    Here we go again, they have done things, and they cannot control these situations they have created.
    You cannot abuse this earth, it will eventually turn on you.

    Lets see, we have BP, Fukushima, Sinkholes, Dumping, Fracking, Drilling, Experiments they don't tell us about, Problems with other Nuclear Plants, War. I think we have enough to do us all in.
    Great Job (Sarc).

    It's not the earth turning. It's man destroying it.

    It's formal, Texas Brine is billed for government expenses. Now it will go to court, where they will probably explain that DNR gave them the permit to deposit fracking sludge, and they don't owe anything.

    By the way, the fracking sludge probably originated in Arkansas, because they made it illegal to dig a shallow well and dump the sludge in the ground, which is SOP in most places. The sludge was hauled down to Texas with the drilling companies who used it, who hired Texas Brine to take it off their hands. Mixed in with the stuff off the bottom of the Gulf from the Deep Horizon , laced with Corexit, it makes a pretty nasty compound for both salt and fractured strata.

    But remember, DNR gave them the permit to dump it there along with the radiation laced crude.

    My guess is that Texas Brine will get off, despite the contract they signed with Occidental and the permit with DNR. Federal law says they did nothing wrong. It will take a few appeals, but I doubt they'll get any fines or settlements against them to stick.

    Trying to explain how they breached the wall of a salt cavern to the outside perimeter is going to be the hardest fact to defend if they made the cavern to sell the removed brine to industry. Then selling cavern space for storage will be a minor detail.

    Tell me am I ou to lunch, if you continue to deplet the oil and gas in the gulf and once removed under great pressure the pressure must decrease overall and therefore the strata on top will subside, does logic dictate, tell me.

    A small nuclear device 1000+ ft. down will stop the Big Hum.

    The problem is big government however. They do not know how to react to catastrophes. The sure know how to talk about them for years and years however. All the finger pointing delays solutions also.

    It is a matter of moving in quickly, controlling the situation and then the sending out of bills.
