    More Good News for Fracking

    And no surprise either; the EPA and others have been desperately scrabbling around trying - and consistently failing - to find bad things about fracking for quite a while now.

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    Well, nobody cares if you hate rich people...... the poors like that. And if you hate the middle class, the Dems love you. So all anyone who really matters cares about is why you hate the poors..... :)

    Study says groundwater not affected (makes sense, you don't frack for oil in a water aquifer), but explicitly states that spills are causing issues. Hell what was it a week or two ago they just had a several million gallon leak into the wetlands.

    It's like asbestos. Perfectly fine if used EXACTLY as intended.....

    Kind of like gasoline. Or, hunting knives. Or "assault" rifles. Or nuclear weapons. Or high voltage lines. Or politicians. Or painful memories from childhood.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    2 Articles which settle the debate, and most importantly, Maryland Banned Fracking.
    Now, if we could do something about the Pipeline, we'd be great!

    From the first link: "...the science of fracking is far from settled."

    From the second link: “This politically-motivated decision..."




    What's settled in the debate from either of these links?

    Everything is already great! All the stalled pipeline projects are moving forward now.

    MD lefties cutting the state's economic throat is nothing new. It will be fatal eventually, as people keep moving their money and their businesses out of this failing state. Google "California debt crisis".

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.
