The EPA has been occupied by hostile forces who seek to poison America for fun and profit. These are crimes and outrages.

Horses are being born without the ability to swallow — and fracking could be to blame

​Family awarded $3 million in first US fracking trial

 Lisa said her breathing was impaired, and she was inflicted with nausea and headaches. Bob reported suddenly having around three nosebleeds per week, an anomaly compared to the rest of his life, he said. And Emma also reported nosebleeds, as well as nausea and rashes. She was diagnosed with asthma soon after the drilling began.

“We can’t drink our well water,” Bob Parr told Dallas’ FOX 4 in 2011. “We can’t breathe the air without getting sick.”

Promised-Land-Poster

This anti-fracking movie was passable, but conventional and obvious.  It commits the sin of repeatedly talking about the issue.  Battles of words are a bit light on the hard evidence.  With exposition-heavy issue films, many viewers are going to be turned off, and Promised Land’s ratings hover near the 50% mark – perhaps a glass half full?

The good thing about the movie is that it is the first to tackle the hydro-fracking pollution in a widely-released drama.  The crux of the problem is clear, but the contrived plot created around it is simplistic at times.

Obama Climate Plan Touts Gas Fracking As “Transition Fuel,” Doubling Down on Methane Risk

 

There is a clear disconnect between the president’s stated commitment to a healthy future for children, and the vast expansion of natural gas drilling and fracking, which are scientifically proven to be polluting the air and drinking water of Americans.”

“That premise is false. When measured in its entire life cycle – as Cornell University researchers found – fracked gas is actually dirtier than coal  and therefore is a bridge to nowhere other than extreme climate disruption.”

 

First Study of Its Kind Detects 44 Hazardous Air Pollutants at Gas Drilling Sites

With gas wells in some states being drilled near schools and homes, scientists see a need for better chemical disclosure laws and follow-up research.

During the Fukushima onslaught of radiation, they abandoned America by scaling down their measurements and radiation detection programs.  Can’t have bad publicity over the nuclear industry poisoning the population, can we?

Now OBAMA’S fascist EPA is ignoring its own study of fracking and punting it back to the State of Wyoming to work out with the company.  The effects across the rest of the nation are of no concern.  Those poisoned in all the other locales will need to start from scratch and try and get the Reichs Ministers interested once again.  Good luck.

EPA Halts Study Linking Fracking with Water Pollution

“EPA officials said they will not finalize a 2011 draft study that found contaminants in the groundwater of Pavillion, Wyoming, were consistent with chemicals used in fracking.

They also said they will not ask outside experts to review the EPA’s research. Instead, the agency will turn the matter over to the state of Wyoming, which intends to work with Encana, the company that conducted the fracking, to resolve the problem.”

A Pennsylvania judge rules corporations have no right to privacy (and fuck them too).  Unseals records of secret $750,000 payouts to families harmed by their water supplies being poisoned with fracking chemicals.  Bodes well for going after these corporate thugs.  Expect the corrupt feds to try and overturn it somehow.

Corporate personhood on the chopping block:

“Nothing in that jurisprudence indicates that that right [of privacy] is available to business entities.”

“There are no men or woman defendants in the instant case; they are various business entities,” it wrote, saying business entities are created by the state and subject to laws, unlike people with natural rights. “In the absence of state law, business entities are nothing.” If businesses had natural rights like people, “the chattel would become the co-equal to its owners, the servant on par with its masters, the agent the peer of its principles, and the legal fabrication superior to the law that created and sustains it.”

The judge said the U.S. Constitution’s 14 th Amendment “use of the word “person’ that makes its protections applicable to business entities” does not apply to Pennsylvania’s constitution. “The exact opposite is derived from plan language of Article X of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”

“Not only did our framers know how to employ the names of business entities when and where they wanted them” they used those words to subjugate business entities to the constitution,” the Court held. “The framers permitted the Commonwealth to revoke, amend, and repeal “[a]ll charters of private corporations’ and any “powers, duties or liabilities’ of corpoeations”
