quote: A) Chemicals used in fracking have been traced in surface water hundreds of miles away from the nearest fracking sites in the United States.
quote: B) Well established evidence (thousands of recorded instances) of "flammable water" in the United States has been found near fracking sites.
quote: That's pretty good evidence that the chemicals weren't from the fracking site then. Water in underground aquifers generally travels about an inch to a yard a day. The fastest flowrates (nearby rivers) are about a dozen yards a day. At these speeds it would take about 30 years best case for chemicals to leech 100 miles. On average it would take 500 to 20,000 years.
quote: "The water has to be pure and more than half Germany's brewers have their own wells which are situated outside areas that could be protected under the government's current planned legislation on fracking. You cannot be sure that the water won't be polluted by chemicals so we have urged the government to carry out more research before it goes ahead with a fracking law. "
quote: "Purified water is not good for you in general"THAT is the biggest load of crap ever.
