I've worked in the oil industry for 44 years, specifically both in drilling and production operations. The whole topic is designed to scare a public that knows virtually nothing of the process of fraccing (from the word "fracture", there is no K in it) It is common to add diesel to the frac fluid. It lowers the friction of the fluid inside the rock and makes it easier to pump (thus requiring less engine horsepower at the surface, hence less air pollution). Remember, you are pumping this into rock that already contains oil and gas. It's where diesel came from to start with. Also, all frac fluids are recovered from the well. Therefore the diesel is separated out at the surface then reused. The huge problem is lack of education and understanding of the facts. The public should not be led like sheep like they have been. The public should discover the truth.
You really should email this to Congressman Henry Waxman-a democrat from CA.Hes the one leading the charge about this.Hes a blow hard politician with little knowledge about anything but he runs his ignorant mouth.

Every time a right wing judge overturns the bill you guys are out there gloating. Then when you lose the appeal it's crickets. Of course you are complete partisan fools because if it ever was actually overturned insurance will sky rocket. Dennis Kucinich made a good point the other day. He said if the health care is actually overturned by the Supreme Court it will clear the way for single payer which is what most people wanted before the Democrats compromised everything a away to the Republican insurance lobby.

Don't worry the rethugs will make sure no one is punished for these crimes against American citizens! Rethugs would fellate a shaggy bear if there was a buck in it for them and their corporate masters!

Total BS. They are pumping a lot more then just diesel into the ground. Even if they weren't diesel contains enough toxins by itself. I did enjoy how you tried top spin the oil companies are doing this so there will be less pollution being admitted from their pumping engines. The fact is when you fracture the substrate it permits the oil and gas below to percolate up and mix with what ever is above it. Many times that is somebodyís drinking water. This is the perfect example of the kind oil bias regulating and deregulating that went on under Bush. Now they want to frack in the aquifers of the Northeast that supplies water to over 50 million people. These guys are only interested in making money and they donít care how many people are harmed from their activities, and of course they are supported by the Republicans. All I have to say to you and your Republican buddies is you can all go frack yourselves. Maybe somebody should pump some diesel up you ass and see how you feel afterwards.
