Our free WordPress space was limited, I was not able to add the photographs I wanted to add and I needed to figure out what was the best direction to take and how to upgrade this blog. I also needed to figure out how to sue the new editor.

Respected geologists and engineers point out that long-term deep well integrity is a serious problem; well casings are nearly certain to fail sooner or later; some already have, creating the risk that injected hazardous substances, along with dangerous gases and radiation that nature had locked safely away from us, can make their way up from deep layers via geological anomalies and out of failed casings towards or into groundwater and surface air.
