Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Earthquake numbers are soaring in Oklahoma. The land is dotted with injection well sites to dispose of the polluted water from fracking.

Ever had a mean or impatient nurse give you a shot for pain and hurried the plunge?

 It hurts like hell when something foreign is forced into your body. I know this from experience after a car accident that left my '63 Volvo B-18 gear shift and pieces of the walnut shift knob shift deep into my gut that nearly ended me many years ago.

Get a kind, gentle nurse who takes her time and slowly injects the pain killing fluid.

Or if it isn't an accident at all but purposeful actions taking place; stop doing the thing that causes the pain in the first place. That is a choice.

We have that choice

In Texas oil and gas wells are spewing a toxic soup directly into the atmosphere

That toxic soup includes a wide variety of volatile organic compounds (VOC): benzene. toluene and many other compounds known to cause cancer and other serious illnesses.

From The Weather Channel | Inside Climate News | The Center for Public Integrity are some excellent video and information:
Fracking the Eagle Ford Shale;  Big Oil and Bad Air on the Texas Prairie
This Weather Channel link is loaded with valuable information.  It is excellent work and worth digging into - imo:  http://stories.weather.com/...

This is what is happening today chasing sources of energy buried in the ground, including thousands of feet down into the ocean's floor

 I thought this is really important work being done by The Weather Channel | Inside Climate News | The Center for Public Integrity and hope to help share this work and spread the word

Thank you for stopping by and spread the links if ya feel like it too :)
