  • Millions of Americans now mad at Target are flooding into Walmart and finding those low low prices. Walmart open late today and the parking lots are full. Maybe this will be a GOOD Christmas, but every Christmas is good at Walmart ALWAYS. Did you see in Milledgeville Ga. the employee"s broke out in song caroling the shoppers and the shoppers joined in. Awesome video!

    Them Waltons pretty smart like the ole man.. Did you know First Solar is working on Solar powered boats. Man they get that going and they could have thousands of ships to bring them goods to us Americans. Pretty smart bunch really ! For Madmilker to be a 1 percenter due to his fracking oil richs he sure is jealous of them there Waltons. Merry Christmas Walmart, is open late for stragglers from Possum Hollow.

  • If you’ve followed the entire debate on fracking, you probably know the drill (no pun intended) by now. Industry experts insist that their methods for hydraulically fracturing the shale beds below the earth and extracting natural gas is technologically sound and completely safe — and that the naysayers are granola-eating Luddites who oppose anything new and would prefer to live in a dark, energy-free world.

    That’s ridiculous to anyone who’s seen the devastating impact that fracking has already had on large swatches of rural America, such as upstate Pennsylvania. But a story came out in the last week that is very important — not to mention unusual. A retired top executive from Big Oil is admitting that not only is fracking hazardous to your health — but it’s worse than you think.

    Louis W. Allstadt was an executive vice president for Mobil who at one point oversaw all of the oil giant’s exploration and production operations in the Western Hemisphere. In 2000, he retired to an idyllic rural community in Cooperstown, N.Y. (yes, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame) — but then he educated himself on the fracking process, at the behest of friends after natural gas drillers began to look at rural south-central New York. He was appalled at what he learned. Allstadt recently told the website Alternet that the biggest problem is the release of methane trapped under the earth, which is happening at a greater rate than industry experts had forecast and which contributes mightily to global warming.

    He explains:

    So when you talked about “the race for what’s left,” that’s what’s going on. Both the horizontal drilling and fracturing have been around for a long time. The industry will tell you this over and over again – they’ve been around for 60 years, things like that. That is correct. What’s different is the volume of fracking fluids and the volume of flow-back that occurs in these wells. It is 50 to 100 times more than what was used in the conventional wells.

    The other [difference] is that the rock above the target zone is not necessarily impervious the way it was in the conventional wells. And to me that last point is at least as big as the volume. The industry will tell you that the mile or two between the zone that’s being fracked is not going to let anything come up.

    But there are already cases where the methane gas has made it up into the aquifers and atmosphere. Sometimes through old well bores, sometimes through natural fissures in the rock. What we don’t know is just how much gas is going to come up over time. It’s a point most people haven’t gotten. It’s not just what’s happening today. We’re opening up channels for the gas to creep up to the surface and into the atmosphere. And methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas in the short term – less than 100 years – than carbon dioxide.

    Allstadt — as a former industry official — doesn’t believe that his former cohorts are evil, but he does think they’re acting in a short-sighted fashion as they look for ways to expand domestic energy production now that the easier sources have been largely tapped out. He also believes that the gas companies are putting too much faith in their ability to cap the wells:

    What you [also] don’t know [is that] when you plug that well, how much is going to find its way to the surface without going up the well bore. And there are lots of good indications that plugging the well doesn’t really work long-term. There’s still some pressure down there even though it’s not enough pressure to be commercially produced. And sooner or later the steel casing there is going to rust out, and the cement sooner or later is going to crumble. We may have better cements now, we may have slightly better techniques of packing the cement and mud into the well bore to close it up, but even if nothing comes up through the fissures in the rock layers above, where it was fracked, those well bores will deteriorate over time. And there is at least one study showing that 100 percent of plugs installed in abandoned wells fail within 100 years and many of them much sooner.

    So far, Allstadt’s activism has been largely in his local community in New York. As such, he’s been part of a hugely successful campaign, since state officials have continued to extend a statewide moratorium on the controversial process. But I hope he brings his knowledge and his insights to a national audience — as soon as possible. America needs to hear Allstadt’s message before the damage to the global climate is too far gone.

  • Water from near hydraulic fracturing drilling sites had greater hormone-disrupting properties than water from areas without the drilling, report researchers.

    The researchers also found that 11 chemicals commonly used in the controversial “fracking” method of drilling for oil and natural gas are endocrine disruptors.

    Endocrine disruptors interfere with the body’s endocrine system, which controls numerous body functions with hormones such as the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone androgen.

    Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as those studied in this research, has been linked by other research to cancer, birth defects, and infertility.

    “More than 700 chemicals are used in the fracking process, and many of them disturb hormone function,” says Susan Nagel, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and women’s health at the University of Missouri School of Medicine. “With fracking on the rise, populations may face greater health risks from increased endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure.”

    The study involved two parts. The research team performed laboratory tests of 12 suspected or known endocrine-disrupting chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, and measured the chemicals’ ability to mimic or block the effects of the reproductive sex hormones estrogen and androgen.

    They found that 11 chemicals blocked estrogen hormones, 10 blocked androgen hormones, and one mimicked estrogen.

    The researchers also collected samples of ground and surface water from several sites, including:

    Accident sites in Garfield County, Colorado, where hydraulic fracturing fluids had been spilled

    Nearby portions of the Colorado River, the major drainage source for the region

    Other parts of Garfield County, Colorado, where there had been little drilling

    Parts of Boone County, Missouri, which had experienced no natural gas drilling

    The water samples from drilling sites demonstrated higher endocrine-disrupting activity that could interfere with the body’s response to androgen and estrogen hormones.

    Drilling site water samples had moderate-to-high levels of endocrine-disrupting activity, and samples from the Colorado River showed moderate levels. In comparison, the researchers measured low levels of endocrine-disrupting activity in the Garfield County, Colorado, sites that experienced little drilling and the Boone County, Missouri, sites with no drilling.

    “Fracking is exempt from federal regulations to protect water quality, but spills associated with natural gas drilling can contaminate surface, ground, and drinking water,” Nagel says.

    “We found more endocrine-disrupting activity in the water close to drilling locations that had experienced spills than at control sites. This could raise the risk of reproductive, metabolic, neurological, and other diseases, especially in children who are exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”
