Spin...we all do it. But some of it, well it goes too far. I'm a solar developer. I want to stay out of it but we have to have more transparency and honesty in our energy debates.
A recent study from the University of Texas found high levels of contaminants in private water wells near a number of Texas gas operations.
So we have high levels of heavy metals in water linked definitively close to gas drilling operations. The exact cause is unknown but where there is gas drilling there are heavy metals.
Surely this is not a positive story for the gas industry? Right?
"Study: Well contamination near gas drilling sites not from fracking"
The fracking debate is a complex one. There are clearly strong economic and policy advantages for the US. There are also clearly environmental concerns and all the facts are not in. But the spin doesn't help anyone...or does it?
