Vanm de Site van Groenlinks Boxtel:

Ze balen ervan dat het schaliegas in Tsjechie en Roemenie niet gewonnen gaat worden, hebben zich totaal niet verdiept in wat Kraken inhoud (fracking) en geloven *blind* in wat de lobbyisten van Chevron ze wijsmaken…

Dergelijke signalen zijn verontrustend voor Polen, dat over schaliegasreserves beschikt van naar schatting 2.000 miljard kubieke meter [waarvan 346 à 768 miljard kubieke meter gewonnen kan worden, red.]. Die reserves behoren tot de grootste van Europa en zouden ons onafhankelijk kunnen maken van de gasleveranties van Gazprom [een Russische energiegigant, red.],

Hydrochloric Acid 007647-01-0 Helps dissolve minerals and initiate cracks in the rock Acid

Tetrakis Hydroxymethyl-Phosphonium Sulfate 055566-30-8 Eliminates bacteria in the water that produces corrosive by-products Biocide
Tetrakis (hydroxymethyl) phosphonium sulfate is toxic to freshwater alga and freshwater invertebrates. Therefore, label instructions are required to protect these organisms and to minimize exposure to the aquatic environment.

Tetrakis (hydroxymethyl) phosphonium sulfate may enter the environment after it is used as a slimicide in oilfield operations and evaporative cooling towers.

Magnesium Peroxide 014452-57-4 Allows a delayed break down the gel Breaker
Magnesiumperoxide is het peroxide van magnesium. De stof komt voor als een wit kristallijn poeder, dat onoplosbaar is in water. Het is een sterke oxidator.
Het wordt ingezet om contaminaties in grondwater te verminderen.
(maar volgens Chevron was er toch geen comntact met het grondwater ???

One of the problems associated with identifying chemicals is that some chemicals have multiple names. For example Ethylene Glycol (Antifreeze) is also known by the names Ethylene alcohol; Glycol; Glycol alcohol;

Hydrochloric Acid: Walmend Zoutzuur, primaire agent om de Leisteen te vergassen tot Methaan
Glykol: U weet wel die “Alcohol” die aan wijn toegevoegd werd om hem zoeter te maken 🙁

Waarom doen Politici niet *zelf* een beetje hun best om na te denken en onderzoek te doen, er is feitenmateriaal te over, en we hebben zelf Gas te over, zelfs onder de Grachtengordel…
