TxSharon can you please report on Obama's renewable energy speech that was given recently? The propaganda machine is whirling at full tilt. And all the articles are dutifully glossing over the dangers of "clean burning" Natural Gas. Wall Street Journal, which I hate but read anyway for the bias they give, parroted the age old fracturing has been safe since the 40's bullshit. You know the article is compromised when instead of listing hydrofracking as a combination of water, sand, and chemicals they say water, sand , and a small amount of chemicals. Watch the EPA do nothing now that the Obama administration has hailed our messiah the great bridge fuel to nowhere.
THIS IS WHY GASLAND NEEDED TO WIN THE OSCAR!!! To jump out ahead of all this gungho drilling propaganda.
