Obama Backs Fracking to Create 600,000 Jobs, Vows Safe Drilling
[link to www.businessweek.com]

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama, in a State of the Union address delivered 11 months before election day, pushed drilling for natural gas in shale formations as a potential boost to the economy.

Hydraulic fracturing, which injects a mix of water, sand and chemicals underground to free gas trapped in rock, could create 600,000 jobs by the end of the decade, according to a White House document released before Obama’s speech. The process, called fracking, is among a list of energy policies Obama said would fuel economic growth.

“We have a supply of natural gas that can last America nearly one hundred years, and my Administration will take every possible action to safely develop this energy,” Obama will say, according to a copy of the speech released by the White House.

Obama also reiterated support for conservation and cleaner sources of power, which have been themes of his administration. He announced incentives to make industries more energy efficient, and reiterated his call for Congress to a larger percentage of the nation’s power comes from low-pollution sources by 2035.

Dangers Posed by Fracking

*Fracking chemicals are toxic and can contaminate water from spills or accidents.

*Fracking produces hazardous wastewater, which can contain radioactive substances as well as toxic chemicals, making disposal difficult and dangerous.

*Fracking requires millions of gallons of water, which can deplete local water supplies.

*Fracking can cause natural gas to migrate into drinking water sources, which can cause houses and wells to explode.

*There have been more than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination near drilling sites around the country.

Officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency were in Dimock (PA) Thursday and Friday to visit residents whose water supplies were found by state regulators to have been tainted with methane from Cabot Oil and Gas Corp.'s Marcellus Shale drilling operations

Those tests, taken in August and September by a Cabot contractor, showed elevated levels of metals and bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, a plasticizer commonly called DEHP. They also detected other chemicals including glycols, which are used in antifreeze, surfactants, and 2-methoxyethanol, a solvent, in the drinking water wells.

That this goes through is because republicans support it. If it was up to Obama and the democrats, drilling would be far less and other plans to create jobs would be voted in.

A pipeline is bad because it "might", if something goes wrong, contaminate the groundwater and harm wildlife preserves and so, no pipeline.

I saw that movie about fracking across the US and they showed zones with no plant-life, how you could set your tap-water on fire from the gas leaking up, stuff like that. I mean, they actually showed the harmful effects which were occurring, not what "might" happen, with fracking. And now there's talk, nothing "official" of course, that earthquakes may be happening because of this. Incredible! You can't make this stuff up. But it's ignored. If you can't see it, it doesn't exist. Out of sight, out of mind.

With leadership such as this, assume the position. Stick your head in the sand and kiss your ass good-bye. I've reached the point where I don't believe anything a politician says. Up is down, black is white, dawning day is darkest night. We live in Bizaaro-world, folks.

Re: Obama Backs Fracking to Create 600,000 Jobs, Vows Safe Drilling
I live in Northern PA where fracking has run rampid and have nothing but BAD things to say about the whole process.

The water smells funny and is horribly discolored some days. Showering causes dry skin and leaves you with a smell that can only be compared to how you smell when exiting a highly chlorinated pool.

This does not take into account the "other" damage done to the area. The surrounding roads and towns were not meant for the kind of traffic we see now. There are potholes on many roads that will plain ruin your car and if you are lucky enough to get stuck behind a frak truck you can always count on being extremely late. They travel in caravans of 5-8 vehicles and will crawl along single lane roads 30mph below the speed limit making it near impossible to pass as they will ride on each others ass.

Very disappointed (but not surprised) to hear this will continue with no remorse from the government.
