GOP lawmakers try to supress fracking study

Kathleen SibeliusA group of GOP House energy leaders advised Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to exercise caution in a possible study on the health impacts of natural-gas drilling.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering examining a potential link between hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and drinking water contamination.

The lawmakers sent a letter to Sebelius Friday stating that such a study could stymie job growth if not properly executed. They expressed concern in the letter that naturally occurring substances in groundwater could be improperly labeled as contaminants.

“Despite the significant growth of natural gas development, we are greatly concerned that the scientific objectivity of the Department of Health and Human Services is being subverted and countless jobs could be in jeopardy,” the lawmakers said.

TVNL Comment: What absolute whores these 'lawmakers' are. The health of the nation is incidental to the profit that comes from the continuation and expansion of fracking.  This is exactly what happened when the tobacco industry spent billions to hide the horrors of smoking - resulting in the deaths of nearly half a million Americans every single year.  Wake up, America.
