ALEC seeks legislative support to HIDE the toxic chemicals being pumped into the ground.
Water is getting scarcer.
Yet our government is allowing drilling companies to inject massive amounts of water, mixed with unknown chemicals, into the ground.
Not only is the injected-water no longer potable. It will sit in the ground for centuries and never become potable.
Meanwhile some chemicals are migrating into water tables and aquifers.
Anyone who knows about water resources will tell you that an aquifer is more valuable than gold. It is an underground reservoir. That's where well water comes from.
Once you have tainted an aquifer it is lost -- forever.
Once you overdraft an aquifer and it collapses it is lost -- forever.
Now ALEC is strong-arming our legislators to hide and cover up exactly what they are injecting into our ground.
This is serious!
Where's the outrage?
Where is the transparency in our government?
Where is the accountability?
