USA Fracking Stories

Fracking Industry Pumping Toxic Wastewater Into Coastal Waters
November 15, 2013 - ecoWatch -
Citing the use of hazardous hydraulic fracturing chemicals and the release of oil industry wastewater off California’s coast, the Center for Biological Diversity yesterday called on the Coastal Commission to halt fracking for oil and gas in state waters and press for tighter regulation of fracking in federal waters.

Texas Frackers Sue Victim of Their Water Pollution for $3 Million for Exposing Them
November 12, 2013 - TopWorldPost - Fracking outfit Range Resources slapped Texas homeowner Steve Lipsky with a $3 million defamation suit to bully him into silence about his polluted water but Lipsky is fighting back. Lipsky is a wealthy man, not used to being bullied, but the frackers think they can use their control of the state of Texas to bulldoze him.
They have bought off the Texas Railroad Commission that supposedly regulates fracking in Texas, and intimidated the USEPA into inaction so they don’t intend to let minor matters like safe drinking water, private property rights and the first Amendment get in the way of their pursuit of profits.

Fracking Disposal Wells Pose Challenges In Texas
March 29, 2013 - npr.org - The amount of wastewater being disposed of in Texas wells has skyrocketed with the spread of fracking, to nearly 3.5 billion barrels in 2011 from 46 million barrels in 2005, according to data from the Railroad Commission of Texas, the state’s oil and gas regulator.
On average, companies in Texas dispose of 290 million barrels of wastewater — equivalent to about 18,500 Olympic-size swimming pools — each month.

New York Fracking Ban In Towns Upheld By Second Judge
ALBANY, N.Y., Feb 24 2012 (Reuters) - A New York state judge on Friday upheld an upstate community's ban on gas drilling, marking the second victory this week for opponents of the drilling method known as fracking.

Shale Gas Revolution
November 3, 2011 NYTimes - A few years ago, a business genius named George P. Mitchell helped offer such a gift. As Daniel Yergin writes in “The Quest,” his gripping history of energy innovation, Mitchell fought through waves of skepticism and opposition to extract natural gas from shale.
The method he and his team used to release the trapped gas, called fracking, has paid off in the most immense way. In 2000, shale gas represented just 1 percent of American natural gas supplies. Today, it is 30 percent and rising.
 

Questions About the Safety of Fracking
November 8, 2011 NYTimes - As the shale gas rush has exploded over the last decade, so has the number of reports of public health and environmental problems. The New York Times and others have uncovered problems such as radioactive fracking waste, drinking water contamination, air pollution and more.
