And just for a little morning laugh to lighten up your day, there's this gem:
"We have no evidence that hydraulic fracturing is causing problems," says Lee Fuller, vice president of government relations for the Independent Petroleum Association of America. Without evidence of problems, he says there's no reason to pile on more regulation.Right. There's no evidence of problems because the practice is relatively new, and no doubt the industry has done it's best to prevent any research from being done that would serve as evidence of a problem. And I should have more faith in the regulatory agencies that your industry has in it's pocket? Really?!? Are you kidding me?
"I think people need to have more faith in the regulatory agencies that are watching it very closely and their ability to respond to issues if they arise," says Fuller.
Smells like a fracking load of bull to me.
