    I wish the USA was a fracking free-zone. And that the leave mountaintops where they belong. capitolism is not all it’s cracked up to be.

    Depending on documentaries on either side is hardly a dependable way to go. Reading scientific journals might be a better route.

    Unfortunately, many anti-intellectuals believe that scientific journals are equally as reliable as documentaries.

    I know I’d be pissed if my tap water were flammable.

    You are ignorant of the facts. Wells for water reach a depth of 300 feet or less, fracking wells reach depths of miles, the two are unrelated. Many water wells produce a water and methane mixture. It has always been this way, water and natural gas existing in the same place. Fracking has been used for over 40 years with great success.
    However, there is a movie with Matt Damon that says fracking is bad so that ends the debate.

    1. The gas companies are intentionally and aggressively hiding information from the public. If fracking is so safe, they should stop hiding behind “trade secrets” and be honest.


    2. Every time someone says something “creates jobs” it’s a bunch of BS. In the case of fracking, it’s mostly people from a handful of states moving around the country doing the work.

    @Mr. King

    And it was that way WAY before Fracking! DECADES before! You just show your ignorance with your comments that you don’t know the facts!

    What, you mean you don’t want to be able to light your tap water on fire to keep warm in the winter?
    …what do you mean, “what am I supposed to drink”? If you can’t afford pallets of Perrier, then all your problems are your own doing!

    Ok what is better, socialism, never worked, not in Russia or China. European Union the only ones not in debt live within their means.

    Fracking has been around for 1/2 a century and only now we are hearing about the trouble. That is a fact.

    When I was in high school we took a field trip to Surry, VA where the nuclear power plant was being built.
    “Electricity so cheap you won’t have to meter it,” they said.
    Then the anti-nuke zealots killed program after program, giving us the climate change and pollution mess we have today.

    When I was in elementary school we took a field trip to Surrey, VA, as well. We were getting the “electricity so cheap…” lecture, when some of us latched onto the fact that the discharge water was 4 degrees C warmer than the incoming water. Didn’t take us little kids long to figure out that this translates to about 7 degrees F, which would change the spawning habits of fish, and would affect other wildlife. If it wasn’t so serious, it would have been funny to watch this guy squirm. His only defense was, “It’s only 4 degrees Centigrade.”

    Oh, well, as long as people can make money.

    And we had an earthquake last year in Mineral, VA, which caused the North Anna plant to close for more than three months, despite being about a hundred miles away. I feel so very safe.

    The military base by my city uses coal and the the discharge has the Chena river, which used to be used for the winter carnival and ice skating, with open channels all year.
    .
    Steaming water in January when it used to have ice thick enough to drive on. Every year for the last twenty-five, open water.
    .
    I grew up without open water ever until the 70’s, now the river NEVER freezes.
    .
    All power plants must be cooled and nuclear plants are no exception other than being more efficient.

    Coal fired plants are cooled by bay water, too. Makes wintering grounds for manatees in FL.
