der---de---der....I found it on the internet so it HAS to be true----der. Come on people!!! Quit spreading false nonsense on this blog. They have been using fracking for almost a century now and the US still drinks the water and hasn't been destroyed by earthquakes or global warming. Quit listening to other peoples opinions and think for yourselves for once. Become educated and quit being a backwoods, web surfing bumpkin. If you are against fracking and well drilling in general , then I challenge you to go thru one week without using a product related to the petroleum industry.
