The piece that you cite is generally supportive of fracking, which is safe if performed properly.
Treatment of the frac water is a significant technical issue, but with available solutions.
Fracking will turn out to be the most devastating environmental disasters to visit humanity.

Your ignorance concerning this issue is as dumb as your ignorance concerning coal.

Y'see, it's all geology, a subject you know nothing about. A field where I earn my living. The very idea that you can break the rocks deep in the earth's crust and have no fissures or cracks extending into aquifers or rivers is pure stupidity that only the truly ignorant can believe.

Likely you've never been to a fracking site. You have no idea what occurs there. It's not pretty, it's not clean, it's not safe.

When the potable water supplies are contaminated, there will be no turning back, as GE will get to sell every household in America filtration systems.

More corporate control of citizens.

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.

Natural gas is too valuable as a resource, regardless of current price, to be burned as fuel for power over the long-term.
Natural gas is the obvious bridge fuel for a transition to increased use of nuclear energy.
Converting existing fossil plants to NG (compared to constructing new NG plants) is often based on siting issues rather than economics.
Is natural gas going to be the next significant scarce-resource bubble to burst on world markets? Big Oil and Fracking Companies have mislead the public for years on the potentially 'unlimited natural gas reserves buried in their backyards. It just isn't the truth.

"The recent press about the potential of shale gas would have you believe that America is now sitting on a 100-year supply of natural gas. It's a "game-changer." A "golden age of gas" awaits, one in which the United States will be energy independent, even exporting gas to the rest of the world, upending our current energy-importing situation.

The data, however, tell a very different story. Between the demonstrable gas reserves, and the potential resources blared in the headlines, lies an enormous gulf of uncertainty."

We have learned Russia's response to the US request to extradite Snowden. Russian officials state that the lack of an adequate passport does not mean Snowden cannot board a plane headed to South America.

Again watch the brainless name calling.
Are you suggesting the Dems do not want the now Anonymous-turned Snowden captured?
Obama wants him extradited-remember.
However, as the most important issue to Americans -nope.
name calling?

so insinuating that right wing folks who live in a bubble of the FOX worldview are clueless is name calling??

Hey stupid, he didn't use the law. FDUH

What's with your lame, whining excuses??

He committed treason against the USA, then fled to China.

For you to defend this traitor only proves that you are just like him.

You hate America, you're a traitor. You have defended Putin over your own President, and defended a traitor who has arrest warrants out for him.

It won't be forgotten or ignored going forward.

Failed to respond to the second part of your statement.

Yes, it is true that some wells have methane and hydrogen sulfide in them unrelated to drilling activity.

However, if these substances do not normally appear in the ground water and appear only after fracking; I still think it should be up to the drilling company to pay for the clean-up.

So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have toĖ if youíre going to do this ó find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally donít have access to this kind of weapon."
