~ Hi 🙂

Reclaim the law
The Ingraffea video and information on cement failure causes etc has been linked to DOD before, and always good to see again.
But a must also look at is the energy in depth view on it all, Google ‘ Ingraffea peddles debunked research’.
Then the report … ‘Marcellus Shale…Cementing and well Casing Violations, is a good read.
The UK’s EA should take their lead from Ingraffea. He shows what’s wrong with the industry from their own data – which they invariably try and conceal. They have no answer except to attack and try and discredit him.
