Well, this 'enviro-wacko' is not exactly ready to say Frack away, baby...

There are MANY issues pertaining to the dangers of this fricking fracking business...and I wouldn't bet the farm on this particular study giving us the 'green light' to go ahead and drill another ten thousand holes in the ground today and jam millions of gallons of that nasty chemical cocktail down in there to free that wondrous, cheap gas...

These are just a few of THOUSANDS of sites containing info on the concerns some of us 'enviro-wacko's' have with the practice of FRACKING & it goes beyond the issue of drinking water...not that I am in the least bit comforted by the study noted in this article..

While I agree wholeheartedly with ol' Harry...

There is ZERO CHANCE that the 'we don't believe in science' crowd on the right, the ones that believe that the Earth is only 6000 years old, for example, will agree to properly examine & fund the fight against climate change.
'It's summer! It gets hot in summer!
LIbruls! Al Gore! It ain't hot at MY house! The Lame-stream Media!'
And on and on it goes.
I'm sure Michelle Bachmann will inform us as to what course is proper here.

Wait...we have this report coming in now from Michelle...

"The big thing we are working on now is the global warming hoax. It's all voodoo, nonsense, hokum, a hoax."

"There isn't one such study because carbon dioxide is not a harmful gas, it is a harmless gas. Carbon dioxide is natural. It is not harmful. It is part of Earth's life cycle...And yet we're being told that we have to reduce this natural substance and reduce the American standard of living to create an arbitrary reduction in something that is naturally occurring in the earth."

There you have it, folks!
Nothing more than 'hoakum'!
We're going to be FINE!

Rusty...

I don't watch television, except sporting events. Nice try, though.

The discourse from the right is stunning...

Not just the usual suspects we see here under the Sun, posting their usual ego/racial/politico-centric mantra like it's some form of 'Facts from the Tablets, Sent Down From On High', but nationally, you see the likes of Rush, Ann Coulter, Terrible Ted Nugent, et.al, using the George Zimmerman acquittal like it's a license to be RACIALLY DIVISIVE all over again; 'We' won! Yeah! Take THAT you liberal, minority lovin', Gay Marriage backin', ObamaCare supportin' commie pinko Wags'!!!

The quaint notion that the right holds to be self-evident, that all men are created equal...and Native Americans & Blacks in particular have held onto their 'wronged status' far too long & should just 'assimilate, already'! en-masse, & that Hispanics ought to just 'go home' already so we can 'go back to enjoying our God-given white, Judeo-Christian country in peace & prosperity 'like we always have' is... amazingly, wildly over-simplistic & naive, not to mention ridiculously outside the bounds of REALITY.

Personal gun ownership & Stand Your Ground laws have been propagated by the NRA with massive cash & misinformation campaigns from Coast to Coast in America...

WHO do they target in these 'campaigns'? What is their ulterior motive in so doing? Why are 'scare tactics' so effective here in the 'Land of the Free & the Home of the Brave'?

Why is it necessary for 'conservatives' to celebrate the acquittal of GZ as some form of vindication for their political positions & personal prejudices? Are things THAT DESPERATE on the right side of the aisle?
I believe so.
