In other words, You just want to hear pap from the brainwashed masses. Realistically, there is only one way to stop these destroyers of the environment. ...Extermination! (Do unto others as they would do unto you only do it first!)

What in the world is a microerm? I'm pretty sure that's a typo.

Radiation is found in nature... maybe they should just extract and put back in the ground?

Keep up the good work of bringing awareness to this planet, we all have nowhere else to go!

They'll send the radioactive poisons to one of the two fracking waste wells in New York instead!

There is no "free energy", Commies. It costs much to locate sources, drill, build infrastructure etc

Wait till Russia develops technology to extract shale gas - this type of story'll disappear from RT!

A good documentary on the subject is Gas Land.

Waste willl end up in a community of color. It will contaminate the ground water. Internal emmiters

And just because one waste site rejects it doesn't mean the issue is SOLVED, we're just one planet.

It's not "10x greater than" the allowed amount. It's 9.6x AS MUCH AS it. Big difference in meaning.

Anonymous user 27.04.2013 15:34

Forget the fracking for a moment
Think of the thousands of oil well tailings sites across thecountry
