Slideshow: Wyoming’s Natural Gas Fields

Last week, we reported on evidence that hydraulic fracturing, a form of natural gas drilling used by Halliburton and other contractors in a number of states, has led to water pollution. One of those states was Wyoming, and in August, we visited the wide-open spaces of Sublette County to see the drilling fields there. You can see the audio slideshow here:

Another one of those states is Colorado, and a version of the story also ran this morning on the Denver Post’s front page.

Thanks much for this item, and hope we see some more. This is scary stuff—not because of the poisoning of the water, which is bad enough, but because of the attitude of the drillers. Ultimately, will we the people take responsibility for this?
