>First, there is no reason to believe that list is exhaustive. According to the page itself, it is "a partial list of the chemical constituents in additives that are used or have been used in fracturing operations."
It a comprehensive list provided by the major fracking companies as to the compounds used in the last five years.
> It was only released in 2011 in response to a congressional investigation, having been held secret for 60 years.
Yeah. Four years ago. And yet you're defending people who made these claims:
"Like the fracking example parent mentioned; nobody is able to research their methods and the compounds used, because trade secrets"
"There is no scientific literature on how nasty fracking fluid is (blatantly not just inert chemicals) because the companies using it refuse to disclose what's in it."
My purpose in posting here is to note that these claims are, in fact, factually wrong.
>Perhaps you are willing to have your dinner grown next to a factory that can hold its chemical waste secret for 60 years, and then be unable to regulate that waste for another few years or decades, waiting for someone to bother to measure their health effects.
Clearly, your logic is, "Well, ShakaUVM corrected a factual error in two posters, therefore he must hate the environment and want everyone to get cancer."
Perhaps you should think that through a little more next time.
