Shale Rock contains uranium by Gudrun responding to “How to Extract Responsibly”

The comments on the NY Times article “How to Extract Gas Responsibly” by Gudrun from Independence, NY deserves to be blogged….. “Shale rock contains uranium and is found by the Geiger counter ticking. Uranium produces radioactive radon gas which is likely also to be liberated from fracking along with the methane. Industry has not revealed the radon level at the wellhead getting a ride with the methane.

Using the gas immediately will mean radon gas has not decayed – half life is 3.9 days. Radon gas will not burn and is inert chemically. Radon gas will be piped into NYC with the SPECTRA pipeline that will fasttrack the methane into the cities kitchen stoves – the worst room in the house- radon progeny will land on the food and be inhaled by the cook leaning over the stove as the food is cooking…

Radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer death after smoking and there has not been a assessment how much more lung cancer will be caused by using methane at the wellhead immediately for petrochemical industry or piping it quickly into the large customer base such as NYC — Mayor Bloomberg are you listening?

Radon gas and its progeny can be filtered out of the gas by storing it in a sandstone depleated gas storage fields for a couple of weeks and these fields are plentyful in Pa and NY.

However that is never discussed because the specialists think the public does not know about it and why raise an issue that people don’t know about – never mind that we pay these specialists to think around corners.”

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.

    • If you go to the recent New York Times story (link above is in my blog) and if U R able to still comment, you can ask the writer “Gudrun” to contact you….I do not know how to find this person, but love their writing.
