NewportBarGuy: Too many people and groups want energy independence. Fracking will continue and we'll just see what that leads to 10-20 years from now.Personally, I'm not a fan. But, I highly doubt the process will be stopped successfully with the number of jobs and the royalties/taxes and local spending they promise communities and states.
Mrbogey: Carth: Mrbogey: firefly212: They have burning water on the western slope of Colorado too... there's benzene in the water now... there didn't used to be... but the frackers say it's totally unrelated to all the benzene they pumped into the ground.Ooo let me try. The state of North Pennsylvania was completely destroyed in 1996 by fracking. The industry then paid off everyone to shut up about it.I love this "Make up facts" game you started.Yes it is perfectly safe. Colorado has had no problems with fracking. Do you work for the oil/gas industry? You sure seem to hate people talking about the problems it has.Right, you dishonestly state the case and think you're right. There was a spill into a river that was completely separate from fracking. That's like saying tsunami's cause radioactive fallout in Japan or flights out of Boston are responsible for the WTC building collapsing.I hate it when morons spout off with passionate abandon things that are completely wrong. Ideally, if you stopped saying things that were wrong I wouldn't have a reason to post about fracking.
Mrbogey: NeedlesslyCanadian: http://hotair.com/about/Oh yeah. Definitely sounds like a reputable group of people who most assuredly have their heads firmly in reality.Is it your belief that Hot Air did the scientific study? Perhaps you ought to read a bit more.
Dancin_In_Anson: Target Builder: unless the oil industry is nationalized, which will never happen.Thank Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan.Blues_X: Also, helps cause earthquakes.Lockjaw and night vision too!
Marcus Aurelius: If fracking is so harmless, then why are they not required to disclose what they're pumping down there?
Marcus Aurelius: And why are they exempt from the Clean Water act?
