The science and safety of fracking has been proven . It's amazing that you live in Bizarro world. You believe the lie of man made global warming and don't believe the facts about fracking.

I don't need to prove climate change is happening, thousands of scientists have already done that. If your too blind, or ignorant, or brainwashed by the talking heads, or whatever else to realize that, then whatever I say would have zero impact on your askew point of view.

I wish you were right, but your not.
You can't back up any of your outrageous claims. Go away little girl.

Partially true, but the turning point for me was a class at Penn state ( I know, a rat bastard liberal institution of higher learning).

Have a great day wallowing in your ignorance.

And you would replace fossil fuels with what? Wind power that only works when its windy? Solar power which only generates during sunlight and can't be stored because the liquid salt systems used to store the heat require so much heat not to harden are too expensive to build, run and maintain? Hydrogen which is extremely costly to produce? What do you suppose we use young lady? You have no answers only ignorant rants and complaints.

Who said I'm an expert? I never claimed to be one. What a silly ASSumption.
Your grandchildren, if you were lucky enough to coerce someone into procreation, are going to piss on your grave and recall their crackpot granddad cherio.

Your grandbaby has brains in his fingers? Man, that doesn't sound good. You should have him looked at, brains are supposed to be in your head. You'd think his mother would have caught that.

"We pay less for water than we pay for cell phone service or cable television," he said.

"All of our incentives are wrong."

The problem isn't just getting water to obviously needy areas like the desert city of Las Vegas, Glennon said.

Areas with high rainfall and seemingly abundant freshwater sources also are increasingly exceeding capacity.

Remaining on Crawford Renewable Energy's to-do list, aside from the final permits, is negotiating agreements with the Economic Progress Alliance for water, sewer and other industrial-park services.

"We own the water, roads and sewer system. We'll need to reach technical agreements with CRE for the services that they'll be using," Turner said.

The 1,300-acre industrial park has more than enough water and sewage capacity for the mega-plant, Turner said.

The plant would use an estimated 1 million gallons of water daily.

A million gallons of water --
How much is it?

If you start browsing through our water-use topics you'll see that water-use data are usually expressed in million of gallons of water used per day (Mgal/d).

You'll understand the data better if you can visualize how much a million gallons is.

A good-sized bath holds 50 gallons, so a million gallons would be 20,000 baths.

But, it might be easier to take a look at the pool and cube below:

If you were a swimming-pool builder and a customer asked you to build a pool that would hold a million-gallons, then they had better have a big yard!

You would need to build a pool about 267 feet long (almost as long as a football field), 50 feet wide, and 10 feet deep.

Some conversions:

1 Mgal/d = 1.547 cubic feet per second
1 Mgal/d = 694.4 gallons per minute
1 Mgal/d = 1.121 thousand acre-feet per year
1 million gallons = 3.07 acre feet

Yoo Hoo I apologize. I just perused through the American Thinker. Actually it is an excellent source of truth. Based on the reality of world events and direction, many of it's contributors are spot on. Boy I guess I was the jackass.
