Gov. Cuomo needs to know all the facts of hydrofracking
|Hydraulic fracturing wells were exempted from the Safe Drinking Water Act by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Halliburton recently disclosed the chemicals they use in their hydraulic fracturing solutions. There are too many to list, but here are just a few:|
* Acetic anhydride, used in photo film and also to synthesize morphine into heroin.
* Methanol, used as a fuel additive and cleaning solvent, is highly toxic; ingestion of as little as 10 milliliters can cause permanent blindness.
* Ethylene glycol, used as antifreeze in automobiles, can be fatal if ingested.
* Naphtha, used as a fuel additive and cleaning solvent and in lighter fluid, is a carcinogen; exposure can lead to depression of the central nervous system.
