Federal Report Appears to Undercut EPA Assurances on Water Safety In Pennsylvania

Abrahm Lustgarten, ProPublica

Since 2009 the people of Dimock, Pennsylvania, have insisted that, as natural gas companies drilled into their hillsides, shaking and fracturing their ground, their water had become undrinkable. It turned a milky brown, with percolating bubbles of explosive methane gas. People said it made them sick.

Governor John Hickenlooper, D-CO, would! He drinks fracking fluid in public press events and mine affluent from rivers in Colorado from mining spill disasters to try and show that all these things are really okay for our and our kids' health. This guy is even on Clinton's short list as VP (if she continues to cheat her way in at Philly). The cartoon characters that continue to call themselves leaders just get wackier! Are Americans really this susceptible to cartoon characters? Of course most of us are not. Let's Feel the Bern and throw the bums out. Oh, back to Hickenlooper. One can only guess what kind of water he uses to brew his beer in Denver. Proprietary secret it is. Besides there's not much "pure Rocky Mountain spring water" remaing.
