News study warns fracking is destroying US water supply – NationofChange

AGR Daily 60 Second News Bites

A new study from Duke University puts into perspective the affects fracking has on the United States’ water supply. While fracking is decades in the making, the researchers, who published the peer-reviewed findings on August 15 in Science Advances, used years of data to draw the conclusion that fracking is destroying the country’s water.

With “much of the water fracking uses lost to humanity,” the “permanent loss of water use for hydraulic fracturing from the hydrosphere” is higher than other forms of energy. The study explained that the water “is highly saline, is difficult to treat, and is often disposed through deep injection wells.” The study also revealed that “from 2011 to 2016, the water use per well increased up to 770 percent.” As Anthony Ingraffea, fracking expert and professor at Cornell University, explained in a ThinkProgress story, “that means we are losing potable water forever in many semi-arid regions…

Q: Is BP Oil Spill’s COREXIT Causing Horrific Red Tide in West Florida Now?

Sent in –

”  I’ve been curious about whether the Corexit from the BP spill could have had an impact on this disaster and look what just came up as I googled “Red Tides and Corexit”. I know the BP spill was a long time ago but maybe the Corexit is just making its way east.”

Dead Zone in Gulf of Mexico Grows – Over 6.5 thousand miles wide

The Watchers
Gulf of Mexico hypoxic ‘dead zone’ forecasted to exceed 17 250 square km (6 660 square miles)

“The June 2018 forecast of the size of the hypoxic zone also known as the ‘dead zone’ in the northern Gulf of Mexico for late July 2018 is that it will cover 17 250 km (6,660 mi) of the bottom of the continental shelf off Louisiana and Texas. The 95% confidence interval is that it will be between 14 628 and 19 727 km (5 648 and 7 617 mi). While there are more than 500 dead zones around the world, the northern Gulf of Mexico dead zone is the second largest human-caused coastal hypoxic area in the world.

Hypoxia, or low oxygen, is an environmental phenomenon where the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the water column decreases to a level that can no longer support living aquatic organisms. . . (more)

Hawaii volcano, fracking at that geothermal plant and did it cause the volcano to erupt?

This is not related to Louisiana but it touches topics we talk about here.

The Hawaii volcano eruption news is covered on the FC blog. Keith M. sent some good information about the lava-hit geothermal plant in the vicinity of the volcano, Puna.

Hawaii Volcanic Eruption Intentionally Triggered to Generate Massive Tsunami?

By Dr. Michael Salla May 15, 2018

” . . . From its inception, there has been controversy over the wisdom of the Puna Geothermal Venture being built within an active volcanic region with regularly occurring lava flows. However, what most aroused local opposition is direct scientific evidence that the powerplant has been using fracking techniques as a means of generating heat for power generation.

Scientists have established a clear linkage between fracking and earthquake activity in multiple studies . . . “

” . . . While the owners of the Puna Geothermal Venture insist that fracking has not been used, independent studies confirm otherwise. “

https://www.exopolitics.org/hawaii-volcanic-eruption-intentionally-triggered-to-generate-massive-tsunami/

” . . . It is quite plausible that the Rothschild’s 1977 support and financial backing made Bronicki and Ormat Industries obligated to do the Rothschild’s bidding in some way. This makes it possible that Bronicki was instructed by the Rothschilds to build the geothermal facility in a dangerous volcanic region for a hidden purpose despite the inherent risk in building a facility in such a dangerous area. . . . “

 

And this is a comment on the article –

“I don’t know anything abt how geothermal works but I think the article did address this?

“While the owners of the Puna Geothermal Venture insist that fracking has not been used, independent studies confirm otherwise. A Duke University study of the eight wells used by the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) concluded:

The region of high fracture density is also consistent with the areas of the highest fluid production at PGV…. The production records are proprietary to the PGV parent company, Ormat, so tables and diagrams are not included in the dissertation. However, it is indicted that wells that penetrate the area where we calculate the greatest fracture density have higher fluid flow than elsewhere in the PGV lease. [pp. 55-56]

Essentially, the Duke University study suggested that fracking was occurring at the Puna Geothermal Venture via the injection of pressurized fluids into the wells and surrounding rocks.””

On the Frankenstein experiment in the Gulf of Mexico – Cynthia

Cynthia: Flesh-Eating Synthetic Bacteria that has Gone Wild

2016 article by Jean Perie

“The reports about tests on human beings that are being routinely carried out by certain Western corporations have become a sort of a trend these days.

Among others, one can recall the story about the long struggle between civil authorities of various states and the US chemical giant Monsanto provoked by research in the potential dangers of GMO products, and the Monsanto-produced herbicide Roundup in particular. The actual damage inflicted on the agricultural business of various states is yet to be carefully assessed, but even at this stage it safe to say that Monsanto’s expansion into India and surrounding markets resulted in deaths of thousands of people.

However, in the nearest future, the planet could face yet another “monster” that was bred deep inside US corporate laboratories. We are talking about the first synthetic bacteria – Cynthia, created “to combat oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico” which, according to the various reports that are often ignored by the corporate media, has mutated and has started attacking animals and humans. Now this highly lethal microorganism is on its way to Europe.”

https://journal-neo.org/2016/09/14/cynthia-the-flesh-eating-s/

“Cynthia is the brainchild of the J. Craig Venter Institute — which was engaged in genetic engineering experiments since the beginning of the 21st century — and Synthetic Genomics Inc, and was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well. . . . “

Texas sinkholes

Strange Sounds
Over 4,000 square miles in Texas are sinking in giant holes where new lakes are forming

It began with sinkholes. Two of them, gaping mouths to nowhere opening up as if to swallow the town of Wink, Texas. As they expanded, there were fears they might collide, morphing into one giant void and swallowing up the city. Now, an unprecedented study reveals Wink and its vast sinkholes are just a tiny part of a much bigger problem. . . .

Back to Methane

Before we had reported on some big tube-shaped holes opening up around Siberia and other places that had to do with methane.

Scientist, Guy McPerson says these methane releases are a dire warning sign for human life on the planet – at the 26 min. mark –
