The Economist WHEN Cristina Fernández, Argentina’s president, agreed in July to allow Chevron to help exploit the country’s shale gas more efficiently she expected gratitude from her countrymen. What she got instead was protests. Mapuche Indians and environmentalists deplored the deal. Some nationalists, far from feeling their interests were best served by inviting in the double evil of an American oil company, went so far as to burn the Stars and Stripes. […]

(ver articulo original) My friend Andrew Revkin, whom I greatly respect, has lately been pointing out certain problems with critiques of gas fracking, and pointing out how it could be greatly improved. They want more gas until something better can come along. This is the “bridge” argument. Those proponents viewing fracking from the sidelines see that gas is cleaner than coal — well, what isn’t? — and thus a “bridge” between coal […]

The EPA said that for nearly all the 64 homes whose wells […]

Last year I traveled to Western Pennsylvania to talk with people living next door to fracking operations. One man showed me the home he built for his wife and three sons on a quiet country road. They loved their rural lifestyle until representatives from an energy company showed up and said they had the right to drill for natural gas beneath the property. Soon a steady stream of trucks arrived […]

As previously noted, chemicals perform many functions in a hydraulic fracturing job.  Although there are dozens to hundreds of chemicals which could be used as additives, there are a limited number which are routinely used in hydraulic fracturing.  The following is a list of the chemicals used most often.  This chart is sorted alphabetically by the Product Function to make it easier for you to compare to the fracturing records […]

A district judge in Wyoming has shot down a group of environmentalists who tried to gather information about the long-term effects of fracking, ruling that they do not have the right to know what ingredients are used in hydraulic fracturing fluids. The coalition of environmental groups expressed deep concern over the damage that could be inflicted upon the environment if unidentified chemicals are used underground. In order to more properly […]
