The Map of Your World


This tells you every­thing you need to know. No kid­ding.

I real­ly am going to con­cen­trate more on this fine place I've dug for myself, soon. In the inter­im, I've dis­cov­ered that gas and oil leas­es in my home coun­ty, Brad­ford Coun­ty in Penn­syl­va­nia, has seen a huge uptick in gas and oil leas­es in the last few years, with plans to use injec­tion well meth­ods in which the poi­soned waste-water is allowed to drain back into the ground…hmm. Hope you like a lit­tle crap in your water, folks. And trucks on your back­roads break­ing shit down.

I don't know enough about it yet, but I don't trust that any­one will do the right thing any­more. Here's an arti­cle from the Wyalus­ing Rock­et-Couri­er for more:

It seems it is only a mat­ter of time, and not all that much time at that, before there are injec­tion wells in Brad­ford Coun­ty. That was one of the points made Tues­day night at Towan­da High School by a pan­el of experts on the process. The oth­er point, expressed over and over again, is that this deep under­ground dis­pos­al of gas pro­duc­tion wastewater—where hun­dreds of thou­sands of gal­lons of water are uti­lized at each gas well site for drilling and fracturing—is seem­ing­ly safe with mul­ti­ple pro­tec­tions in place to ensure drink­ing water is not taint­ed.
