And I am worried about our water supply. Fracking, a technique used to bring natural gas out of the ground, involves injecting water and potentially dangerous chemicals into the ground. If those chemicals should enter the aquifers our water supplies could be contaminated forever, endangering life of people, animals and plant life. I am particularly worried about the Ogallalah (sp?) Aquifer that lies beneath most of the midwest. The proposed XL pipeline also threatens that aquifer -- and the pipeline is to be used to transfer oil sands from Canada to refineries in Texas and then the oil is to be shipped to China. We would endanger our essential water supplies for oil that is not even for American consumpton!

I am worried.


Incredible stories from your childhood. You lived in a world my children' cannot even imagine and have no frame of reference to begin to speculate about.
