Pennsylvania communities sue frackers for toxic pollution
Propublica's Abrahm Lustgarten reports that Pennsylvania residents are suing Cabot Oil and Gas -- the company responsible for multiple spills associated with their Marcellus Shale drilling near Dimock, PA. They seek to stop future drilling and to establish a trust fund to cover medical expenses for those harmed by Cabot's operations.
Something stinks… the drilling industry’s attitude towards reasonable oversight.
What do the recent Pennsylvania and Colorado examples of industry's attempt to suborn reasonable state drilling oversight demonstrate?
The need for federal regulation of drilling/fracking.
What’s the big fracking deal? Toxic spills.
Updated. Update II.
While the natural gas industry maintains that stronger regulations aren't needed, its track record continues to prove otherwise.
On Tuesday, the Wayne Independent reported that three "substantial" toxic spills by a fracker have occurred in less than one week in Dimock Township, Pennsylvania.
Another violation of trust. Two PA fracking spills of who knows what.
More proof that the FRAC Act is, contrary to industry claims, quite necessary.
