There has to be a better way than fracking to save economy

Hey loaf actually this is an accurate list of chemicals in fracking fluid and radioactive elements in the back water. I took the time to read up on each one to see how they effect on the human body. And have generously sent you to a link where another has done the same investigation so there you have it.You are free to proceed with caution or leap into a fracking backwater pit laced with this lethal concoction.

There has to be a better way than fracking to save economy

Lets Talk About Those Extracted Elements & Compounds!
Salt
* On average, 1 pound of salt per gallon is collected from reclaimed fracking fluid

Hard Minerals
* Minerals so high in concentrate that well water is no longer drinkable

Radium 226
* On average, the levels of Radium 226 are 267x greater than the lethal exposure limit to humans

Radon
* Naturally decomposing radioactive element lethal to humans in high doses

Uranium
* Everyone knows uranium is a no no when it comes to your health!

Thorium * exposure causes bone cancer

Methane
* The migration of methane to wells due to pressure changes ruin well water and contamiates it beyond reclamation
50 pph (parts per hundred) over a 2 hour period

Extracted fluids after fracking process
Highly toxic,
At least 65 - 85 chemicals are toxic to humans
The majority of the chemicals are not biodegradable
Upwards of 80% of the fluid remains in the ground
Must be stored in a containment pond, which leak and are unprotected from the environment except for a supposed impermeable liner
The migration of methane to wells due to pressure changes ruin well water and contamiates it beyond reclamation

Lets Talk About Those Chemicals!
Xylene
So poisonous that one drop pollutes thousands of gallons of water
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
10 ppm (parts per million) or
1 drop per 4 gallons

Toluene
So poisonous that one drop pollutes thousands of gallons of water
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
1 ppm (parts per million) or
1 drop per 40 gallons

Ethylbenzene
So poisonous that one drop pollutes thousands of gallons of water
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
.07 ppm (parts per million) {not even one drop} or
1 drop per 572 gallons

Arsenic
So poisonous that one drop pollutes thousands of gallons of water
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
.01 ppm (parts per million), not even one part per million! or
1 drop per 4,000 gallons

Benzene
* So poisonous that one drop pollutes thousands of gallons of water
* EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
.005 ppm (parts per million) or 5 ppb (parts per billion) or
1 drop per 8,000 gallons
Naphthalene
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
Don't know, this must be a mix of some stuff?

Trimethylnapthalene
EPA Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL's) acceptable in drinking water..
Don't know, this must be a mix of some stuff?

Methanol
Oral: 143 mg/kg is the toxicological level for humans
Inhalation; 300 ppm is the toxicological level for humans

Hydrochloric Acid
5 ppm is the exposure level

Ethanol
1,000 ppm is the exposure level

Glycol
impairs and damages the CNS
Up to 154 hazardous contaminants used in hydro fracking in the state of NM
Up to 85 hazardous chemicals used in hydro fracking in the state of PA

Records show that formaldehyde, a human carcinogen, benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, acids, arsenic, and pesticides that are toxic to wildlife, aquatic life, domestic animals and humans are added to the fracking fluid

1 ppm = roughly 1 drop of the substance per 40 gallons of water

EPA Drinking Water Contaminants - Lists of drinking water contaminants.

UticaShale check out the radioactive fracking map. The review revealed that levels of radium, uranium or other radioactive elements in 116 gas wells were 100 times higher than federal drinking water standards, and in 15 wells, 1000 times higher (see Map). The findings confirm and extend those made from radioactivity data from the limited testing done in New York.

Dear Sapsucker3 ....Is the group on FB? I can`t seem to configure outlook on my PC, so I can`t send Judy a message via gostbear1@aol.com
Is there a twitter I can follow?

Peacelover, I`d be happy to send an update. Here is a link about EB`s latest battle.

To me
Dear ..........

Thank you for your email enquiry. I appreciate that you have taken the time to contact me. I am always amazed and humbled at the number of enquiries I receive from around the globe from people just like you who need my help or want some simple advice on how they may move forward in helping themselves. I take this responsibility very seriously, so it's important to ensure I take the time to review the many enquiries I receive each week.

Thank you again and I will consider and reply to your enquiry as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely

Erin Brockovich

I contacted Erin Brockovich to see if she could help us out of the predicament we have been placed in. Julia Roberts played the part of Erin, in a movie some years ago. Erin has helped many people whose lives and environment have been shattered by the negligible practices of toxic industries. She now has her own legal firm.
Hello Erin,
I live in PA and the newest heinous bills to have been signed into law are HB1950 and SB1100. Because of this, Marcellus Hydraulic Shale fracturing (fracking) can be done across the state in all zones (including residential) fracking wells can be set up within 300 ft. of homes, schools, playgrounds ect. The law has also tied the hands of Pennsylvania`s Physicians, who are not allowed to let anyone know that they are treating patients who have been made ill from the lethal radioactive and chemical waste. The list of fracking chemicals will be made available to our health care professionals, so that they can better treat their patients, however they will not be able to disclose the contents to the public and cannot therefore warn people of a health epidemic resulting from fracking. The fracking industry is laying our land and it`s people health to waste. They are using and contaminating millions upon millions of gallons of our water supply to operate a fundamentally dangerous business that has already made people direly ill. Due to the lax environmental protections in PA regarding contaminated water, many people have continued to drink their water because they were told it was safe to do so. There have been reported deaths directly linked to the chemical and radiation exposure. I would like to see everyone involved in this practice to be held criminally accountable. They are knowingly and intentionally poisoning us, so that they can make a fortune, while leaving our state, a veritable radioactive melt down zone. This is a heinous thing to do to the people of a commonwealth. I want to see every one who voted for this held accountable including our Governor who allowed the gas industry to write the bills that were made into law. I want those who are selling and leasing our sources of water to be brought to justice, along with the entire gas industry. From what I understand there have been some settlements paid to people who have been effected, but as part of the settlement agreement, these people are not allowed to disclose any connection of their illnesses with the fracking industries toxic waste. This whole industry has to be completely shut down, I don`t begin to know how to accomplish this, but it seems to me that we have a criminal case here as well as an environmental one. Mal fracking practices? Recklessly endangering a populace.

Thanks so much for your time,
