3.7 Earthquake Near Snyder, Texas

What do drilling, injection wells, and
earthquakes have in common? Let me
see... Hmmmm makes one wonder.
There has been a recent spate of earthquakes
in this area lately, a look at the map

Joe Barton Claims That 'Texas Air Quality is Excellent'

Not only is Texas the biggest polluter in the country but it isn’t complying with federal air quality standards. Texas leads the nation in carbon dioxide emissions, and in 2008, Houston was ranked the fourth worst city for ozone — a far cry from “excellent” air quality.

Drillers Soaking It All Up

MOUNDSVILLE-When Moundsville's reservoir dropped more than 10 feet in the course of a few days last month, officials began searching for what they believed would be a major water line leak.

New Process Cleanly Extracts Oil From Tar Sands And Fouled Beaches

ScienceDaily (Mar. 20, 2011) — An environmentally friendlier method of separating oil from tar sands has been developed by a team of researchers at Penn State. This method, which utilizes ionic liquids to separate the heavy viscous oil from sand, is also capable of cleaning oil spills from beaches and separating oil from drill cuttings, the solid particles that must be removed from drilling fluids in oil and gas wells.
Safer methods for gas extractions exsist now, but are seldom utilized.
It would of course, cost industry some of their exorbitant profits to protect
our health.
