Fracking debris too radioactive for waste site


Just because fracking debris was so radioactive that even a waste site didn’t want it is NO REASON to get alarmed and start whining like a girly man ecoterrorist that fracking could imperil water supplies or endanger human health. Really. Fracking is perfectly safe. The government and big business tells us so, therefore it must be true.

A truck carrying drill cuttings from a fracking site set off a radiation alarm at a landfill in Pennsylvania. Emitting gamma radiation ten times higher than the permitted level, the waste was rejected by the landfill.
