Good on them. But if we abandon fracking and other fossil fuels, what would all those billionaires and investors do if they could not realize the wealth that they laid claim to?
The coal, oil and natural gas is not theirs. It belongs to the nation. They just laid a claim because they find it and then they feel they have the right to exploit it and ruin everyone else's lives.
It's time that people asserted themselves and said; "Enough!"
We don't desperately need fossil fuels anymore. We's seen what harm they can do to us and what a great danger they will bring us. We would rather develop clean energy!

Sadly, Fracking is going on all over south Texas, by the time they finish we will look just like one big oilfield!

I live in Canada where the natural gas industry is currently expanding. I worry for the safety of our drinking water.

I wish it could have been atleast 10,000. Fracking is disasterous for the environment.
