Sound advice on fracking from an unexpected source: Obama s Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, castigated those towns, counties and even one particular state for banning hydraulic fracturing, based on politics and fear, not science and certainly not economics.
A town in Texas voted to ban fracking shale-fracturing for entrapped gas and other fossil fuels and the fractavists are having a field day. Fortunately for our energy needs and economy, this symbolic win is Pyrrhic.
Fracking news, pro (water contamination not frack-related) and con (junk survey alleging health effects among nearby residents)
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.
