Advanced oxidation technology to help eliminate chemical use during hydraulic fracturing operations – WaterWorld.

Maybe Drew Bledsoe found a true calling – rescuing Appalachia from big gas and the frackers!  Yes, this is the former NFL quarterback.


Where’s the Tea Party?

Interestingly, it seems that our constitutional rights, along with the environment, are under siege here in PA. Consider the recent reporting on the dumping of radioactive gas drilling wastewater in concert with this:

Pa Constitution, Article I Section 27 – Declaration of Rights: “The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people. ”

Now, one would think that a trampling of one of my basic constitutional rights would draw the ire of the Tea Party, at least our local chapter. Uh, this ain’t happening.
