    So many uneducated people when it comes to the process of fracking.

    I rather have Politicians and Businessmen working together then being the same same guy.

    Considering that fifty percent (50%) of members of Congress become lobbyists after retirement (or election loss), they ARE the “same guy.”
    In the 1970s, only 3% became lobbyists.

    The bottom line is it that fracking brings good things: cheaper energy, jobs, and cleaner air. Even President Obama says that “the natural gas boom has led to cleaner power.”
    Still, the usual alarmists have already stopped fracking in New York State, Maryland, and Vermont. This won’t help the environment. Or poor people.
    Fracking does pose risks, but they can be safely managed.

    “Do you ever try to read the $#!+ that you write?”

    Stevenson can’t help it. He received a conservative endorsed education, in which critical thinking skills were left out because they might cause him to question his fixed beliefs.

    That doesn’t include all of the people shuffling between working for regulatory agencies & the companies they are supposed to regulate.

    Public officials take lucrative jobs in industry

    Liberals’ “problem” is we tend to think about what costs are involved beyond the immediate ones. The oil & gas isn’t going anywhere, yet there seems to be an attitude that if we don’t approve of questionable processes, it’s going to evaporate.

    If you’re wrong, how do you make it right for future generations?

    Thank you for being civil , even though we may not agree. This type of banter is beneficial to all, some others could learn from Uncle Joe. Insinuating that I don’t care about the planet or my children and grandchildren. N you’uns wunder why us redneks like shootin liberals?

    Members of Congress should be prohibited for not less than 10 years after leaving office from lobbying. It’s interesting by comparison that federal employees working in land management agencies aren’t allowed to hold real estate licenses, and used to be banned from lobbying after leaving.

    “You lucky clueless bastards, wallowing in your own ignorance while costing the world time and money.”

    Yeah, the height of civility. There used to be lots & lots of conservatives who respected others who they felt erred on the side of caution in regard to the environment. A few still do, but most seem to think it’s better to ridicule anyone who disagrees.

    Ahab & I said basically the same thing & I hope you noticed that neither of us made a blanket reference to conservatives.

    “We may have the technology, but that does NOT mean the oil/gas companies are willing to pay to safely mitigate those risks.”

    As profit seeking businesses, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect they want to frack as cheaply as possible. Given the revolving door between those companies & their regulators, I view claims about what truly adequate safety costs would be with extreme skepticism.

    The oil & gas will be there. Eventually, the technology & safety will be much better. Trying to get gas back to $3 a gallon is a foolish (and fallacious) reason for ignoring real dangers.

    @Uncle Joe

    Sorry Uncle Joe , did not mean to offend you. Your comments were polite and poignant. While I do see the danger and costs of fracking I also see the needed benefits of an expanded natural gas policy in this country, I try to weigh the information and form my opinions carefully. Apparently I’m having a grumpy day – uncool. As for Ahab , well I’ll apologize there when I feel it is deserved.
