They're not the only one who has observed that behavior though and you are not exactly an unbiased source here. I'd like to see the actual studies so I can make my own mind otherwise I'm going with the literal video demonstration and independent study commissioned by the government instead of taking some guys word on the internet, no offense.

No, I know I'm not considered unbiased, though I work in this company's IT department. I don't actually have anything to do with the drilling or anything of its kind itself. And hey, don't take my word for it, that's fine, I won't lose any sleep over it.

I'd just like to interject a slight note of sanity that the energy companies (at least not ALL of them) aren't just sitting there trying to figure out how to rape planet earth so they can squeeze 5 extra cubic feet of gas out of the ground. In the time since they started fracking, they've made remarkable strides in the process in keeping it cleaner, learning how to better absorb the slurry, etc.

Also, the rhetoric against fracking is 99% just that: rhetoric. It's a bunch of michael moore conspiracy theorists who've found something new to whine about while they wait for a non-democrat president to take office again.

I'll dig up the materials tomorrow and see if there are any links in it to online versions of the materials.
