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.
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.
New York State Congressman calls upon Gov. Cuomo to free our economy from the chains of his ill-advised moratorium on shale gas extraction: fracking. Why shouldn t New Yorkers reap the same benefits as all those other states?
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.
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.
Fracking news, pro (water contamination not frack-related) and con (junk survey alleging health effects among nearby residents)
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.
Should they be called fractavists or frackophobes? Ah, what s in a name? The simple fact is, no matter how loudly they wail about fracking-related groundwater contamination, there is no there, there. Even Obama appointees agree.
One group of landowners who wish to exploit the gas/oil reserves beneath their property are being prevented from doing so by "environmentalists"
