in the offshore oil and gas industry and I have been researching these fracing incidents for some time. It is my conclusion that fracing is safe for ground water as long as the process is done correctly as many land rig operations could compromise ground water when they are done negligently. If the fracing water is managed properly the risk is about the same as many other drilling ops. Companies such as Ecosphere technologies are already building frac water processing units for the field. This can be done safely and it will be.

Solar and wind are great ways to subsidize our energy consumption. Understand that we will NEVER meet our needs with solar and wind alone, our consumption currently is to large for that, forget about future forecast-ed use.

Dr. Dan my assertion is far from outrageous and I do actually have quite a fair bit of data in the form of incident case analysis. (FYI, I work in the drilling industry.) The vast majority of the highly publicized incidents have route causes in human error (as do the vast majority of most industrial incidents.) that could happen AT CONVENTIONAL DRILLING SITES TOO. IE, multiple cases of poor pit managment (pig pools of drilling fluid overflowing and contaminating ground water), casing and cement failure. These are not fracking specific failures.
Riceman, are you a geologist? 7 miles, that is how thick some of these "impermeable layers" are. 100% impermeable, doubtful...now neither you nor I are oil field geologists so maybe we should let the experts tell us how impermeable these layers are and impermeable to what?
DonMcDermott, research the "Halliburton clause." You'll love it...not really, only dick cheney does.

On the trail, what chemical compounds do you think are in crude oil? Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, ect. Remember what comes up out of the well when you are thinking about what is put down it. Hydraulic fracturing poses more or less the same risks as conventional drilling. Most of what we hear about fracking being dangerous is due to poor drilling practices not due to the fracking process.

are the old and new generation tacomas both being targeted? The 05+ is an entirely different vehicle than the earlier models.

Keep up the good work Chris! We got your back! and most of us who can actually look at an issue and analyze it realize that artificial reefs are a good thing especially ones as eco friendly as the reef ball! I remember telling you a while back that channel keepers could be allied on this as they have worked to plant kelp and make habitats in the past. Boy was i wrong! Apparently it is ok for them to plant kelp but to put in something for the kelp to grow on is just out of the question to them. Organizations like surf rider and channel keepers have their hearts in the right place but they need to look at the end outcome not the steps to get there. We want the same things. This should be a bi partisan effort.
