How is fracking a "green energy" job when it pollutes the water and takes water from farmers?

Harry Reed, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Clinton and Obama pushed for "green energy" jobs and a source for America to be energy independent. Fracking is being done in such a haphazard way which is polluting water supplies and the air. Fracking companies were outbidding farmers during this past summers drought for much needed water. Fracking companies are coercing local governments to place gag orders on doctors so the public remains ignorant when people become sick from drinking the polluted water. Is that what is now considered a "green energy" source? @ GEORGE B, companies that use fracking as a source to obtain natural gas use a toxic mixture of water and chemicals to break up the shale and release the natural gas. The waste water from the fracking has been dumped into rivers and streams. The waste water has been taken to water treatment plants which is incapable of removing all of the toxic chemicals and brine in the water. That is how. Any further questions or comments? @ Icoulator, so you didn't notice the names I mentioned like Obama, etc.? And you think I believe the EPA is above being corrupted and bought off? For every link you provide I could provide 2 more to counter your point but Yahoo only permits so many links so I'll just match your 4 with 4 links to show other dangers from fracking. http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/11/30-3?print http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/04/05/458478/frackers-outbid-farmers-for-water-in-colorado-drought/ http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2012/03/fracking-doctors-gag-pennsylvania http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2011/10/17/shale-fracking-causes-earthquakes/ [2] Icoulator, you agree that the EPA will have their results prove a political agenda so why did you post links with the EPA backtracking on the dangers of fracking? 3 of the 4 links you posted were about the EPA backtracking. Here's a link about the Department of Environmental Protection and how they are being politically motivated to stop giving immediate notices to people with contaminated water. http://pipeline.post-gazette.com/news/archives/24845-dep-alters-policy-on-foul-water-notifications

You forgot to explain how fracking at 20,000 - 30,000 foot depths can pollute a water supply at 50-500 feet.

Much like global warming, the pundits are using emotional issues rather than credible research. If you saw the impressive 'lighting of the water' on a news magazine show then you might also know that the segment was a set-up... More

It is cleaner burning, domestic fuel. Poor regulation by states is a major problem, too
