  •  Water Is a Finite Resource (10+ / 0-)

    The water that is being mined from deep aquifers has been collecting there for many thousands, if not millions, of years. If it is used for fracking, it is essentially destroyed for other uses. There is no reasonable way to purify it. Pumping it back into the ground will take at least the same number of eons to clean it up and has the potential to contaminate other ground water as well. If it is illegal to flush a ship's toilet into the sea, how is it legal to do this for fracking? (Rhetorical question. I know it's all about the money.)

    "A famous person once said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.' But as I once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." – Max Headroom
