I have seen this on many lieberals web sites championing banning "fracking" to release oil and gas from rock. Funny ....now we know the whole story; (http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Columns/2011/12/14/Tainted-EPA-Report-on-Fracking-Blasted-by-Gas-Co.aspx#page1)


Environmental Protection Agency Strikes Gas! That should have been the headline last week that instead ran as “EPA says fracking may be polluting groundwater.” Here’s the story: the EPA says tests it conducted in Pavillion, Wyoming “indicate that ground water in the aquifer contains compounds likely associated with gas production practices, including hydraulic fracturing.” However, it turns out that the EPA drilled two monitoring wells to some 900 feet – much deeper than water wells which are usually at about 300 feet – and indeed found hydrocarbons. In short, they drilled into the natural gas reservoir that has long attracted industry producers. It may the single most productive moment in EPA history.

You can't stop the left from lying, they will keep it up and keep it up no matter what the truth is.

Now that's pretty funny right there, Teetop. :D
Just shows how very little the idiots know about the industries they regulate.
Here's another good article on this:
