    It does promise jobs and prosperity… but at what cost? Check out the movie “Gasland”.

    The country can frack itself or go green.
    .
    I think we are fracked.

    It apparently can be done fairly safely, but so far, no regulations due to industry opposition. So you have no idea whether the guys who win the bid for the drilling permit are going to do it safely, or permanently destroy an aquifer while getting out a few hours worth of natural gas.

    Actually industry track records do give us an idea of how this will likely go.

    Yes, let us inject as much fear and misinformation into this as we can, then we can further condemn the country to jobs lost and buying energy from those that hate us. It is not to deny “green” technology, but there is no way that industry could currently even handle a small percentage of our energy needs.

    As has been said before, conservation is a simple method to deter our need for foreign energy.

    Get that stuff in the aquifer and you might poison the water.

    Then after you watch that monstrosity, I dare ANY of you Libs to watch FrackNation when it comes out on video. I saw it on axs tv on Dish and it put Gasland to shame with all of it’s lies!

    Gasland and FrackNation represent opposing ideas of what happens where fracking is used. Likely there is some truth in both but to blindly accept either as the only “truth” is short sighted at best. To error on the side of caution is a wise move when talking about the potential development of long term health problems. Too often we’ve observed the oops approach, putting profit ahead of safety.

    “Fracking” has been done for decades. The “proprietary” refusal to disclose fomrulas is a serious problem that shouldn’t be, because it shouldn’t be proporietary, but open information.


    In some places, the process CAN be done reasonably, and safely. The problem is, the industry has more recently been irresponsible, dangerous, and lying.


    BP has displayed the real “ethcis” of the industry on several occassions, and the more recent fines they tell the public are just ’our investment in the Gulf", pretty well sum it up.

    Yep. And the drills, drilling fluids, natural gas, and pipe magically don’t go through the water table as they pass between the deep wells and the surface. (Wow, I knew conservatives had given up on biology, geology, atmospheric science, and arithmetic; now even simple GEOMETRY?)
