    underground with millions of gallons of fresh water being mixed with sand and toxic chemicals injected all over our country, not to mention the waste ponds and tanks of that toxic mess.  It all has to go somewhere.  

    With more catastrophic flooding coming because of  anthropogenic global warming, like we saw this year in Colorado, Vermont, West Virginia, Mexico yesterday and Chicago in April, the question we need to be asking is how do we protect our fresh water sources from contamination.  Oh, and there is that other question about our fresh water sources ... what happens when they start running dry because we are depeleting them more rapidly than they are being refilled all over the nation?

    Fracking has been a bolster to our fragile economy;  but, in twenty years our kids wills be cursing us for having allowed this very dirty energy practice when we have cleaner options available.
