Money trumps prudence

 

The picture here is one of common sense and ethical behavior being given up and replaced with an attitude of do whatever it takes to make money (HCN, 8/6/12, 'The Bakken's shadow boom'). Where do they think billions of gallons of polluted water are going to go when reinjected into the very same rock formations that were just fractured by a solution of clean water plus additives (pollutants)? We soil our nest for oil and money, disregarding the oil fields' neighbors and those who will come after them.
