More Evidence of Fracking’s “Clean Energy”

Click here to see the black goo and read about the 800 gallons of “dangerous materials” illegally dumped yesterday by a truck driver for Talisman Energy on state game land in Pennsylvania, just a few miles from the New York border.

The driver has been arrested and bail is set at $100,000. He’s 27 years old, from Temple, GA. So much for fracking creating jobs for Pennsylvanians.

Be sure to read the comments section. Lots of knee-jerk denials from the pro-frack crowd claiming that the industry was being made a scapegoat.

They must have been posted before the story was updated, explaining that the driver “admitted to Pennsylvania State Police that he dumped approximately 800 gallons of dangerous materials from a Bradford County gas well site onto state game lands early Thursday morning.”

Meanwhile, it was announced yesterday that the time for comments on the 1,537 page DEC review of fracking’s environmental impact has been extended from 90 to 120 days in New York. The comment period now closes on January 11.

    Hmm, so a guy completely blows off the existing law and somehow the fact that it’s “fracking” makes it worse?

  • Jesse,

    Yes, it does.
