in hydraulic fracturing, Magnablend

Holy cow!

As if fracking hasn’t killed enough cows already…

And, as if that Magnablend fracking disaster hasn’t left behind a massive legacy of toxic land, dead fish, contaminated water and sick people that can never been mitigated…

Magnablend the chemical plant that mixes and distributes fracking chemicals is relocating right next to a dairy in Ellis County.

UPDATE: I am updating to include this excellent community video. See the community website, Ellis County Right to Know, for more information

UPDATE: see edited video.

Brett Shipp, WFAA, has many reports on the fire, the aftermath of contamination and health impacts and now the relocation.

Excellent video. One suggestion: do not use the industry hydrofracking. They like to put hydro in there to make it sound safe, you know, hydro = water. I suggest the use of fracking.

Thank you for the tip. We tried to use terms that people are familiar with and luckily people are becoming more informed and are beginning to see through the “hydro” term. Additionally, I think the use of “hydro” is beginning to backfire on the industry because more people are associating “hydro” with water contamination from the fracking process.

I think many people are catching on to the way they use words. I blog about the language they use and try to raise awareness.

Tragically, the people who make decisions are not as aware as the average citizen. Decision makers tend to not read blogs. They prefer to get their “facts” from industry.
