    Vermont first state to ban fracking

    CNN) -- Vermont's governor has signed a bill making it the first U.S. state to ban fracking, the controversial practice to extract natural gas from the ground.

    I wish there was a way to have these not in my back yard states pay more for affordable energy that is produced in other states that are willing to do what needs to be done. They are like leeches on America, perfectly willing to get reduced prices on fuel from other states like North Dakota but not willing to do their share for our country. Hey Vermont, Kiss My Ass!

    Vermont will one of the first states to whine about how they don't have any jobs and need the government to bail them out.

    Ummm... that's not logically connected.

    No local petroleum industry does not equate no local jobs.

    Would it be fair to then abstain from providing Vermont with any natural gas or oil obtained from fracking?

    Somehow I have a feeling they won't be the last. It's a relatively new procedure and the long term effects aren't necessarily evident at the moment. On a side note, most of the more industrialized states who are active in drilling and refining already enjoy much lower energy costs than their urban counterparts contrary to what you implied in the second half of your post.

    It's actually not a new procedure. It started in the 40's. The current technique has been used since the 90's. There has been extensive testing. Dallas hasn't sunk into the earth yet. (see Barnett Shale)

    Actually, Vermont has recovered quite well from the recession. Extraordinarily well, in fact. ADPSHT.jpg

    Very interesting, didn't know it was used previously although at a quick glance it seemed to be a more benign mixture used. Thanks for that info.

    Vermont is a state moving in the right direction. Banning this harmful practice that threatens people livelihood is the right thing to do.
