I feel sorry for the people who live there. No one will tell them the REAL TRUTH. USA USA USA hahahahahahahahaaaa
Please get off the democrat - republican meme and realize that these kinds of toxic products don't care what political party someone belongs to. Poison is poison, and West Virginia used to be one of the most beautiful states in the US. BUt thanks to criminal extortion and confiscation of private lands by the Rockerfeller monolpoly (and others) the state has become a festering open wound and an eye sore. ALL fracking and mining operations in America should be shut down. Pretty soon America will be the same toxic polluted pig-pen that China has become. These fracking companies need to be BANNED.
FACT: MCHM in volume that was spilled in volume of water it was spilled in, high likelihood did no one any harm. Review MSDS sheet, understand chemistry behind MCHM and fact is fact.
You can react emotional about chemical spil but fact is fact.
Many tree hugger wanker in America who are idiot living on emotion and fabricated neurosis.
Very pitiful to watch Americans with this mental burden
When the fracking companies start culling humans in earnest. I'm voting that they go for you first.
I'm actually from West Virginia. Clearly, many of you commenting here don't have the first clue what is happening in the hills I call home. For starters, our state legislature has a HUGE Democratic majority and has for many years. I know most of the publicly available information regarding MCHM declares that it's benign, (might have something to do with the fact that this research was done by the company that makes the chemical) but the results of the spill say otherwise. FACT: I've seen many pics of people injured with chemical burns on their skin and in their throats from the so-called "safe" chemical.
Could you please link to us when you use ThinkProgress reporting?
Keep on voting GOP-Tea Party, West Virginia. You reap what you sow.
Do you really think it matters who you vote for? If so then I got a bridge to sell you.
I guess the PR companies for these giants dont need to spend so much time and energy when they have the public to do their job! Troll away!
With to many people on the planet you need to start somewhere !
Chances are high that the fracking companies are also going to file for chapter 11. Tax payers better start saving
If crude MCHM is truly what leaked, it’s possible that we don’t even know which of this ‘cocktail’ is most harmful.
Ne ed to know secrets.
The same people who declare anything is safe are on the payroll of the corporations of that particular industry.
a leaky container eh ? definately nothing to do with fracking either ? who can those guinea pigs trust ? no picture of said container. a bit like no pictures of bin laden between being caught and supposedly dumped at sea.
Keep in mind of all 1st world countries this one probably has the worst healthcare.
I'd bet more than half of the people there after the water was deemed "safe", were there because they heard the water was safe and thought they missed out on a free checkup. Goodluck getting a bankrupt company to pay your hospital bills.
Scared people react. Some with self-serving movtives, but most are reacting from fear.
