Not a surprise - there is NOTHING good about fracking except Maybe cheaper gas and for how long does that last?

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Well, although gas prices have come down a bit in recent weeks, the price of a barrel of oil is still just short of $100 again at around $97. It is enormously overvalued. But, Pres. Obama now is proud to say that the U.S. is attaining #1 position in production. Pandering to the wealthiest who are heavily invested in that market, as well as the producers. Wonder how he would feel if the house his family lived in was surrounded by fracking, and threatened the health of his own kids......

Not really "new" news, this was more or less known for a long time, but thanks for posting this article to remind us, and to show that our suspicions were right.

But I must add: If this were the only danger related to fracking.......

Thanks Cal
