It takes 1000 gallons of water to produce 1 GALLON of ethanol! How green is that Judeye & Cade? So the 10 billion gallons of ethanol now required to be blended in our gasoline requires how much water Judeye & Cade? Let's see how your math skills are because you are failing science!

Judeye...your rationale is so flawed it is nonsensical. This method for extraction of oil and gas has been around for the past 10 years. Over 100,000 wels have been. developed in this manner in 30 states. Listening to the like of Yoko Ono and the other liberal activists is akin to listening to the flat earth society.
DKexpat..No this type of drilling is NOT the same method. Overall, it might look like it, but this is a new type of drilling...that has only been going on for a relatively short time. It is still being developed. The Health impact of this type of deep drilling, with clusters of many wells on one pad, going down and then horizontally, using millions of gallons of water for one well pad...has NOT been thoroughly conducted.
It is the first time the industry has combined several techniques in order to produce the gas. As such, there has been far too little research on the health implications, the dangers to our water and the risks to our quality of air, noise or light pollution.
For instance, the amount of water needed to frack an old well was abut 80,000 gallons. This new unconventional drilling requires 5- 10 MILLION gallons of water. Right there..with water being so valuable for life...should give us all reason to pause...and to think is this what we really want in our area

The science behind fracking (hydraulic fracturing) is the same whether the wellbore is vertical or horizontal - - sand (the proppant) + water (the non-compressible medium) + chemicals (the secret sauce).
Steiner is right in that the service companies have no secrets from each other - they've all analyzed each others' compounds. The difference is the mix, pumping rate, pressure gradients, sand grain size, etc. as determined by petroleum engineers and geologists.
For every wellbore failure, there's thousands or tens of thousands of successes. People die during surgery, so should we ban all surgery? People drown in swimming pools, so should we ban them?
Ya gotta do a little risk:reward thinking, and think about where this country would be without hydrofracking.

Women Scientists who have done what Stiener has not because he is a man, They have Won a Nobel Prize in their scintific field.Jocelyn Bell Burnell: She is an astrophysicist who discovered the first radio pulsars. This accomplishment earned her a Nobel Prize.
Linda B. Buck: She is an American biologist who has made a noteworthy contribution to the research on olfactory system. In 2004, she won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
Lise Meitner: Born in Austria, Lise Meitner was a Swedish physicist who worked in the fields of radioactivity and nuclear physics. She was a part of the team that discovered nuclear fission and was one of the potential winners of the Nobel Prize.

Next step in the evolution of mankind.....harness the energy of the Sun. Tell me I am wrong Stiener, if you say I am, then you are wasting your time trying to harness the energy in the atmosphere, created by the Sun.
Sheldon said ," aromatics like benzene and toluene are in medicines and protein too". No crap Sheldon, how come they have limit on the amounts in those meds set by the goverment.
whoopi do , you visited a plant with liquid natrual gas. So did I. Does not mean a thing about you or fracking, Why bring this here ??? oh, word comprehensionnnnnnn.

Any chemical in excessive amounts can kill you. YOU know that. To much water can kill you. You know that. Excessive chemicals they use in fracking are toxic.
google any of my posts and you will be taken to the report yourself. Send them a letter teling them how stupid they are,ok.
Tesla had it right !!!!!
2 Agrees | 3 Disagrees | Report Abuse »
****, I put info exactly as they re from EPA reports and sheldon mocks them. ANd te unidentified chemicals is what the gas company call them ace. Why, because they did not want the goverment to know. And you have no idea what you are taking about.
so cade, so you dont misunderstand me by i wont let you down. My project now is to make electricity from the air glow layer. A kind of what tesla did in colorado springs, but on a portable scale. It will take some effort as i have to make the air glow layer manifest itself at ground level. i will have to get a liberal or a woman, for help ! LOL.yes, i have constructed part of the machine , the rest will be built. tesla, my idol of idols gave me the clues along with quantum physics. So you say, sheldon, too many posts , foxnews, bush,or whatever makes you feel good as an ignorant poster person.say unidentifiable chemical if you want too ! make me feel good ! I just love ignorant people.
so cade, I, the local sheldon cooper, aka as steiner the great scientist asks you and the other posters here, well the ones against fracking the same question. What are we going to replace the quadrillions of btus with from hydrocarbons ? gal scientific power, liberal drivel ? I think not cade. once again, give it your best shot. Your a poor shooter, farmer , poster, science guy etc. in short you dont know much. leave it to guys like steiner, the genius sheldon types. i wont let you down.i have already saved 10,000 lives and climbing.all due to fabulous , fabulous chemicals and analytical labs. All guys by the way gals in the process, not a gal in the bunch.
it is obvious to me that nearly all the posters are ignorant of what the chemical industry does. The libs think and say you did not build that. hmm, if the chemical industry and its chemists did not , exactly who did ? they think that whats on the road or even in a lab is unidentifiable. well thats not true at all folks. you folks remind me of the casey anthony protesters when she was found innocent of killing her kid. when I saw the lab print out and there were no peaks for the chemical they wanted, i told people casey is innocent. and she was.the ignorant folk, like the libs here howled and howled. they just dont know any science. emotion is their science.

more info for the unlearned cade.I visited a plant where they had 20,000 gallons of non odorized LNG for use as a propellant and solvent in a chemical system. this is for judeye who said, how we gonna know if there is a gas leak . Since the plant was in a residential neighborhood, elaborate snifffers were in the plant to sniff hydrocarbons .since you cant smell unodorized gas and people were using it filling containers, the threat was real. Science had the answer even if the stupid liberals dont believe it. it would have been much worse than the 30 year old small propane blast in Buffalo, 20, 000 gallons folks, just itching to blow.
hey ignorant cade, the LWV just had published that we should consider the banning of the fracking water on area roads. too hazardous for the limited minds of the women i think.NURTURE and their bosom. Then i posted what exactly is on the roads and you say again I post too many things. But thats what life is about cade and you clueless gals. Life CANNOT be made non hazardous, no matter how hard you try. It s impossible folks.

noew ignorant cade mocks my many posts. first the libs say they want science , real science. judeye is good as saying that. then I post real science as it cannot be said in just a few posts and the liberals howl. You posted too much !or they say foxnews, the koch bros or other such nonsenese. just like on duck dynasty, you can have any opinion you want as long as it agrees with a liberal. i have seen enough of their posts here, like cronigs and his mocking my mother as proof. we just have to agree with you liberals, stupid as you are ! you wont see such stupidity in the analtycal realm. the machines tell the story, not a bunch of mocks disguised as science , like here !

hey cade aromatics like benzene and toluene are in medicines and protein too. they are in sex hormones. they are in fact ubiquitous , thats everywhere for you unlearned people. I personally love toluene and have made or used probably millions and millions of gallons of product with it . It too is more useful than a liberal or a LWV member. kaput on that cade. chlorides and sulfates. well sulfate in your car battery turns the crank. chlorides are valuable in the petrochem industry. chloride salts in medicine too. Once again cade, you show extreme ignorance. can you do nothing but parrot like judeye does ?
hey ignorant cade, what the hades do you think makes all the chemical stuff we take for granted ? it is all based on carcinogens, every bit of it. from acrylics to urethanes, all is highly carcinogenic.even those little white cups in the restaurants is styrene monomer, a carcinogen. the sky has not fallen cade. Sewer plants overwhelmed ? We NEVER saw that before. In heavy rains, many plants get overwhelmed due to seepage and illegal hook ups. slowly they try and fix this.kaput again cade. get the picture ? you aint very learned of what the industry does or what you take for granted.
ignorant cade is at it again. he is calling me sheldon i guess. what a complement. For the umpteenth time unlearned cade. there is NO CHEMICAL THAT IS UNIDENTIFIABLE. NONE. Only to ignorant minds such as the LWV or liberals are such things possible. I have worked in industry for 4 decades. i know what the analytical labs and chemists can do. Given time and money, they will and can ID any chemical that could ever be made. Only ignorant people like you cade would say, we CANT ID IT! THE SKY IS FALLING. you kaput on that , cade. did ya understand this ? The lbs have multi million dollars in equipment staffed by well trained chemists. just like on Bones tv series.
The report also faulted companies for secrecy and for sometimes “injecting fluids containing chemicals that they themselves cannot identify.”
The investigation also found that 14 of the most active hydraulic fracturing companies in the United States used 866 million gallons of hydraulic fracturing products, not including the water that makes up the bulk of all fracking fluid. More than 650 of the products contained chemicals that are known or possible human carcinogens, which are regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act or listed as hazardous air pollutants, according to the report.

In 2005, President George W. Bush exempted oil and gas companies from federal regulations designed to protect U.S. drinking water, and most state oil and gas regulatory agencies don’t require companies to report the volumes or names of the chemicals they use in the fracking process, chemicals such as benzene, chloride, toluene and sulfates.

Fracking also poses other hazards, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council, which warns that besides contaminating drinking water with toxic and carcinogenic chemicals, fracking could trigger earthquakes, poison livestock, and overburden wastewater systems.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a least nine different chemicals commonly used in fracking are injected into oil and gas wells at concentrations that pose a threat to human health.
And remeber to write 200 paragraphs to respond,lol.
