    In any case, fracking raises some environmental concerns that bear research, and in the meantime we should proceed cautiously. Fracking obviously has incredible energy benefits for this country, but we need to know the downside.

    Why is it that conservatives just don't want real facts?

    The problem is most people assume documentary's are fact based so when they are not it becomes propaganda and that is exactly what all these left wing documentary's are.

    Agreed.

    Most folks are incapable of disseminating facts from any communication.

    I never get upset about slanted news or communication, as my BS filter is always on high.

    The operative word being "real". Of course we're intetested in real facts. It's the fabricated BS that we reject.

    So, you got any real facts? "Facts" that don't defy physics, that is.

    The water wells that have methane in them had methane in them before the fracing started.

    Uh, yeah, the real facts are that the companies are pumping chemicals, often unidentified proprietary chemicals, into aquifers or near aquifers. So research is in order so that we can regulate, monitor and improve on any practices that might threaten water supplies.

    Only a conservative would find that problematical. It's a consequence of knownothingism.

    That's why they often drill near them. Wells are often naturally polluted by rising methane bubbles. Methane can also be cleared from your water by installing a filter onto it when you draw it up. Perhaps the fracking companies can provide one?

    Methane really isn't the biggest issue, but I see you want to divert attention from what is.

    There are no serious issues surrounding fracking. The farmers who own the land are begging for the wells to be built so they can keep their farms.

    All of the information in Gasland is a lie
