Et 3-årigt studie af fracking udført af University of Cincinnati har påvist at fracking ikke påvirker grundvandet.
After a multi-year study, which was considered to be groundbreaking. UC sampled 191 water samples from private water wells, taking samples before, during, and after oil and natural gas unconventional shale wells were drilled in 5 of Ohio’s top shale counties. The results found without a shadow of a doubt, and through first-ever isotopic analysis that the water quality did not change due to natural gas or fracking.
Hvad gør man så med studiet, som delvis er udført for offentlige midler?
When asked at that meeting if the university planned to publicize the results, Dr. Amy Townsend-Small, an assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati Department of Geology and the leader of the study, said there were no plans to do so.
“I am really sad to say this, but some of our funders, the groups that had given us funding in the past, were a little disappointed in our results. They feel that fracking is scary and so they were hoping this data could to a reason to ban it,” she said.
Rep. Andy Thompson, R-Marrietta, whose district includes Carroll, Harrison and Belmont counties, is calling for the university to release its findings. Thompson noted the study received state funding in the form of an $85,714 grant from the Ohio Board or Regents and federal funding from the national Science Foundation for an isotope ratio mass spectrometer.

På samme måde som de såkaldte ‘Fredsbevægelser’ under den Kolde krig var betalt af Sovjetunionen, tyder meget på at Putin har en stor finger med i spillet om skifer-gas/olie udvinding:
Fracking has transformed the United States into the largest producer of oil and natural gas in the world, nearly doubling U.S. crude production since 2008. Other nations, such as Poland, have sought to replicate this success, and if fracking were to spread to European nations such as Bulgaria, France, Germany, and Ukraine, Russia would see its largest markets for natural gas exports disappear.
As noted by the Spectator (UK), “RT is an enthusiastic reporter of almost any protest against fracking anywhere, reflecting the interest of the Russian state and Gazprom in discouraging competition and keeping energy prices high.”
Another feature of RT’s coverage of the hydraulic fracturing debate has been to sensationalize the potential environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. The network is far less critical of the fracking operations in Siberia; in fact, RT hailed fracking in the region as a “Shale Revolution,” and “an important element of our growth strategy.”
The journal Foreign Policy reports Anders Fogh Rasmussen, then-Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), stated, “I have met allies who can report that Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation operations, engage actively with so-called non-government organizations—environmental organizations working against shale gas—obviously to maintain European dependence on imported Russian gas.”
Additionally, the magazine reports, “Researchers working on the ground in Central and Eastern Europe say there is plenty of anecdotal evidence, if no smoking guns, of Russian financial support for some environmental groups that have recently mobilized opposition to shale gas development.”
Putin may be a showoff, but he’s no dummy. He realizes most of his geopolitical power comes from his almost-exclusive ability to export energy to European markets.

Obamas seneste nummer er at tage kredit for stigningen i anatal ansatte
Ben Shapiro dokumenterer her at det – som sædvanlig – er lånte fjer, Obama pryder sig med
Faktisk er det det amerikanske olieeventyr, der har skabt fremgangen i USA, ikke Obama.

DDR har allerede kørt kampagne imod hydraulisk fracking i flere år, så denne her viser de aldrig.
For nogle måneder siden hørte jeg en udsendelse på DDR P1 om fracking, det var påfaldende så dybt og kritisk journalisterne gik ind i forskning og teknologi bag udvindingsmetoden, samme ihærdighed har jeg ALDRIG NOGENSINDE hørt DDR journalister udvise med hensyn til den såkaldte globale opvarmning. Nå nej – der er forskningen jo også endegyldigt afklaret.
