Noted. Thanks for posting, Cal. This says it all: "...the public was not told about the negative impacts of fracking drilling." Many people who took this money were deeply in debt, and took this money to stave off bankruptcy/foreclosure. These nasty, greedy corporations took advantage of that, and should be prosecuted for not giving them facts.

The price of anything is the amount of life exchanged for it.
It seems Corporate planetcide will be allowed as long as enough money is moving among the OnePercenters.

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.
