Texas towns to be out of water due to fracking

Press TV

More than 30 towns in West Texas will soon be out of water as a direct result of diverting their underground water supplies for use in hydraulic fracking.

Largely unregulated fracking, it should be said. Largely unregulated fracking that is definitely putting arsenic into the ground it happens to be drying out. Before you start acting horrified, though, consider: this is exactly what Texas’ mental-midget teabillies voted for.  

Despite the vast consensus of climate scientists, the highly publicized destructive effects of fracking on water supplies, fracking’s seismic impact, and the evidence of their own senses, the mentally deficient residents of Texas keep electing politicians who believe climate change is a myth, and who think the best course of action to address Texas’ crippling drought is several days of organized prayer.

Maybe Rick Perry and the idiots that voted him back into office will be able to pray in some new drinking water while the non-stupid people of Texas pray for a governor with a triple-digit IQ. While you’re waiting to see how that works out for the citizens of West Texas, take some time to watch the following interview with Antonia Juhasz, an oil and energy analyst, author, and journalist.

Fair warning, though: if you live in Texas, you probably won’t enjoy it. Gas2.org

  1. The information in this article, is needed, NOW.
    Before, well, on the other hand, it may be too late. I hope not.!.I am not much of a prayer…Oh I pray….with me, though, seems to be a one way street…….When those master prayer–s say its to be a two way street!
    All life needs water…………
    Lets get a blogger in every zip code in america…they need not have a site, just visit one each day and comment………….
    come on America…..pass the word!!!!!!!!

  2. Many of us Texans have warned against fracking, even when it doesn’t dry up all the ground water since it pollutes whatever water is left. As for your climate change paranoia, you can take that with Al Gore and stay the hell out of Texas.

    1. Yep WarriorClass111, they mine a lot of that damned frack sand where I am from here in Wi. and even just mining that damned sand polutes the water ways, ruins the local air quality, and it realy does destroy the landscape and it also ruins the hunting and local fishing not to mention what they do to the local roads , etc.. There is not one good thing that I can think of that is good or positive about fracking or frack sand mines.

  3. Could the poster at least say which west Texas towns are being affected?

    The Ogalalla Aquifer is drying up anyway.

  4. yes the Ogalalla Aquifer is know to be drying up anyway…..
    there is this.
    the entire world of people………what is it? 7Bil…….needs to use a different sort of energy…which it could……..would the big money switch over……
    I wonder if big money will do that before………they shoot themselves in the foot……………well, hell they have already done that……..will they shoot themselves in the head…….before regular citizens are nearly dead from big money’s onerous ways……..??
    hope so
