Noted. I think it's time for Merkel to go if she presses forward with this.

Thx Cal for posting this, I,too have been waiting to find an English language article on this.
Should Exxon dare to move in here and exploit us, you bet we'll chase them out . Merkel can definitely forget it in September. And these 2 states mentioned are traditionally red, which would be blue in the US. No way this can get passed, they'll be facing a giant up hill battle! Our Green Party is a very strong minority faction.
Of course it was our yellow party ( the liberals= Free Dems) who paved the way for this, Foreign Minister Westerwelle brewed this when visiting US.

Our opposition probably got a little extra help from "Promised Land", starring Matt Damon. The critical film about fracking was just presented at the Berlin Film Festival that ended today and screening will start now.

Shale bed oil is very costly to extract and most of the deposits won't yield as much as say the largest which happens to be the Alberta Tar Sands. I though Germany was very pro ecology? The threat to water systems and aquifers is not worth the cost not to mention the airborne contaminants.
