CPT S./ANC said:Good info. Clearly hits on the issues that need improvement, what the regulatory role should be, and debunks the whole frac fluid in the water table myth.
Processes can always be improved but some people seem to hope for paralysis through analysis. Just because sometimes bad things happen; it doesn’t make the entire process or industry inherently unsafe. Planes, trains, and automobiles all crash; but we don’t stop using them. We also don’t make ridiculously restrictive laws like 10 MPH speed limits on the interstate.
Clarify the problems and move on without over on understating the situation.
