Thousands of gallons of pollution related to fracking are threatening underground watersources and the Colorado River.  Mike Ludwig of Truthout reports, “Cleanup continues at the site of an underground spill of thousands of gallons of pollution related to the oil and gas industry in the heart of Colorado’s fracking country.”

The underground leak is located near the town of Parachute and has threatened to contaminate Parachute Creek, which flows into the Colorado River.

And they told us not to worry, fracking is safe. NOT!!!
