(NPR)   All you conspiracy nuts raving about a huge night time light source in North Dakota that wasn't there six years ago can just relax. It's only oil frackers burning off massive amounts of natural gas   ( npr.org) divider line

illannoyin: So, you're saying I should buy stock in the natural gas companies now?

Bear with me now. Some kind of transport tube, maybe a series of tubes like the internet. We build those tubes and pipe the natural gas through those tubes from places like Texas to places like North Dakota.

We could call it a pipeline like my local gas company does when they run natural gas across town.

Maybe we could call this larger, longer distance version a pipeline. 'Series of natural gas tubes' doesn't have the same ring to it.

Dancin_In_Anson: GAT_00: But the holy bottom line is better, and that costs a little more, so fark the future.

Jesus farking God boy. Do you realize that if exports were allowed, the price would go up enough to afford to build these "relatively safe' pipelines and use the product in industry and power generation thereby preserving the 'future' via the desired green path?!

GAT_00's a faux know-it-all jerkoff. Don't bother with facts or logic

Somehow, I knew this was somehow Obama's fault, and not greed and short-sightedness on the part of business. Glad to have this thread to show me exactly how.

GAT_00: Solon Isonomia: That's seriously wasteful, disgustingly wasteful

Just standard business practice.  Why bother think for tomorrow when profit today is all that matters?

Blasphemy. The Free Market solves all problems and don't you forget it!

Yeah, subby, that's what they WANT you to believe.

I won't be drinking your Kool Aid today, sir. Good day.
