Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Correct, under permit by state agencies. In that case, the correct term is discharging, not dumping. Just like when you take a dump at home or at work.
Fracking water contains high concentrations of chlorides and total dissolved solids, which are not toxic except for the high concentrations. Discharging in small quantities to municipal systems lowers the concentrations and minimizes environmental effects. This is a short-term approach until treatment facilities, essentially a form of desalination plant, are constructed.
And they still haven't figured out what to do yet.

What I was attempting to point out is all energy sources has their own impacts on the environment.
The myth of clean energy.
For example the number of wind turbines-using the most optimized of these and assuming the blades are what is needed in the different environments- it would take all of North Dakota and South Dakota covered by these to supply the needs of the US according to some estimates.
The actual number and land volume it would take is based on estimates. I could not find a definite number.
Of course, this is not the environmental impact that most Americans would want.
South and North Dakota are two of the smallest land mass states in the U.S. so if it only takes that little land per population density to produce all electricity needs of the nation then that's a bargain!:-D

Snowden should have followed the whistle blower laws.
However, if he had stopped with stating the NSA lied to congress when they stated they were not collecting data on all Americas he may have been okay.
When Snowden became all Wikileaks and started informing foreign governments, he caused his own woes.
Hong Kong just allowed Snowden leave the country-whatever your trading partners implied.

" Gunmen stormed a camp on Pakistan’s second-largest mountain Sunday, killing nine foreign climbers, including a U.S. citizen, in a brazen assault that could deal a blow to the country’s efforts to jumpstart its tourism industry.

Pakistan’s Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, calling it retribution for a suspected U.S. drone strike last month that killed Wali ur-Rehman, the second-highest-ranking leader of the terrorist group.

“Through this killing we gave a message to international community to ask U.S. to stop drone strikes,” said Ehsanullah Ehsan, a Taliban spokesman.

The attack in northern Pakistan at Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth-tallest mountain, occurred around 1 a.m. as the climbers and their guides were at a camp at about 4,000 feet above sea level. According to local and regional officials, about a dozen gunmen tied up the climbers’ Pakistani guides before shooting the climbers as they slept in tents."

Incorrect. There are available technical solutions. The problems are of application, location, scale, and economics.

1. Your geography sucks.

2. The demand for power in ND and SD is very small.

Cover the Florida beaches with wind turbines if you Bocajews want wind power.

Sorry. The comment was intended for general consumption, not aimed at you.

However, Galt is amused and somewhat disturbed by folks from places like New York and Florida who think it's OK to ruin the Dakotas with wind turbines and the Mohave with solar panels so that they can live in sealed high-rise condos with air conditioning.

Even if the power transmission was feasible, which it isn't.

And then there is the issue of transmission lines.

One problem with wind generated eletricity is that you can't push it very far. Wind electricty generated in the Dakotas would never reach californis. You could, however, transport carbon base fueks ftom the Dakotas to California.

lol! No son. It's actually a compliment that the likes of you obviously know when it's safer to keep your mouth shut instead.

At least it proves you're not completely brainless, just scared.
