Fracked in Elko County
The open communications forum on fracking hosted by the Bureau of Land Management at the Red Lion March 14th proved to be a love fest between the BLM and Nobel Energy.
Gary Johnson, the BLM Deputy State Director for Minerals, was there to tell us how much money had been brought in from fracking operations nationwide and to assure us that the BLM was going to monitor surface disturbances. Jeff Schwarz was there from Nobel Gas was there to tell us that we didn’t need to be concerned about the contamination of our ground water and could go back to sleep.
Schwarz presented a list of chemicals they were going to be using in their hydraulic fracturing operations along with a listing of how these chemicals were already used in other household products; implying that because they are already in use, that putting them into our drinking water was OK. Schwarz made reference to the FracFocus website, saying that there was transparency in what chemicals they were going to be using.
But when asked if he could assure Elko County that BTEX compounds, and known carcinogens, like known carcinogens were not going to be use in the drilling process, Schwatz hesitantly responded yes, but quickly added that there are proprietary chemicals that will be used. Proprietary, meaning secret.
This lack of disclosure of what chemicals are actually going to be injected underground is known as the Halliburton loophole and makes the listing of chemicals on the FracFocus website both deceptive and meaningless. The Halliburton loophole refers to the Halliburton legal team finding a loophole in the Safe Drinking Water Act that exempts fracking operations from having to disclose what chemicals they are injecting underground.

RE: Continental Divide-Creston Natural Gas Development Project (CD-C Project)
Dear Mr. Ames,
We are against this massive fracking Continental Divide-Creston Natural Gas Development Project (CD-C Project) and ask you to stop this project before it ruins the environment and endangers America’s native wild horses in Wyoming.
The drilling proposed will not only displace native wild horses but also threaten the wild herds with environmental dangers/disease.
If you choose to go forward with this during the environmentally risky CD-C Project then we ask that you do the following: More

we petition the obama administration to:
WITHDRAW BLM OIL/GAS LEASES FROM COLORADO’s PREMIER ORGANIC FARMING REGION AND UPDATE BLM’s 25-YEAR-OLD LAND USE PLAN
Tell BLM: Don’t Open Colorado’s Organic Farms to Oil and Gas Drilling/Fracking
Western Colorado’s North Fork Valley is Colorado’s only rural winery region and has the state’s highest concentration of organic farms and ranches. It is an intimate mixture of private, small family farms–many certified by the USDA as organic–and public lands, including many managed by the BLM.
The BLM is an agency within the U.S. Dept. of Interior that manages most of the public’s minerals. BLM once wrote a land use plan for the area, twenty-five years ago. Now it seeks to use that plan–even though it never even considered oil and gas development in the North Fork to be much of a possibility–to open the area for drilling and fracking.
Finish the land use plan update and take these leases off the table

The US National Energy Policy of 2005 was created under Dick Cheney’s Energy Task Force in secret meetings; evidence shows that the energy industry influences foreign policy and may have led us into the Iraq War. Cheney’s National Energy Policy is also responsible for electricity deregulation scams, corporate welfare for energy producers and many other problems that we are still suffering from today. Deregulated electricity problems in Texas and other states are a direct result of Cheney’s National Energy Policy.

This is about the wild horse roundups. BUT, ranch owners who own cattle and sheep should pay attention to the following, and wonder what water or land will be left for your livestock grazing in the future. Why do you think the DOI is removing all of the wild horses off our public lands? For you?

Subject: White Mountain/Little Colorado Environmental Assessment Comments
Dear Mr. D’Ewart:
In this BLM Environmental Assessment, Section 1.2 PURPOSE AND NEED, the EA states:
“The need for this action is to remove excess animals in order to achieve a thriving natural ecological balance between wild horse populations, wildlife, livestock, vegetation, and water resources and to protect the range from deterioration associated with overpopulation of wild horses as authorized under Section 1333 (b) (2) of the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses & Burros Act (1971).”
My comments are:
1) One of my biggest concerns is that this Environmental Assessment is based on flawed reasoning and for reasons listed below is, basically, fraud against the American public, no matter what “authorizations” it hides behind. More

flamable drinking water, fracking, fractured hydraulics, Gasland: the movie, Halliburton, natural gas
About the film
“The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.”
GASLAND will be broadcast on HBO through 2012. To host a public screening in your community please click here. The DVD will be on sale in December 2010.
