Turns out to be in New York state, in addition to Ohio, where Fracksylvania’s toxic radioactive frack sludge is too hot to handle – so the Ohio landfills can’t take it. Because
shale is radioactive, drilling horizontally through it and bringing the
drill cuttings and contaminated drilling fluids (“mud”) back to the
surface is basically mining radioactive material. Then fracking
it with a few million gallons of toxic fluid is “solution mining” the
radioactive and toxic materials out of the shale – in the form of
flowback – which is either recycled, which concentrates the toxic
radioactive materials, or processing it into a toxic radioactive sludge.
Then there is the backflow of frack sand – fine silica, which of
course what causes sillicosis. All of which the fracking gasholes have to get rid of somewhere . . . like a landfill. Or a dirt road. Or a trout stream.
