    Yes

    This is my favorite part: "New Study Predicts Frack Fluids Can Migrate to Aquifers Within Years". This title has, "we're just guessin'", written all over it. This is nothing but fear mongering.
    Ah yes.. Hollow argument. Tell me. Did you read the study?


    The agents and additives that are used in frac'ing are all EPA approved. How can they be that harmful? Most are naturally occuring elements, such as calcium and biodegradable stuff like soda carbonate. Soda carbonate is put into swimming pools.
    Is this your first time in US politics? Are you telling me the EPA has not been lobbied?

    You should stop reading the propaganda and start learning the facts.
    Ahhh yes scholarly articles and scientific studies are "propaganda".. Excuse me maybe to get the facts i should visit the own companies website to get caught up on those "facts"...

    Yes of course when you have no response play off the study because it does not fit your narrow agenda..

    Vermont demonstrates the political culture in America. Nothing can be accomplished because of political division.

    There won't be Green Energy in America because Green Energy has been politicized. So the only course of action is to buy energy from foreign dictators. That will transfer wealth out of America. But that's our default position. Long term result will be deteriorating living standards in America. Too bad.

    The thing is Im not an "environmentalist" i just have enough common since to see when practices are harmful especially to human life...

    as a college kid I ran into nutcase Lyndon LaRouche. He was perhaps the most vicious hater of the environmental whacks of any person I had met. I did some research-hard core laborites like him saw rich preppy/yuppy environmentalists as impeding jobs for the working class. Sort of like the rich kennedys whining about alternative energy (windmills) screwing up their ocean view at Hyannisport

    I know you didn't bother to read the links - because if you had taken a couple of minutes, you would have found that the fracking company in the UK confirmed that it was its work which had caused the quakes.

    Get that - the company doing the fracking said YES, it was our work that caused the quakes.

    Reflexive refusal of real data is not the way to refute your opponents.

    I don't have to. I have three generations of drilling experience to tell me that those studies are bull****.

    You mean, Obama's EPA has been tainted by the evil oilmen?

    There were, "scholars", in the 13th Century that assured everyone that the Earth was flat, too.
