UT/Environmental Defense Fund study: Fracking safe, clean for groundwater

A new study conducted by the University of Texas and the radical environmentalist group Environmental Defense Fund finds no link whatsoever between hydraulic fracturing and groundwater contamination.

Safe, clean “fracking” has been conducted for 60 years, but radical environmentalists are just now making false accusations about the technology in a bid to scare Americans into opposing energy development.

“Prior reports, investigations and data gathered throughout the country on claims that the process often called fracking contaminated ground water so far don’t make the direct link, said Chip Groat, a UT geologist who is leading the study,” the Houston Chronicle reports.
