PunGent: HindiDiscoMonster: Anybody who supports fracking should have to drink (by law) the "safe" water.
I wonder how long it would take for things to change then...

Well, we're going to have fracking, that's a given.

I'd suggest something like a 1% tax/fee per frack hole, use it to build up a trust fund for the communities that will inevitably get screwed out of their water supply.

Problem with THAT, of course, is that politicians won't be able to keep their paws off the money.


And, of course, the fact that water is a finite resource that is already in short supply in some places. But let's go ahead and frack, I guess we can all drink 2 liter sodas when the water is gone.

Vaneshi: moefuggenbrew: NateAsbestos: But for serious, this happens a lot more than even makes the news. It's disturbing.

About 20 times a day.

OMG! OEEE NOES!  Ohh wait it's not quantifying what counts as a spill.  Some lab assistant drops a bottle of acid, in the lab?  That's reported as a chemical spill.


Yes, I am sure that the 194 MILLION POUNDS are just from lab assistants dropping 5ml bottles.

One pizza and two liters? I would ask for at least a pizza and a TF subscription.

FTA: "The fire -- who posed enormous risks to rescue workers and to the surrounding community -- burned intensely for five days before it was finally extinguished."

Fires are now people?

Langdon_777: I wonder if accepting the pizza resolves the company of any future litigation a local might bring against it....


Now, now.  You aren't suggesting that Chevron would engage in such shady tactics as to make use of the gift certificate contingent on waiving any liability to claims.
