EXCERPT

They urged people to push the government to impose a ban on hydraulic fracturing or "fracking", the most commonly used method for shale gas exploration that opponents say might contaminate drinking water.
The protestors marched on the government buildings carrying banners saying "No to shale gas, Yes to nature", and "Chevron go home" to protest the US company's plans to extract shale gas in the European Union's poorest member.
Bulgaria's government granted Chevron last June a five-year testing permit to explore a potentially huge field near Novi Pazar in northeastern Bulgaria.
The country's reserves are estimated at between 300 billion and one trillion cubic metres of shale gas, Energy Minister Traicho Traikov had said, citing data by companies.

MY TAKE

BIG OIL and GAS knows the scoop yet at this time they prefer to hide behind lies. I think they do that all the time. LIE THAT IS!

WHY LIE? Some have bet big on getting drilling rights but on that note there were restraints made in the deal that if fracturing was challenged and lost with in the Federal Government then all bets were off and that $45 billion dollar deal would fall through the cracks.

Sounds a little bit like the tricks from Wall Street?

Another protest last Saturday, but smaller. The excitement and fervor of the movement is fading.
