Environmentalists Attack Fracking on Flimsy Grounds

The people know best how to invest authorizing licenses for drilling:  The people speak!

Environmental groups are becoming unduly concerned about accepted methods of collecting one of America’s most plentiful resources.  Thousands of dollars are being expended to influence legislation to prevent “fracking,” or putting pressure on underground structures to cause gas to percolate up to collection devices.  They claim that forcing fluids into the underground strata with various fluids is dangerous.  They fail to acknowledge the money the local communities derives from allowing this drilling. These environmentalists must be defeated so America can once again become self sufficient in energy.



About carlos

I'm a curious person, of reasonable intellect, "on the beach" (retired) and enjoying my interest in anthropology, language, civil rights, and a few other areas. I've been a hippie/student/aerospace tech writer in the '60s, a witness to the Portuguese revolution in the ‘70s, a defense test engineer and witness to the Guatemalan genocide in the '80s, and a network engineer for an ISP in the '90s. Now I’m a student and commentator until my time is up. I've spent time under the spell of the Mesoamerican pyramids and the sweet sound of the Portuguese language. I've lived in Europe, traveled in Brazil, Central America, Iceland, New Zealand, and other places. My preferred mode of travel is with a backpack and I eat (almost) anything local. Somehow, many of the countries I have been to have had civil unrest (for which I was not responsible). I'm open to correspond with anyone who might share my liberal, humanist interests. I live in San Buenaventura, California.
