Painting something pink doesn’t make it good

pinkdrill-500x500

I don’t understand how they thought this was a good idea, for either Korman or the Fucking company.

    I thought it was some S\M version of the Hitachi “wand”.
    Is that bad ?

    Chet Manley

    What specific “fracking chemicals” cause cancer?

    WistfulD

    Literally who knows. One of the biggest (legitimate) complaints about fracking is that the companies don’t have to say what chemicals they use.

    Greenman037

    Literally anyone can know because they have to disclose them.

    Chet Manley

    Okay, now how are these fracking chemicals causing cancer? Do they have naked women frolic in them or something?

    Greenman037

    Many are known to be carcinogenic. And now I can’t get the image of naked women frolicking out of my mind.

    Wait…That was in my mind before…Never mind.

    Chet Manley

    All I’m asking for is actual proof that fracking is directly causing cancer. If you can’t prove it, please indicate it by voting me down.

    tiki god

    it’s when it gets into the ground water that it causes problems.

    Chet Manley

    Only if they fuck it up. Tradition oil drilling can be just as problematic. Like the Gulf of Mexico.

    Goldfinger

    Yeah, but usually they don’t drill for oil near people’s drinking water resources.

    Chet Manley

    They do drill near our food sources.

    Of the 55 to 60 chemicals used: napthalene, benzyl chloride, and formaldehyde. [Sarah Palin] I should know, I can see fracking from my back yard. [/Sarah Palin]
    Groundwater contamination a couple decades down the road is also a big worry from all the salts, acids, and hydrocarbons being used. Time to sell high and gtfooh.

    Greenman037

    Wow. Okay, here we go…

    There are no known cases to date. However, many of the chemicals used are proven to cause cancer, hence the term “carcinogenic”. This is why people are all up in arms about fracking, because they use chemicals that have been proven to cause cancer.

    Chet Manley

    So there’s no evidence that fracking causes cancer. Therefore the claim made in the pic is false.

    tiki god

    he just gave you the evidence dingus

    Chet Manley

    No, he said there are no known cases.

    Goldfinger

    Pouring alcohol in your coffee doesn’t cause drunkenness.

    tiki god

    No, he said that “many of the chemicals used are proven to cause cancer”.

    pretty unambiguous.

    Chet Manley

    Many of the chemicals used to manufacture your cell phone cause cancer, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the phone itself is going to give you cancer.

    HoChunk

    You don’t drink from your phone.

    Chet Manley

    But you do hold it up to your face for long periods of time, and in your hands and your pocket, close to your genitals.

    Goldfinger

    Dude, seriously?
    You do not encorporate your cellphone.
    You do encorporate your drinking water.
    You are running out of straws.

    Chet Manley

    There’s still no known cases.

    WistfulD

    heh heh. Pink bits.

    dallasalice

    These chemicals you are so worried about are in parts per billion – even trillion – and are not a worry. The EPA is doing it’s level best to make it sound like it is dangerous but keep failing and so relies on bad information – much like global warming – err, climate change – err, whatever the newest term they have is . . .

    tiki god

    why would you think it’s parts per billion? it’s a pure chemical slurry that they’re shoving into the ground, not a homeopathic medicine

    Chet Manley

    Incorrect. It’s almost entirely water. Dallasalice is correct about it being parts per billion.

    tiki god

    5 seconds of googling have proved you wrong:
    www.google.com/search?q=chemicals+used+in+fracking

    A 2011 congressional report on the chemicals used in hydraulic fracking, states that the 14 leading hydraulic fracturing companies in the U.S. injected 10.2 million gallons of more than 650 products that contained chemicals that are known or possible human carcinogens.

    Chet Manley

    Read it again: 10.2 million gallons that CONTAINED chemicals, not 10.2 million gallons OF chemicals. You need to improve your reading comprehension.

    tiki god

    did you miss the part that the fracking guys said it was at least 1%?

    jesus, it’s like you’re willfully ignorant.

    either that or a troll, lol.

    oh Poe, you’re so hard to nail down.

    Chet Manley

    Where did you post that?

    tiki god

    from the thing I read on the internet, looks like I forgot to include that link.
