The Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation committee members were taking comments about an out-of-state company’s proposal to export its toxic fracking waste water into Nebraska, and move 80 truckloads carrying 10,000 barrels per day of pollution, to be dumped into a disposal well in Sioux County. This would essentially transfer all the risk onto Nebraskan farmers and ranchers.
They were be left speechless by James Osborne, a farmer and a former employee in the oil and gas industry. His intention was to explain to the committee what fracking does to the environment, particularly to a farming and livestock-intensive state like Nebraska. He single-handedly brought the discussions to a halt. James was arguing against fracking operations in Nebraska, and he brought in three cups of fracking water which he then offered to each of the members, asking them to take a sip.
