Would Nichols Hills be happy with a "transformed" water supply?
Mr. Chief Executive McClendon lives in Nichols Hills which gets its water from wells charged by ground water.
Would the good affluent folks of Nichols Hills be happy to have their water wells "transformed" by the vandalism of fracking used in Mr. McClendon's technology?
"Today the town of Nichols Hills has 19 deep wells operating when needed, and there is sufficient pure water to take care of the needs of the town. At that present time, the town of Nichols Hills is not dependent on Oklahoma City for its water supply... "

Why does McClendon think other locations in America would be glad to have their ground water "transformed" by the vandalism of fracking?

The Environmental Protection Agency is now studying its safety in shale drilling. The agency studied use of the process in shallower drilling operations in 2004 and found that it was safe.
