1. The Obama administration bows down to oil companies - yet again.
Obama announced a proposed rule that would require companies to disclose chemicals used during hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking). However, in a compromise with corporations, such as ExxonMobil and XTO Energy, companies would only have to disclose such information after the well has been drilled, not before.
The original policy would have required companies to disclose chemicals at least 30 days prior to drilling. But Obama cracked under pressure by oil industry lobbyists to loosen regulations on oil & gas drilling.
Fracking has been known to contaminate groundwater, cause tremors & earthquakes, pollute at incredible rates, cause cancer from mishandling of waste & cause other health concerns from contaminated water, such as headaches, nausea, coughing & even memory loss.
