Hold Halliburton accountable for losing a radioactive device along a highway in Texas!

 

What will it take for major corporations like Halliburton to stop treating our safety like it was just a speed bump along their way to obscene profits from fracking?

It will take levying major fines on the corporation when it makes reckless, unbelievable mistakes -- like losing, for nearly a month, a radioactive rod used in the process of fracking wells in Texas, after it apparently just fell off a truck.1


That's right. Fell. Off. A. Truck.


Tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Hold Halliburton accountable for its reckless carelessness with radioactive material.


On Monday, Halliburton finally found the device -- a 7-inch rod and "category three" source of radiation used for prospecting well locations for fracking -- along a highway seven miles from the fracking site, after losing it on September 11.

This is of course far from Halliburton's biggest mishap. The company knowingly2 used faulty cement to seal the infamous Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico, which likely contributed to the worst oil spill in American history -- for which Halliburton has yet to pay any fines or spill costs, claiming their contract with BP indemnified it of any responsibility.

 

Not only is Halliburton's reckless behavior a danger to us -- but the company is actively hostile to the rules needed to protect us. Halliburton and Dick Cheney worked in 2005 to exempt fracking from regulation under the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act, now known as the "Halliburton Loophole."

The only way to change Halliburton's hostility toward public safety and environmental protection is to make it extremely costly for the company to ignore.

 

Please sign the petition to hold Halliburton accountable now.
