Congressman Pearce Pushes Fracking in New Mexico Despite Risk of Sinkhole Collapse …

U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) sent a letter this week urging the New Mexico Bureau of Land Management director to resolve administrative protests and fast-track a federal fracking plan near Carlsbad, N.M., even though fracking-induced earthquakes could trigger collapse of a massive brine well sinkhole in Carlsbad. Officials say there is already a high probability that the Carlsbad brine well will collapse, which they estimate would result in more than $1 billion in damages, as well as lost lives.
