Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has scheduled an afternoon forum to discuss hydraulic fracturing on public lands for 1 p.m. today.
Someone please tell Salazar that the highlighted benefits range from overblown to full-blown lies.
Economic: See Panel 7: Deborah Rogers presentation at the 2010 People’s Oil and Gas Summit and the recent post by ABCAlliance, Show me the money.
Security: Why are we exporting our security to China? Hint: It’s about profit not security.
Environmental: See Panel 7: Lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas — Dr. Bob Howarth, Cornell

Go to doi.gov/news/doinews/ and look for forum on natural gas for a live stream.
Right now BJ Services is talking about how wonderful they are.
I wrote Ken Salazar, and all his buddies, when the Department of Interior said they were going to 'toughen' off shore drilling regulations(because of the BP oil spill) to strongly encourage him to do the same for On Shore drilling(because of Runner Susan's yard). It's a no wonder he didn't email me back. BLM is public land, and it's not being protected.
If you have ever been do CO or NM BLM land, they were the most beautiful places to ever visit.
With the Natural Gas cross stitches it isn't the land it used to be and it never will be.
"this land is your land, this land is my land, from California to the NY Island. From the Red Wood Forest…This land was made for you and me.
NOT FOR GASHOLES!
