Here's a blog write-up that links back to its source stories, articles, and documents (saving me a whole lot of work)

Energy Industry Fights Chemical Disclosure
Natural Gas Companies Want to Prevent Oversight of Fracking

from: Energy Industry Reps Greet House Fracking Probe With Shrug

"The EPA study, released in 2004, found that hydraulic fracturing posed "little or no threat" to drinking water. Environmentalists contended that the study was scientifically unsound, but Congress endorsed it and used it to override the earlier decision to regulate hydraulic fracturing under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Lawmakers specifically exempted the practice from federal regulation in a broad 2005 energy law." 

We are all equal under the law ... unless you can get a waiver or exemption.

Yep,
I was just recently watching a C S I show where they were investigating gas in water from the result of fracking.
You never know what can happen underground. I had a well driven for our house uears back. We can good water for about 17 years and then it started to get sulphury. The sulphur got stronger over time.

I've lost all faith in the "scientific community". They, like our politicians, are merely sock puppets for their corporate sponsors.

Meanwhile, be sure to light your water from a safe distance before drinking it!

They are drilling in northern Michigan, lets see how fast they can destroy the worlds largest supply of fresh water.
