  •  Wow -- do you have a link (2+ / 0-)

    to any evidence that they're using ethylene glycol? I'd love to know that. You are correct -- it is horrendously deadly to people and animals. Where did you get the info that it's being used in fracking?

    •  went to get ya one and found too many to count. (4+ / 0-)

      It's a given that there's animal poisons and all kinds of other crap that an individual can't legally pour a gallon of into their backyard, but for some reason corporate 'people' can do it by the millions.

      Back in the '90s I watched our local town officials give a sawyer a hard time about whether or not he was dripping chain oil on the ground at all. One official tried to make him take a measuring cup and report back. (yes, they were hassling him on purpose in a small town way, but it put the fear into everyone else with small businesses for a moment.)

      Also back then I remember that they were trying to make artists itemize things like how much cobalt blue or phthalein green they used in their paintings, along with lead white, etc. Didn't affect me but my teacher, a professional portrait painter, was pissed about it.

      What a changed world where the Kochs etc. can do what they do and get away with it.

    •  Here is a link to MSDS of many fracturing fluids (4+ / 0-)

      an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is a requirement for most chemicals - it is available for all workers, firefighters, hazmats etc.  Many of the ingredients are "trade secret" but many are disclosed and some disclosed as CAS numbers.

      Here is the link.

      You can click an any one and it will give you a lot of data on the chemical.

      As for the CAS numbers (Chemical Abstracts Services) - her is a site that you can seach by unique CAS numbers.  

      You'll find the ethylene glycol in many.
