Get out of the way you serfs. The Empire has decided that your paltry lives are not as valuable as the energy that they can collect and sell to those countries that have growing economies. The Experiment in Democracy is over. We gave our nation back to the same families that controlled us before 1776. Our Sovereignty was signed away to the WTO and when we sign the TPP there will be no controlling who gathers "our" natural resources nor will we have any say in the way it is done.

not worth it. better to live "like cavemen" than to pollute our groundwater sources relatively permanently.

Again, the American energy policy NEEDS to advance from "lets dig shit out of the ground and light it on fire"

I got a letter from Gov Dickhead personally telling me how great fracking is and that it has been used for decades and is great in every way. Don't worry citizen Oklahoma's strong regulatory apparatus means everything will be ok. No mention of toxic chemicals injected into the ground. No mention of earthquakes. Oklahoma is fuc***ked.

Fracking is a Ponzi scheme. A regular nat-gas well will produce for over a decade. A "fracked" well loses 49% capacity annually (and this from the BEST wells, the 1st ones drilled, the "low hanging fruit"). The Carbon Barons are drilling 7,700 NEW wells each year (cost:$146 billion) just to MAINTAIN production levels. The head of Exxon-Mobile told the CFA that the industry was "losing it's shirt". Essentially, fracking is just one more example (many more to come in the days ahead) of the Death Throes of an obsolete industry.

Our need for more energy is exceeded only by the thirst for riches. There is enough evidence to indicate that its our appetites that we should address. Each of us is responsible for what we consume, we live in a society that brings very little attention to the environmental impact and "distance till empty" rate because it drives an economic model that requires growth. In this case, growth with the current model spells doom for the human species.

We must change our perceptions around energy and that includes what we eat. The world is on a petrol diet and if we continue to put our blind appetites in front of common sense, we can say good by to our grandchildren's future.
It is high time that each and every one of us takes responsibility for our impact on our planets carrying capacity.

Despite claims to the contrary there are many instances of hydraulic fracturing polluting ground water sources. Which is why they are drilling and fracking just as many wells as they can before the general public figures out just how destructive and polluting fracking really is.

HYDROFRACKING

The problem is no one trusts private corporations to do the
right things when it comes to protecting the environment or human life or our
right to know so we can protect ourselves.
Nor do we trust our elected officials since they can be bought and
controlled through campaign contributions and lobbying. It has become very hard to judge and
understand the rules and regulations needed to control this process since
knowledge of the process is secret. We
do not know: how to nondestructively test and monitor the wells, what to do
with the waste water and if it can be recycled without the flowback water
becoming more toxic with each reuse, how to capture the released methane, what
to do with the released radon gas, what chemicals are involved and if they are
being stored in a safe and secure manner. Recently, we have learned that the process can
cause low intensity earthquakes this has been documented as occurring in
England, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Ohio, Texas and perhaps other areas. The U. S. Geological Survey has reported a
sudden rise in the rate of 3.0 magnitude and greater earthquakes in areas where
hydraulic fracturing of shale layers and deep hydro-waste storage wells
occur. EPA has issued a finding that the
chemicals used in the hydrofracking process; as well as, methane can leach or
leak or otherwise find a way into water supplies, wells, aquifers and
streams. The United States Center for Disease Control
and Prevention and doctors across the nation have called for a moratorium on
fracking pending further research into the effects of injecting hydrocarbons
such as: petroleum distillates, naphthalene, formaldehyde, benzyl choride, volatile
organic compounds and glycol ethers deep into the earth. Of the
353 chemicals presumed ingredients, 60% can harm the brain and nervous system,
40% are endocrine disrupters and 30% are both suspected carcinogens and
developmental toxicants. Those who have
studies the fracking issue, seen and measured its effects have identified seven
major impacts: the industrialization of rural areas; clearing and fragmenting
woodland, wetlands and grasslands; introduction of urban air quality and
pollution; evacuation of communities due to accidents and lack of safety; the
disappearance of fresh water due to the huge volumes needed; the long term
bio-accumulative effects of RADIUM-226 (1/2 life 1,600y) which neither the
state, nation nor world is equipped to handle and in the end the gas will run
out but the environmental and ecological damage will remain. New York State and other states should issue
no further permits until these questions can be answered and the Hudson Valley,
Delaware River and the Finger Lake Region should always be out of bounds as well
as other unique regions of our nation.
Finally, the governor should issue an executive order, and the
legislature pass a law allowing each level of government (village, town, city
or county) the right and legal authority to ban hydrofracking within their jurisdiction.

I predict that, because of fracking and especially because of methane hydrates, perhaps among other factors, gas will undergo a terrific boom. Methane being a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2, this will only accelerate global assmaddening. PROBLEM?

This quest for almighty dollar at the expense of everything else has to be stopped..In Ohio we never had earthquakes now we do..If we dont take care of mother earth she cant take care of us. Greed by the few at our expense has to stop ..

I love the fact that they keep referring to this as clean energy and fuel while it is so far from it. We visited a friend of my dad in Northern Arkansas (150 miles away from Belle Vista) where fracking was taking place because a land owner sold rights to a energy company. First, there is no more drinking tap water straight as professional filtration is a must. Second, plants will die if you water them with the tap/well water. Absolutely no fishing from any local water areas. In some cases people have reported that you can light the water on fire. There are federal laws on the books to prevent the companies from being sued for fracking.

ost of those are caused by removing ground water - the ground water that remains gets contaminated and flammable when the frackers use an excessively OVER POWERED explosion (impacting an area much much larger than they claim) in deep rock formations and propagate an expanding pressure wave (well beyond the rock formations containing oil or natural gas and way farther away than the collection well heads cover) that fractures the BEDROCK on which sits the ground water allowing the toxic chemicals and gas to rise EVERY WHERE the fracturing wave spread to - this process is shattering bedrock and causing damage to the structure of previously stable Continental plate areas - this process should be stopped before they create county sized settling areas (sink holes that BIG) of unwanted and unnatural subsidence of surface areas as these now fragmented rock chunks shift under pressure and compact and cause geologically stable areas to become unstable as in earth quakes in areas that are not built (our infrastructure from houses to bridges and schools etc.etc.etc.) for them.
Water is sinking down where they frack and will be lost to us and the chemicals are contaminating the remaining undamaged aquifers beyond the fracking areas that we need for DRINKING and AGRICULTURE ... fracking is BAD PERIOD BAD for us.

Dear citizens of the internet,

We are Anonymous.

The United States Government is again attempting to control and censor the internet. The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act has just recently passed the house.

This bill would allow major internet entities such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google to voluntarily share your personal information with the U.S. Government. This will not only affect users in the United States, but also anyone with an account with these companies.

This upcoming Monday, April the 22nd, we invite you to join Anonymous in an internet blackout. We encourage all web developers and website owners to go dark on this date. Display a message as to why you are going dark, and encourage others to do the same.

We hope, just like the successful protest over the Stop Online Piracy Act, we can encourage the senate to stop this bill.

Spread the message, and inform the world.

Unfacts above quoted by an idiot.
Fracked wells don't decrease any faster than ordinary ones.
Exxon is losing it's shirt on natural gas only because
gas has fallen so much in price. That's nothing to do
with how productive the wells have been.

I see the same two are using other posters usernames to carry on a pseudo-conversation with themselves. Fakes, liars and misrepresentations.
