  • The good news -- the cattle get a 6 month reprieve.

    I'm thinking those cattle are ruined now. Why all the tests? Maybe they should be put down, try to make bp pay for them and end that part of this experiment?

    You think it's bad in the Gulf? Soon the Halliburton "frack-water" will really begin to seep from these so-called 'deep' injection wells in N. Louisiana and Arkansas.

    Along the river banks up here there are spots where every other tree is standing dead, just like beetle kill in Colorado. Like to drink from the Colorado River, same situation there too!

    TS:It's not only the trees. While travelling across country, I noticed the wildlife, especially the birds, are disappearing. Most of our water supply in the US is not drinkable. This must kill an amazing amount of animals and people who depend on clean water. Most of the contamination is this frack-water you talk about. It has killed the Bayous here in the Panhandle. The US is second to China as being the worlds worst polluter.
