Great video here about a Texas town and it's groundwater.

There were two fascinating quotes by a Glenda Kuykendall.

1) "We’re in the United States, in America, where this should not happen." I think this is a prevailing attitude by many. People think because they live in the US that problems that you see in the rest of the world won't touch them. They way corporations have completely hijacked our political system situations like this are going to become common. Third world problems are coming home.

2) “Why can’t these oil companies understand?” Oh, they understand. They know they are stealing your water and killing your town. They don't care. Companies that are fracking in this Texas town are going to bleed it dry. It will become a ghost town and lives will be destroyed while the oil companies swim in money.
