The fracking fables surrounding natural gas development, like Aesopís, seem to hang around a while and every now and then itís important to go back and remind ourselves of the facts, which absent repeating, will get lost in all the storytelling.

There seems to be no end to fables regarding fracking and natural gas development. They persist in the minds of true believers who want to suppose there is a windmill out there to tilt at. Their psyches require enemies to fight and so they simply repeat the same old allegations and keep asserting the same old baseless statements. Evidence is irrelevant as long as you have the ability to keep asserting and speculating. I run into every day on this blog as commenters will assert falsehoods about fracking as if they were so obvious no evidence was required. If you challenge them to produce some facts they simply repeat the accusation.

Letís take a look at five of the biggest fracking fables.
