Green: Sacramento Let Californians Down By Allow Drinking Water To Be Contaminated

Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources of California inadvertently allowed oil companies to inject wastewater into hundreds of disposal wells in protected aquifers. The question is how do you "inadvertently" allow this to happen? The excuse is, get this, bad record keeping.

The problem is that this will be allowed to continue even though it is against the federal law.

How does that make any sense?  The problem is politics at any level of government comes down to just who has the keep pockets and what the public is willing to allow politicians and appointees to get away with.

High levels of benezene were detected.  It increases the risk of cancer and bone marrow failures.  A number of other adverse health effects have been attributed to benzene (wiki).

Look, I'm for a comprehensive energy solution, oil, coal, and renewables.  But it does not mean we allow ourselves be compromised regardless where the sources, again, oil, coal, or renewables.
