Fracking; a 60 year track record of safety

Don't take my word for it; here's the truth straight from the website of a major fracking contractor!

In fact, Devon Energy bill themselves as a pioneer in the evolution of hydraulic fracturing technologies, and have won awards by the bushel-full for their environmentally sensitive and employee-friendly initiatives.

So what's with all these folks and their myriad claims of mysterious ill effects that they attribute to fracking practices?

Obviously the regulatory environment in which the gas and oil companies operate is geared to serve the interests of the industry, not the interests of the public whom they are supposedly charged with protecting.

Shouldn't the burden of proof lie with those who claim that injecting poisonous chemicals deep into the earth is safe, rather than with the small people whose lives are being destroyed by the practice?
