Reading the Nov. 25 Sunday Forum page “All about energy,” it seems the consensus opinion is that fracking is evil; it will contaminate water and kill our food supply! If the water we drink doesn’t kill us, we’ll get cancer later.
We really have a bunch of panicked people, don’t we? And they seem to have read every far-left liberal, extremist environmental, anti-fossil fuel article known to exist and know all the facts, such as how far the aquifer is from the shale within a few centimeters, etc.
What would these horrified humans say if they learned the fracking industry had developed a potable fracking fluid that is now in use throughout the industry replacing that bad old cancer-producing, contaminating stuff? I saw a segment on Fox News about this a couple weeks ago. Andrea Tantaros, a Fox News contributor from Pennsylvania, drank a glass of it on air with no side effects.
So they can rest easy and be dreaming up other frivolous reasons to protest fracking.
