Disaster in West Virginia Continues

Postby Mountain Lily » 05 Jun 2014, 22:46

Last year, a physician in Pennsylvania won the right to tell his patients what fracking chemicals they've been exposed to and were causing their ailments. The fracking company had wanted him to sign a statement that he would not divulge the chemical mix, not because it was poisonous, but because it was a secret, proprietary formula, and the fracking company had to protect itself from other fracking companies. 

Think on that.

The doctor sued, and lost his case, winning only on appeal and as part of a larger suit concerning storage of fracking waste in urban neighborhoods(!).

This story isn't about fracking per se, but is definitely related. Please read, share, and make noise about it. We can't continue this way.

It could be your town next.

Thanks for this update - particularly as the UK government is proposing to change the law to promote fracking.

most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)
