Everybody and their dog has forwarded me this article the past few days about the new technology. Of course, no mention is made about how they plan to protect our drinking water, not to mention the earthquakes.
But, right off the bat, they tell a big, fat lie:
Drilling for more natural gas could make Exxon a lot of money as Americans demand cleaner fuel because natural gas doesn’t emit as much pollution or greenhouse gases as oil and coal when burned.
Maybe it doesn’t emit as much when burned but there’s a whole lot of pollution going on before it ever gets burned. Stick around and I’ll show you.
Exxon forecasts that natural gas demand will rise 50 percent by 2030 and outstrip demand for coal.
This will be a disaster for our planet.

Right on, If you include all the pollution during drilling, "sweetening" and accidental releases, natural gas is just as bad, if not worse, than other fossil fuels! This XOM PR BS does not show how the fracking fluids are prevented from damaging our drinking water aquifers.
