This is our Standing Rock

First and foremost lets define Fracking. Fracking is ANY injection of toxic waste by products into the subterranean soil.

Fracking was invented by Halliburton. They hold exclusive rights as the original owner and inventor and bears the U.S. seal of approval.

Unearthed articles from the 1960s detail how nuclear waste was buried beneath the Earth’s surface by Halliburton & Co. for decades as a means of disposing the by-products of post-World War II atomic energy production. This process dubbed fracking is Halliburton’s claim to fame.…/fracking-used-to-inject-nucle…/

It is a trademarked process allowing U.S. industries to inject slurries of toxic, carcinogenic, lethal, hazardous, deadly, compounds deep beneath the planet’s surface — as a means of “see no evil” waste disposal.

There is no escaping the fact that Halliburton invented this process, or doubt of what the intent and purpose of fracking is. The facts are documented.

The Federal government with full knowledge teamed up with Halliburton and made fracking an official toxic waste disposal method with the clear intent of covering up the disposal of lethal, dangerous, toxic, industrial waste by products.

And instead of protecting the public from hazardous waste the official statement was that fracking, the Subterranean waste disposal, is a cornerstone of the nation’s economy, relied on by the pharmaceutical, agricultural and chemical industries. It’s also critical to a future less dependent on foreign oil: Hydraulic fracturing, “clean coal” technologies, nuclear fuel production and carbon storage (the keystone of the strategy to address climate change) all count on pushing waste into rock formations below the earth’s surface.

Official statements promising it will be safe for a million years was a bold face lie. Halliburton and the government knew toxic leaks and water contamination were inevitable and unpreventable. This knowledge necessitated the Halliburton Loophole and all the exemptions to all the health and safety laws this tradmarked process was going to violate. The exemptions prove prior knowledge of wrongdoing and harm. The loopholes are an admission of guilt.

Engineer Mario Salazar, who worked as a technical expert for 25 years with the EPA’s underground injection program in Washington, told ProPublica’s Abrahm Lustgarten:

“In 10 to 100 years we are going to find out that most of our groundwater is polluted. A lot of people are going to get sick, and a lot of people may die.” That time has arrived and it is now.

So, just to be clear. What is going on in Price Canyon is fracking. And, this report is confirmation that fracking contaminates the water, the air and the soil. Proves fracking does not have one single environmental or humanitarian benefit. And no amount of exemptions or immunity will change that fact. The fact is exemptions, Halliburton Loophole, bar us from equal protection under the law and perpetuates the fraud that it is safe.

No exemption can make fracking safe. The very presence of an exemption is an admission of guilt.

Fourth Edition November 17, 2016 to our Board of Supervisors which proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Fracking is a clear and present danger to our safety health and well being calling for the Board to immediately revoke the pending permit to expand fracking in Price Canyon and order an emergency cease and desist of the toxic waste disposal in our backyard. And I invite everyone to do the same.

With this information in their possession the Board cannot deny they know that fracking is a threat to our lives and livelihood. With this information there is absolutely no reason under the sun for any more studies, data, reports or hearings on the subject.

Our lives are in danger now and the fracking must stop now.

Water is life and Fracking kills it.

This is our Standing Rock. The time is now. Demand our Board act now and revoke the permit and order an emergency cease and desist on the Price Canyon oil drilling operation.
