      The pipes they use don't fit water-tight into the drill hole so chemicals under immense pressure must be forced upwards into higher levels. And of course there will be cracks and seepage points in what the industry calls impermeable layers of rock. So far it has caused contamination every time.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
