Findings have led the state to issue new fracking permit conditions, the most cautious yet put in place in the nation

State geologists in Ohio have for the first time linked earthquakes in a geologic formation deep under the Appalachians to gas drilling, leading the state to issue new permit conditions in certain areas that are among the nation's strictest.

A state investigation of five small tremors in the Youngstown area, in the Appalachian foothills, last month has found the high-pressure injection of sand and water that accompanies hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the Utica Shale may have increased pressure on a small, unknown fault, said State Oil & Gas Chief Rick Simmers. He called the link "probable."

4 years after gulf spill, questions on long-term health 11.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Chalmette, La. • When a BP oil well began gushing crude into the Gulf of Mexico four years ago, fisherman George Barisich used his boat to help clean up the millions of gallons that spewed in what would become the worst offshore spill in U.S. history. Like so many Gulf Coast residents who pitched in after the April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig, Barisich was motivated by a desire to help and a need to make money — the oil had destroyed his livelihood. Today he regrets that dec...

Oil found in other Grand Staircase monument washes 11.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Federal officials are now finding old oil deposits in drainages in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument near the one found carpeted with oil last month. The new finds suggest that petrochemical contamination from the Upper Valley oil field is more widespread than previously known, yet has only gotten serious consideration in recent weeks. The oil appears to have been deliberately covered with dirt and gravel in a manner consistent with remediation techniques of the 1970s. Monument sp...

Why US fracking companies are licking their lips over Ukraine 10.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
From climate change to Crimea, the natural gas industry is supreme at exploiting crisis for private gain what I call the shock doctrine The way to beat Vladimir Putin is to flood the European market with fracked-in-the-USA natural gas, or so the industry would have us believe. As part of escalating anti-Russian hysteria, two bills have been introduced into the US Congress one in the House of Representatives ( H.R. 6 ), one in the Senate ( S. 2083 ) that attempt to fast-track liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports, all in the name of helping Europe to wean itself from Putin's fossil fuels, and enhancing US national security. According to Cory Gardner, the Republican congressman who introduced the House bill, "opposing this legislation is like hanging up on a 911 call from our friends and allies". And that might be true as long as your friends and allies work at Chevron and Shell, and the emergency is the need to keep profits up amid dwindling supplies of conventional oil and ...
