Frackers use diesel fuel illegally, then doctor the records
I am so glad Maine is blessed with no hydrocarbons. We may come out of this with good water, if the powers that be don't fuck us up with landfills. Scientific American:
A new report charges that several oil and gas companies have been illegally using diesel fuel in their hydraulic fracturing operations, and then doctoring records to hide violations of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
Fracking is a "self-policy" industry, a contradiction in terms if ever I heard one. But-- But-- What about reputational risk?
