A strong view against fracking

February 20, 2013

I look forward to the rapid dismissal of these ridiculous “taking” lawsuits. If zoning to protect public health is a taking then we’re all getting taken. Fortunately, we do have rules to protect us here unlike the poor, low population counties with lax, nonexistent, or blatant conflict of interest by landowner-dominated town boards where most extraction has occurred so far.

The idea that regulations can make fracking safe is preposterous and dependent upon complete ignorance of the scope of the process.

Would the silent majority kindly address some of these issues?
