What will it take for major corporations like Halliburton to stop treating our safety like it was just a speed bump along their way to obscene profits from fracking?It will take levying major fines on the corporation when it makes reckless, unbelievable mistakes — like losing, for nearly a month, a radioactive rod used in the process of fracking wells in Texas, after it apparently just fell off a truck.1That's right. Fell. Off. A. Truck.On Monday, Halliburton finally found the device — a 7-inch rod and "category three" source of radiation used in prospecting well locations for fracking — along a highway seven miles from the fracking site, after losing it on September 11.This is of course far from Halliburton's biggest mishap. The company knowingly2 used faulty cement to seal the infamous Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico, which likely contributed to the worst oil spill in American history — for which Halliburton has yet to pay any fines or spill costs, claiming its contract with BP indemnified it of any responsibility.Not only is Halliburton's reckless behavior a danger to us — but the company is actively hostile to the rules needed to protect us. Halliburton and Dick Cheney worked in 2005 to exempt fracking from regulation under the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act, now known as the "Halliburton Loophole."The only way to change Halliburton's hostility toward public safety and environmental protection is to make it extremely costly for the company to ignore.Please click below to automatically sign the petition:

Dear Readers, I know that I am suppose to e-mail this and not blog this, but I am a blogger not an e-mailer, so I am blogging instead, But Either Way We Need To Wake Up To The Scientific Fact of Global Warming/Climate Change--The Religious Right can deny it all they want, along with Big Business (coal/gas/oil companies) and even the Republican Party, Who Need to Wake Up And Smell The Coffee--Denying Climate Change is like stepping out on a rainy day and believing if you imagine sunshine then it will become instantly a nice sunny day--AS IF THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN--WHICH IS WHY The U.S. House of Representitives need to hear from us all with--->
Did you hear what Rep. Paul Broun said at a Georgia church? According to him, evolution, embryology and the Big Bang Theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell." This same guy is on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee. Um… what?
Broun is entitled to his own religious beliefs. But if they don't square with scientific fact, he has no business making science policy based on them. I signed this petition asking the GOP leadership to remove him from the committee, and I'm hoping you will too. Here's the link:
