Who can forget when industry shill Kathy
Hill Hall tries to blow smoke up the public’s ass in the documentary Split Estate?
“I have fracking fluid taken right out of a fracking truck. I’ve had it in my mouth. I’ve tasted it. And I’m just fine.”
Susan Greene’s opinion piece in the Denver Post rips Hill a new one and so does Dr. Colborn.
“It’s nothing you’d want to put in your mouth. That’s as foolish as drinking raw sewage — and probably far more dangerous,” says Dr. Theo Colborn of the Endocrine Disruption Exchange, a Paonia-based group studying the health effects of drilling.
As it turns out
Hill Hall now claims she didn’t say what we all saw her say.
Hall — a former Mesa County commissioner and chief of the West Slope business group Club 20 — accused filmmakers of dubbing her.
“My mouth doesn’t even match the words that I’m saying at that particular time in the movie,” she said Monday.
She later conceded that she may have mentioned “something about my mouth” during the interview. “There’s nothing more dangerous in that fluid than what’s in your makeup, honey, or your toothpaste or what you use to clean your hot tub,” she added.
“I didn’t say I put it my mouth. But you know what? I wouldn’t be afraid to say that, either.”
Hall resigned from COGA last week. Lucky for her because I’d planned to challenge her to a real live swigging demonstration. I was really looking forward to seeing her swallow.
