As always John Bartlit “hit the nail right on the head” with his usual completely scientifically factual and therefore honestly presented article entitled:
Key to fracking is tell-tale data, Los Alamos edition that was published Thursday.
As LANL’s conscientious and highly trained water-treatment/pollution, waste-disposal and associated analytical chemists, geologists contractors etc. have known so well for the past 70+ years, the use of harmless chemical tracers that reveal pathways of pollutants in air, water, the body and food chains are vital to ensuring their sources can be located and prevented from further contamination. Their efforts although mainly satisfactory are never complete and are amongst the most important continuing scientific challenges at the lab.
Returning to John’s specific discussion about the need for such date from the proposed fracking and oil-shale operations in New York State, once again we are up against the “commercial gorilla in the room” who is thinking only in terms of short-term energy supply and financial gain.
