Australia's southeastern state of Victoria on Friday "put a hold" on hydraulic fracturing, - just like Obama has done with the XL pipeline - "put a hold" on it until after he takes the Oath of Office, he hopes

Let's hope this hold becomes a permanent ban. Why don't fossil fuel companies start developing renewable energy sources and the infastructure needed to replace fossil fuel distribution? They have the money to do it and thus assure their place as the primary energy distributers well into the future. Not that I want them in that position, but why make good business decisions now while the field is wide open? Fossil fuels WILL run out. Instead of these hideously harmful, last gasp moves, why not face reality? It makes you wonder.
