For some reason yet to be explained, gas wells appear to leak everywhere on the planet but New York, Pennsylvania, and parts of Parker County, Texas. Curiously, they leak like rusty sieves in Canada, possibly due to the extreme cold and watery beer imbibed by the bi-lingual casing crews, eh ?
Richard found these leakers described in a published scientific journal – by Canadians (caution advised, eh ?)
But these leaky Canadian wells, you will note, are nowhere near any Range Resources shale gas wells in Parker County, Texas . . .
Nor do they leak anywhere near Cabot’s shale gas wells in Pennsylvania – according to the scientists at Cabot:
Nor do they leak anywhere near the Penn State Institute of Fracking Apologists
The geology and hydrology of New York evidently prevents this from happening, according to the scientists at the DEC. Because, if it did, that would exacerbate global warming, which, according to the scientists at the DEC, does not exist
Therefore, since there is no global warming, gas wells cannot leak. Except, evidently in Canada. And offshore. And Australia. And odd-ball places like that.
