Concept vs. Reality: Radon Migration Increasing


When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.

So, we're drilling thousands of holes into the earth and fracturing a layer of bedrock ( Marcellus Shale ) that is known to be radioactive...and there are those @ the PA DEP ( from one of my friends in Bradford County ) who claim that this activity has not or will not increase the level of radon seeping out of the earth.
 
Where do they find these stupid, spineless bureaucrats?
 
For the latest...read this article.
 
Want to learn more about Radon? Check this out.
 
The whole process of hydrofracturing is designed to fracture rock containing trapped natural gas (methane, et al) and bring the gas back to the surface. And there is no magic "radon filter" built into the hydrofracturing process or equipment used to stop anything down there from coming along for the ride.
 
Even the most rabid industry-funded pro-frackers couldn't argue that point, although I'm sure they'd try anyway...because that's what they're paid to do.
 
Thanks for the continued communications, folks. I do read everything being sent, but we have a lot going on these days, so my responses will be far & few between.

I hope to be back in the fray soon.
 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
