West Virginia Fracking Pollution Increases

[PADA: Fracking waste and ground water seepage seems to be creeping into everything over there. It almost seems self-evident that the GBC's New Vrndavana community should not have taken big sums of money from this industry, and allowed this industry to have "fracking property rights" over any of New Vrndavana's West Virginia land.

Oh swell! "Toxic, poisonous, endocrine inhibiting, cancer causing, adversely afflicts reproductive organs." Is this what we want in our ground water i.e. bathing and drinking water (and for our cows') etc. on our holy property? Oh no!

Even I did not know things like Diesel Fuel are used in fracking chemicals, which -- "includes known carcinogens such as benzene, toluene and xylene that poses a heightened risk of cancer, kidney damage, liver damage, or harm to the nervous system if ingested by humans."

I am not sure if the argument "the ground water everywhere is affected -- so it does not matter if we do it or not" matters. Devotees of Krishna should simply not participate in this business to send a message that its not a great program for human beings. Meanwhile, the GBC apparently does have a spare $20,000,000 to sue the Prabhupadanuga devotees, money is no object when it comes to buying lawyers? ys pd
