Personally, I think the hate for fraking is unwarranted. With proper safeguards to protect the water supply and the environment it can make us 100% energy self sufficient. But what's wrong with banning it within the city limits? This seems to be a reasonable limitation that should be perfectly legal (unless someone tried to pull a fast one by declaring the city limits to cover the entire country).

RminusQ: uber humper: The media usually ignore the anti-scientific left. And they are just as farking crazy as the anti-scientific right. The progressive democrats are cut from the same, crazy, illogical stone as the bible-thumping right.

Could you name some anti-scientific leftists in Congress on the House Committee on Space, Science, and Technology alongside Paul Broun ("evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell"), Dana Rohrabacher ("could be dinosaur flatulence"), and Todd Akin (I shouldn't need to quote his stupidity)?

Maybe there's a reason anti-science conservative nutjobs get media attention: THEY'RE IN THE FARKING CONGRESS, MAKING OUR LAWS ABOUT SCIENCE.

And Obama believes that there is a link between autism and vaccines.

There are people with crazy ideas, everywhere.

Bontesla: SomeGeologist: SquiggsIN: When your water is flammable due to water table contamination you may reconsider your pro-fracking position you fracking moron.

Fracking does not work that way...

Actually it does in thousands of documented cases.

My understanding is that 99% of these "documented cases" were either from the very early days of fracking when they were still learning how to do it, or they involved issues that had no link to the fracking going on in the area, the latter being far more common.

Move out of the country? Pretty sure they can do it just about anywhere.

move out of the region.

Into another region where they're fracking. Good plan there, Hendrix.

They should only frack beyond the environment.

This should be an actual word.

Yeah, a cross between "revoke" and "remove," which is apparently what happened to the smartness in my head.
