    Talking about “clean coal”, right? Because solar and wind energy exist and are used today.

    Basic math is especially mysterious to the libs.

    Looks like it’s time for Barry to give her a billion or two so she can claim “bankrupt”.

    And they are not profitable. Hydraulic fracking exists and is in use today. It is also profitable, and it has led to dramatic reductions in carbon emissions.

    Keep living in that pocket universe all Reich wingers do as realty slips by you.

    So they build drones, build solar film to cover them and they go murdering and spying on people here and everywhere. Just as the Plutocrats want it. And yes they have jobs if they are creating product.

    With a drastic up tick in poisoned ground water. Not an equal trade off.

    “Looks like it’s time for Barry to give her a billion or two so she can claim “bankrupt”.”

    No, the protocol is, first the company has to give Barry a couple mil in campaign contributions. THEN the emperor kicks a couple hundred million government bucks their direction.

    Not really. NYS did a study over a year ago showing that the process is safe. However, Cuomo is on a kick lately to show how “progressive” he is, so he’s sat on it for a year. Meanwhile, Pennsylvania is enjoying a boom thanks to Ed Rendell’s foresight. Now he’s a real progressive.

    The contamination that has been detected is mostly actual gas leaking into the water, and not the chemicals used in the fracking process. It has been mostly dealt with as the technology has improved. It’s something that regulation and contract law can deal with.

    Why don’t they just hire some people to make some products already then?

    The process is safe for the moment. For some but in others their ground water is polluted permanently now.

    @Ionizer

    If we did it the way Germany did we’d have both long term jobs and up the % of wind and solar providing us power. And they could provide us with more power than we use by a factor of 2.

    Fluids used to drill for natural gas likely polluted an aquifer in Wyoming, U.S. regulators said on Thursday, offering the first evidence since 1987 that chemicals used in fracking have contaminated drinking water supplies.

    The draft report of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s investigation into the polluted aquifer could have wide implications on a booming industry that has promoted hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, as way to boost U.S. gas and oil production and slash imports. It contradicts industry claims that fracking fluids have never contaminated drinking water.


    The agency said “the best explanation” for the pollution was that fluids from underground hydraulic fracturing migrated up from fracking operations and contaminated the aquifer. “The presence of these compounds is consistent with migration from areas of gas production,” it said.

    The High Country News has a list of fracking components,as well as the numerous potential illnesses and cancers the chemicals cause. www.hcn.org Just use their search engine under fracking.
