What bothers me is the amount of misinformation about this subject. O&G companies aren't perfect. I've got firsthand knowledge of that. We do need domestic energy to keep our nation safer, and natural gas from water fracked wells is an important part of that energy. No matter what side you are on, for or against domestic natural gas production, people should realize that it is NOT hydraulic fracturing that causes increased methane in well water near drilling activity. The causes can be numerous, including ground disturbance by shallow water wells used for drilling water, vibration from rigs, etc, not fracking. The distance between water reservoirs and natural gas reservoirs is typically thousands of feet, separated by steel and cement when a frack job is done. And enough about all the "chemicals" used. Oil and gas reservoirs are naturally full of naturally occurring chemicals such as benzine in small amounts, it's been there for millenia. The state of Colorado recently put out a statement disputing so called "facts" in the movie Gassland, which has caused such as stir. See it here: http://cogcc.state.co.us/library/GASLAND%20DOC.pdf
The producers of this highly charged "docudrama" did not even bother to ask state regulatory agencies important questions before making the movie and presented lots of things as "fact".
