Thanks, Dick!!

Dick Cheney ... the man who tried to destroy our water tablewith a single piece of legislation.


Sad echo on anniversary of BP disaster as Chesapeake gas well blows in PA


Posted April 20, 2011 in Curbing Pollution

Environmental regulators and local officials in the Marcellus Shale hotbed of Bradford County, PA are saying “thousands and thousands of gallons of frack fluid [spilled] over containment walls, through fields, personal property and farms, even where cattle continue to graze” after Chesapeake Energy “lost control” over a gas well that in the process of being hydraulically fractured (or “fracked”) late last night.

The accident – which has eerie echoes to the tragic events surrounding the BP oil well blow-out that occurred one year ago today in the Gulf of Mexico – has resulted in the evacuation of local residents, as well as contamination of a nearby stream that feeds the nearby Susquehanna River. Reportedly, contaminated wastewaters flowed unabated from the well for over 12 hours following the blow-out.

It is chilling to hear phrases like “blow-out” and “efforts to kill the well” on this of all days. And it is a stark reminder that – one year after environmental disaster struck and 11 lives were lost – we are no closer to having the critically important kinds of protections in place to prevent this kind of event from happening either on- or off-shore.

Unless industry can find a way to stop these kinds of disasters from occurring, the public will continue to view oil and gas development with increasing skepticism. And places like New York, with its own share of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale, will be right to continue to say no to any new gas development, setting a national example as to how to take a cautionary approach in the face of inadequately regulated industrial technologies.

I wonder if the author uses natural gas to heat her home. Or heat her water?

I can't believe Dick Cheney went all the way down there and did that kind of sabotage.

In 2005, Congress passed an Energy Act that included (thanks to meddling by former Halliburton CEO Dick Cheney) an exemption for hydraulic fracturing (fracking) from the protections of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Clean Air Act. It's called the "Halliburton loophole" and it's a whopper.

FYI, Dick Cheney wasn't in Congress in 2005.

It sounds like he needs to read this environmentalist wacko website's blogs, and then he could sit around and do nothing until somone else fixes the problem (again)

Yeah, but you know he would have voted for it if he weren't so damn busy attaching "la-sers" to the heads of sharks
