ACSH s Dr. Gil Ross spoke at length last night on an upstate New York radio program, dissecting the December decision by Gov. Cuomo to ban fracking in the state. Ross s opinions were acerbic, to say the least.
high volume hydraulic fracturing
Among the many nonsensical agenda-driven attacks on fracking, the allegation that the process produces dangerous radiation is among the more ludicrous. Now the PA environmental agency agrees.
A surprising new front in the war against fracking: Texas, the heart of the fossil fuel industry. Although the anti-frackers (?fractavists) are as scientifically clueless as their New York State fellow-activists, the upcoming vote may be close.
New York s highest court will hear arguments re: townships abilities to ban shale-gas exploration (fracking) via zoning ordinances. Fracking is safe and landowners rights to their own property are at stake. We hope the Court strikes down such bans. The State s moratorium is bad enough.
Concern voiced over the so-called paucity of federal inspections of gas and oil exploration sites. In fact, there are as yet no reports of actual harms, contaminations, or anything to be actually fearful of. Still, anti-frackers will go wild over nothing, as usual.
