    Because if you do, I guess you're gonna have to go vegan (or, at least eat something other than beef), because apparently, it's not only lighting people's water on fire, it's now creeping into the food source.

    Livestock falling ill in fracking regions - Open Channel

    Yep..............keep getting rid of the regs...........seems to help business, but not the people.

    They blamed fracking for the earth quake we had awhile back. Definitely something that needs more research.

    Actually, if you check out the earthquakes that are 3.0 or less, you'll find that most of them are nowhere around fault lines.

    However................................


    They ARE around fracking wells.

    I guess we better shut down all the oil refineries in the country since a cow might graze near one and consume a few drops of oil. While were at it we can shut down all the mines, all the oil rigs, all the gas rigs and all the chemical plants - the later would include all fertilizer plants and all pesticide plants.

    Yeah, that will do wonders for our food production. It may drop to 10% of current production, but at least we won't experience a 0.00000001% chance of eating a cow that grazed near one of these things.

    Were there earthquakes at 3.0 or less not on fault lines before fracking was ever even thought of? If they have, then there are a great many possible reasons for the earthquakes that you must first consider before you immediately rush to your particular political gripe.

    There are thousands upon thousands of 3.0 earthquakes every year. Furthermore, the damage from such an earthquake is exactly zero.

    Once again, the liberal turds are making much adoo about nothing.

    They do like to blame everything on their political pets, don't they.

    The fucking moron who made a thread praising His Lord and Savior Obama for finding oil and gas in the USA now makes a thread against the very technique responsible for the massive supplies found.

    That's how fucking dumb you have to be in order to be a Liberal today

    They are no different that any other group of Progressives that took over a country: Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc; they need their scapegoats because they never ever get anything wrong
