I agree that it would be nice to have consistency between federal and state regulations and applications when it comes to oil and gas. The national focus on fracking fluids may have muddied the waters, when it comes to regulations, however. Fracking fluids are only one type of risk posed by the industry—there are others. As an example, pumping spent fluids back into the ground may eventually pollute ground water, if my understanding of a recent meeting with a geologist is accurate. I wish I had a comprehensive list of all the things that could pose a risk to human health, along with potential regulations to minimize the risk, so that I could publicly start beating that drum.
