Since when does causality have to be such a difficult concept to grasp?? Whether its cancer clusters, elevated methane levels, ground water contamination, and induced earthquakes these things don't happen until AFTER drilling commences. Seems pretty elementary to me and yet we can't prove these things incontrovertibly due mostly to how unregulated, secretive, and profitable this disgusting business is.
