PA DEP: Cabot's Drilling Activity contaminates Well & Wetlands



We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming...

In other words, Egos and Id(ioms) will have to wait for another day.

BIG OIL has continued to claim that there has never been a documented case of natural gas drilling activity contaminating a well...or something like that. I hear and read it so much, it should somehow be added to their (super secret) "Pledge of Allegiance" incantation at the beginning of every business day:

I pledge allegiance to the Lie$
and the United Cause of BIG OIL,
and to the Ideal$ for which we stand;
One Empire, fueled by Greed,
With royaltie$ and profit$ for all. 

Anyway...although I know there are more than a few alleged documented cases of wells being contaminated in areas where drilling is taking place ( Dimock, anyone? ), it was an eye-opener to read the following headline this morning:


Read the rest of the story here.

Of course, Cabot is going to deny the allegations. What else would you expect from BIG OIL's bad boy? And make no mistake about it, by the end of the day, the flock of industry parrots puppets (aka Marcellus Shale Coalition) will have to weigh-in on this latest headline. I wonder...how many synonyms are there for alleged?

Let's just sit back and watch this one play out. It should be fun.

HEY...DEP! Wanna get OUR attention?

Shut Cabot down...TODAY!

BTW - for those of you that have never been to Wyalusing (PA-USA) - it is a neat little ( and very old ) town on the Susquehanna River between Tunkhannock and Towanda. I've been there many times over the past 40+ years. You might enjoy this recent, and very telling, editorial in a local newspaper.
