Ok, Ive had enough, Its time for a rain dance.
How did they miss Don Majka's rain dance in Bridgeport?
So what? It is his problem for not thinking ahead, this is Texas we get droughts. That nasty dust bowl business is all a lie.Of course he is just a part-timer hobby "rancher." That won't stop him from applying for a subsidy.
Okay Stu, go for it!! You should know how to get it done after all those years of intense study!!! (ur sister!!) :-)
8:16... you are a mean, nasty person
What water we do have someday may be so polluted with these injection wells it wont matter either way.I picture a vast waste land and a "Class Action Law Suit" Were the Attorneys like in the Tobacco Settlements get all the money and you and me get the shaft & the Cancer that comes with drinking the Water :(
9:01AM, the information was posted here before. Cocanougher Cattle Co received $158,525 from 1995-2004. I can understand how the truth can hurt.And collectionsite, I think you've strayed from the WCMessenger forums. Perhaps if there was less demand from the products pulled from the ground, there wouldn't be so much drilling and injection wells. But the WCM forumites can't wrap their tiny little brains around that fact.
Ok, tried the rain dance thang, must do more research. Thought I had it but, well, I was to close to my sprinkler.
Stu, you had better control your lawn watering. That kooky lady in Fort Worth might decide to branch out and take us all. Afterall, she needs another trophy on her wall.
Annon @ 10:02I tend to agree with you and I hope that I am DEAD WRONG and that nothing ever happens.But for some reason I just cant get over the fact that we are dumping (enjecting) toxics in the ground and that is good? When it comes to our ground water ... do we get a "Do Over"?
collectionsite, I agree that injecting toxic waste back into the ground is not good. No matter which way you frame it, it will come back and bite us in the ass. I have never debated that.My point being (and what the WCM forumites miss time and again) that we have made our own bed by the obscene demand for oil and gas. They want to blame oil companies, well guess who works for them and buys (more and more) their product? We've demanded cheap energy, and now we've gotten it, warts and all.Now comes the blockade for coal, wind, and nuclear power plants. Well, you can't have your cake and eat it, too.I also am not arguing against something being done, but you can't just deal with the glaring issue of the injection wells. You have to deal with the source. Otherwise those trucks will roll off into Montague County, or somewhere farther west and start the process anew. All these "concerned citizen" groups will shout that they've won, but all they've done is delay the inevitable. Take a look at the aquifer maps. You dump it north, south, east, or west of here and we'll still get contaminated water. Or maybe they'll head out to the Ogallala aquifer because West Texas doesn't deserve clean water like we do. Nor do we need the food that they produce, irrigated by that water.
"Ping" ... "Ping" ... I think you have hit the nail on the head.I am not educated enough to know exactly what do we do with all those Toxins? We agree dumping them in the ground is not the answer .. dumping them anywhere is NOT the answer ...But first I think the people need to S-T-O-P them before it is too late. Do you know what can be done with the chemicals??? Please advise :)
It takes a million gallons of water to "frack" one gas or oil well. That is a fact they can't deny. Wise County is about to realize that Oil and gas is not that precious. Water is what is needed to survive first and we had better quit giving it away.
Maybe they can recycle the waste for some other good, we can send a man to the moon, why not use everything we have already used?
http://www.planetark.org/dailynewsstory.cfm?newsid=10459Check out this link. Maybe if Bush and Congress would quit cutting the budget for environmental research and alternative fuel programs we would have a choice. As recent as June of 2006 Funding was cut from the Farmers that were growing the Corn and Wheat Grass that was being developed as a renewable energy source. At the same time the Budget for oil and Gas was increased by the same amount. Really, learn the facts before you can jump on somebody like CollectionSite who brings up some legitimate questions.
We haven't exactly made our own beds. It's more like we were assigned cots on a run away train. But we are going to turn that train around in November.
and pay $5 a gallon for gas
If it weren't so sad it would be funny that the same people that are so upset about the government's energy policy, will not allow for drilling in remote areas, putting up wind turbines in their back yard, building of nuclear plants, or building of more refineries.
Jimmy Carter for energy czar

Up your sinclair

The water is very serious and going to get worse. The cattle and all ag will suffer, glad they have received some attention..
