Re: And they tell use fracking is safe?
Interesting site. I have noticed that there is not one of those who are supporting fracking bans are advocating the surrender of the "modern lifestyle" . They want the right and the convenience to jet here, to drive there, to have all the electric for air condition and other conveniences yet they want to prevent the recovery of the energy that makes that possible.
There is an environmental cost to every thing that is done today even farming. The production of food (farming) could not be done with the oil/gas industry. Without coal, gas, and oil our way of life could not exist. Even nuclear has its problems and the environmentalist have pushed for its banning in the past. But now many are pushing for more nuclear generators to replace coal and later gas generators.
The question is how much environmental damage is exceptable and how much that damage can be mitigated, The answer to both of these questions depends on what lifestyle one is willing to have.
