Right before Christmas, there was another study from Wyoming showing that fracking doesn’t pollute drinking water. Once again, environmentalists have been discredited with their theory that the decades-old method of extracting natural gas via hydraulic fracturing isn’t messing with people’s water. In 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency declared that they were no longer going to supply Dimock, PA with alterative drinking water supplies after their review found the level of contaminates were naturally occurring, and that treatment systems could reduce the level of contaminants in a handful of homes (all five) where they did have some health concerns. Yet, their overall investigation found that the levels of containments didn’t reach levels that would require further federal action. In short, fracking wasn’t polluting the water. Moreover, a Yale study later confirmed that fracking doesn’t pollute ground water.
Wyoming regulators have found hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, did not likely contaminate water supplies in the town of Pavillion four years after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted its own botched investigation. 
State officials published findings Monday showing groundwater contamination near Pavillion was not likely caused by fracking, but instead by gas that naturally seeped into groundwater wells. The state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) says the “[e]vidence suggests that upward gas seepage… was happening naturally before gas well development.”
“It is unlikely that hydraulic fracturing fluids have risen to shallower depths intercepted by water- supply wells,” DEQ writes in its 30-month investigation of Pavillion’s water.
“Evidence does not indicate that hydraulic fracturing fluids have risen to shallow depths intersected by water-supply wells.”
“The likelihood that the hydraulic fracture well stimulation treatments… employed in the Pavillion Gas Field have led to fluids interacting with shallow groundwater… is negligible,” DEQ adds.
Folks, this is good news.

Watch: Navy Captain Just Blew The Lid Off Of Why Iran REALLY Captured US Sailors
"To send a clear message to..."

The Iranian regime detained 10 United States sailors to publicly embarrass America, according to retired Navy Capt. Chuck Nash.

Nine men and one woman were detained by Iranian officials for 16 hours after they drifted into Iranian waters.

Nash, now a Fox News military analyst, said in a Thursday interview on Fox’s American Newsroom the footage of a sailor apologizing was a deliberate attempt to show U.S. weakness. Nash said he believes Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the decision to release the footage because the group detaining the sailors was the Iranian Republican Guard Navy, which reports directly to Khamenei.

“This was done intentionally and it was done to further embarrass the United States” Nash said. “And to send the clear message to the Gulf Arabs: If the Americans won’t stand up for themselves, they’re certainly not going to stand up for you. We’re the big dog now.”
 Nash also questioned the apologizing sailor’s training in code of conduct and rules of engagement in enemy territory. Nash said someone in that position should have been fully trained on handling enemy situations.

“If he hasn’t, I would want to know why somebody in that position was not sent through SERE (Survival Evasion, Resistance and Escape) school because he should have been and I think, had he been, he may not have been as free with the information,” Nash said, adding that no one knows the duress the sailor may have been under.

Nash’s comments are in direct contrast of those coming out of the State Department. State Department spokesman John Kirby said in an interview on Hannity the quick release of the sailors occurred because of improved relations between the U.S. and Iran. Secretary of State John Kerry issued the same comments earlier.
