If you have ever thought about moving off the shale because of the dangers of fracking, think again. There may not be any safe havens left. An amended Railroad Commission rule about recycling may explain why. According to Gaye McElwain of the Railroad Commission of Texas, drilling muds and fluids are being used as a road base in some areas of the State. This is how industry greenwashes fracking. They are not really recycling their waste. They are just finding more creative ways in which to dispose of it. Have you ever wondered why there is so much road construction happening all around North Texas?
