even if it was, 'for effect', does that mean, suddenly, that tracking is a good thing?

'Fracking'
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 12:28 AM
think of the amount of water used to extract.
Things I Learned January 22, 2014 at 12:31 AM
The evidence against fracking is so strong we have to fake the evidence against fracking 'for effect'.

from the article you sited, so we can see the major players: "Halliburton, Baker Hughes and FTS International are among the oil and gas companies increasingly using recycled water in hydraulic fracturing. Most fracking to extract shale gas is happening in water-stressed regions of the US, such as Texas and Colorado, both of which are in the midst of prolonged drought conditions. Companies are feeling the pressure to cut their freshwater use in these dry areas of the country — and they’re looking to reduce the high costs of hauling millions of barrels of water to oil and gas wells and later to underground disposal wells, Reuters reports."

UPinSmoke and TIL agree that the article proves that fracking companies are successfully working to come up with market driven solutions to the water use problem in fracking.

TTIL: you say, "The evidence against fracking is so strong WE have to fake the evidence against fracking 'for effect'." "WE"? that was one directors' decision to unfortunately guild the lilly. (it is, of course, unnecessary )
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 12:52 AM
it shows that they are trying to save money? is that a surprise?
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 12:53 AM
certain chemicals they will not disclose.

The director of the movie you invited us to come watch?
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 12:53 AM
maybe, you'd like it in your backyard TTIL, not me thanks.
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 12:56 AM
yes, come and meet others who are against Fracking as well. even if the director made a mistake, the issues are the same.

It is no surprise that "it is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest."

Things I Learned January 22, 2014 at 01:00 AM
Since we've eliminated the fake fire issue and solved the water issue. Maybe the NIMBY issue?
UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 01:09 AM
water issue not solved. good luck with your investments.

Halliburton can always use a few more supporters/defenders/believers, Yes?

UPinSmoke January 22, 2014 at 03:22 AM
a deceptive title. 'embrace'?... The SandCastle, as the solar invention is called, is to be used in conjunction with gravity for the energy needed for fracking, . halliburton ..'has rolled out dozens' of them...so.... does that make fracking safer? -- 'Colorado: 5,100 spills'.......................................................... (though a curious nuance, this addition of the SandCastle.....) So, how much, do they 'embrace' solar?
