    Pipelines do it too, especially gas ones, just check how they mess with Texas!

    Yeah. Health and safety is for kids. Balanced diets as well. Let’s mount the artillery on our camouflage jeep, weave in and out amongst the natural gas flares and hunt down the weak of heart and limb. Let’s be Randian! Let’s ENJOY America.

    Silly cartoon: Fracking is about gas, not oil.


    And since we have more than enough bean-eating dinosaurs producing gas faster than we could ever possibly frack it, we have an unlimited supply so it’s silly not to use as much of it as possible.


    And if a little methane escapes into the atmosphere, that can’t possibly have any impact: It was clear in the 16th century ‘the passage thereto by sea on the north side of Labrador had been mentioned and proved by the most expert and best learned amongst modern geographers’, so the Arctic has been ice-free since then, and the sudden discovery of ‘open water’ allowing passage through the Arctic is nothing new.

    fracking is used to make it possible for shale oil extraction to produce oil and natural gas in places where conventional technologies are ineffective.

    Who knew that companies who use fracking methods would be partners in Mr. Obama’s War on Coal? They must be stopped!

    (The above is meant to be sarcasm. Please do not give me a hard time for actually believing any of the above.)

    Absolutely correct. We Libtards (please capitalize: we’re proud of our nickname) want nothing less than to destroy this country, one community (and one block, if necessary) at a time. There are many methods at our disposal, but the most important is to ignore our natural resources and buy them from people who hate us. The more they hate us, the better. And if they use the money to attack us, it fits perfectly into our Master Plan. Try to stop us, punk.

    (Again, sarcasm. I get tired of the hyperbole, and the whole concept that "my side wants what’s right, and the other side is our mortal enemy. Sometimes, I feel it’s easier to join them than to set them straight.)

    Since the GOP has blocked all action on climate change, every little thing we can do to make oil and gas cost more is a righteous act for the planet. Wind and solar are already cheaper than coal. Let’s make them cheaper than gas and oil. And rooting for exploding oil cars makes conservatism look dangerous and unpleasant, so please keep doing it, suckers.

    If Man made climate change was real and the actions Obama wants to happen would have any impact on the climate, then maybe we could talk. But since it is nothing but an Obama power and ego grab, they have every right to block his economy collapsing legislation and EPA power grabs.

    How about “Gee, how safer it would have been to send this via pipeline”.

    ^ Someone would have to actually do an unbiased study of barrels transported by rail and truck versus barrels transported by pipeline. The study would have to include cost of transport, cost of spills (direct and indirect) and cleanup, and any number of things that could be thought up to make the study comprehensive.

    “Safety” regulations on pipelines, and all oil and gas operations, have since Reagan era changes in regs, and especially under “W”, been rewritten by the industry, and STILL ignored, by the likes of Halliburton (thank you Gulf oil spill!), and El Paso Natural Gas, a Halliburton affiliate controlled by a guy named, gee, Dick Cheney.


    FERC btw issued a pumped storage permit for a guy who proposed moving water from a lake to the top of a mountain, and letting it run back down to generate electricity at “higher” rates. The only minor problem they overlooked? He proposed pumping THREE TIMES THE ENTIRE VOLUME OF THE LAKE, EVERY MORNING!! They will issue ANYONE a license, for ANYTHING; that is the Reagan/Bush/Bush legacy.


    Transportation “safety” in all forms, is a joke, and if regs were corrected, and followed, the operations COULD be safe, but profits might drop by 1-2 %, so that won’t happen!

    Business doesn’t save us from danger unless they are forced too. Costs too much in their calculations.
