Good article. Too bad this is the very economic success story that Obama and the EPA wish to crush.
It takes science to get oil out of shale.
Republicans believe science is a faith, evolution a lie and climate change a conspiracy.
Can't they just "pray" the oil out of the shale?
Give it a rest. Did you read the link?
People are quite reasonably concerned about the destruction of their watertables.
NIMBY isn't anything more than people defending their property rights.
As to the science and technical issues?
I have no opinion and leave those issues to the experts to battle out
Real simple problem here. We can live without the natural gas. We cannot live without the water. And if they drill and frack, and 10 years down the road, the aquifers are polluted, who pays? Given past experiance, it will be the taxpayer. And the homeowner whose water supply is no longer usable.
We need a solid backup structure, and accountability for this activity.
Sure. So they should stop worrying about hydraulic fracturing, considering the millions of times destruction of the water table has NOT happened.
Isn't that something any normal person would consider the cost/benefit ratio of prior to signing a lease allowing the development of their mineral rights, from which they profit handsomely?
Anyone who looks to entertainers for political or any real advies is pretty stupit.
They are only good for entertainment.
Natural gas just like all fossilf fuesl resutls in a lot of pollution and when adjsuted for health/environmental effects costs more then clena energy
Are the depths of your belief so strong that you don't use these fossil fuels, or are you like so many others who still drive a car, heat your house or the water in it, power your house and your computer, with energy from fossil fuels while complaining about them?
Why does your article claim that property rights are being revoked in New York? And how do you know that the court decisions are flawed? Certainly no evidence was provided in the link you reference.
