Re: “This American Life Gets "Fracked"

Fracking is not a red herring. What the show forgot to mention is that the horizontally drilled shale must be fractured with explosive charges, aligned on the drilling tube. The fluid contains lubricants and tons of crap plus sand or some other material to hold the fractures open. This isn't an issue of just casing integrity. This is a dirty and damaging process. The failure to understand risk uncertainties to health and the environment are too great at this juncture to warrant continued drilling that could cost us, not the natural gas industry, untold dollars in health and welfare damages.
