Kudos to Chimera Energy Corp. for addressing the issue of groundwater protection. Hopefully this will be successful but it would be nice if we could focus more on alternative energies.

Fossil fuels are bad, no matter how they are extracted. However, a waterless alternative to hydraulic fracking is definitely the "lesser of two evils." The real question is how long do we have to wait for something good? If alternative energy was subsidized at the rate that fossil fuels are subsidized, there would be plenty of clean energy in every community in the U.S.

Green energy MUST be a priority in the next decades.

WHY CAN'T THEY JUST GET IT THE RIGHT WAY?

Non-Hydraulic Oil Extraction sounds a lot more environmentally friendly than hydraulic fracturing. Will the oil companies that are already heavily invested in hydraulic fracturing be willing to spend the money to purchase the new equipment? The very fact that they continue to perform this process --in spite of the fact that water supplies are being polluted and earthquakes are occurring-- proves that profit means more to them than the environment, so it's not a sure thing by any stretch of the imagination.

Good but bad. There is enough gas in the ground to destroy the world with greenhouse gases many times over.

I agree, Alexandra Rodda. It's urgent for us to move away from all gas and oil toward a greener world and a greener economy. This means overcoming the tremendous power of oil companies, which is very difficult but essential to a healthier future for our descendants.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854

When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy

Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it

We need to stop big businesses from thinking they can control the country and destroy our earth all for profit like they did during the Bush's administrations. Human, animal and environment health all have to come first before profit.

Big Business already controls this country through the best government that corporate dollars can buy. The wealthy swine profit more and more off the suffering of all of us and of OUR planet. Anyone that wants to stop Big Business is talking nothing less than regime change. We cannot hope to fix the problems of the system within the system because it IS the system that is the problem. Until things get so bad that all of us are ready to raise our picket signs and take to the streets and DEMAND our grievances be heard, then nothing will change. And we will all be doomed by our passive collaboration with those who would be our masters.

UNTIL, we can successfully manage wind and solar to satisfy our needs, I have little problem with other energy sources, as long as the environment does not suffer.

No offense to Mexico, but, what does it say for the U.S.A., that we were unable or unwilling to discover this technology?
EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING is becoming 'political'. Our country to falling behind many other industrialized countries in the _morals_ category.
As for being a Christian nation, that is a joke, especially, among the conservatives. If they follow 'any' bible, it isn't the Christian bible, I was caught for 8 years in Catholic school. Following in the footsteps of Christ, is 'nowhere' close to their behavior.
