But the ballot initiatives to promote local control was derailed by turncoats. . . before it ever came to a vote. With that confused legal background, Boulder County extended its ban as a kind of "frack you" to the frackers.

The authors conclude, " Unfortunately, there is no defined setback distance that assures safety" - and a few hundred feet between a home & well pad is further proof of the depraved indifference and recklessness that the Oil & Gas Industry, captured regulators and elected 'industry whores' demonstrate towards the American People. Adequacy of Current State Setbacks for Directional High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing in the Marcellus, Barnett, and Niobrara Shale Plays Marsha … [Read more...] about Setbacks From Wellpads Woefully Inadequate To Protect Nearby Residents

Colorado fracking flood footage and video - which, after a three day blackout, finally was reported by the media, a bit. Footage speaks for itself - not only is it not wise to frack in a floodplain or in the watershed of a river, but it's not real wise to put tank batteries, compressor stations and waste pits there either - unless you want frack filth in your water. Oil and gas industry, regulators scramble in post-flood Colorado. Weld County in northeastern Colorado, one of the most drilled … [Read more...] about Colorado Fracking Flood Disaster

The Longmont frack ban trial court's decision was based on a 1992 court ruling that predates shale fracking. So this is a glaring example of where the case law and the legislation have not kept up with the technology. The Colorado law assumes that oil and gas is extracted from a "pool" of porous permeable rock - and that such a reservoir can be tapped underneath a neighboring political boundary. Such is not the case with fracking - the extent of the area tapped is a function of the length … [Read more...] about Fracked Anywhere in Colorado ?
Colorado appears to be caving in on local land use control of fracking. If there is no local control over fracking, anybody can get fracked. Step One in the Fracker's playbook is to disarm local communities, because that is the last defense against getting fracked. Fracking regulations are strongest at the local level and weakest at the national level: 1. The Feds do not regulate fracking because of the Halliburton Loophole 2. States do not adequately regulate fracking because state … [Read more...] about Colorado Cave-In On Local Control ?
Composed almost entirely of frackers in favor of fracking. Anywhere they fracking want to frack. Go figure . . .

Local communities should have a say in whether or not to frack. Home Rule applies to shale gas industrialization in almost every state. As it should. Even the chairman of Exxon agrees with that. There are no amount of pizzas that a town can come up with to offset the downsides of fracking after the frack - the town must protect itself proactively with its land use ordinances. It must exercise Home Rule over fracking. There is a ballot initiative in the works to give Colorado municipalities the … [Read more...] about Home Rule for Colorado
