Neutral? hardly. Ever felt a man made earthquake? I have. Even our neo-con gov. Is concerned and that’s sayin a lot. Don’t know about the cancer problem but I do know about the earthquakes in Northeastern Ohio. Also fire spewing from water taps and faucets Near the well areas. Those reports are genuine. Cracking mother earth ain’t a good idea. Especially since we live on it.
What I understand from the article is that we extract oil FROM the ground, use it, and when it is good and dirty we reinject it back INTO earth (along with a bunch of other deadly stuff), at enormous pressures for purposes of creating fractures, giving access to oil and gas at depths down to 10,000’, which we then use until it is good and dirty?
Add: What if a spark found a crack which led to a very large cache of natural gas? Talking about pressure, that would surely create a productive crack!
