The Weather May Be Hot, But The Battle Over Fracking Is Really Heating Up

There is a full-court press being mounted by the Obama Administration, using the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the  whole gamut of environmental extremists, to shut down or at least severely inhibit and control the entire fossil fuel industry, not just natural gas drilling and production.  They care nothing about the economic health of the country, or the world for that matter.

Read on.  This irrational nonsense about the "dangers" of fracking needs to be challenged by everyone, on every level.  In particular, go to the following article and read the comments.  I like this one:

We know, from her own comments and admissions, that Lisa Jackson has a mission with regard to the production of any carbon fuel – stop it at all cost. So, one can reasonably assume that the “conclusion” to the Congressionally mandated report has already been written. Now EPA needs to scramble around and find some supporting evidence and data.
  • Bingo. There’s the real agenda. There’s a convergence of interest between the rich moonbat left and OPEC to stop fracking. It’s got nothing to do with fracking itself. Fracking is not the issue, and never was.

Study: EPA’s Probe Into Fracking’s Effect on Drinking Water Isn’t So Clean

PLUS: Celeb anti-frackers to descend on D.C. to demand Congress end the shale extraction technique altogether.

An industry-funded independent investigation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s long-running probe into the effects of hydraulic fracturing found numerous flaws in everything from the EPA’s scope to its lack of consultation with oil and gas companies.
“The study released today by Battelle—a highly respected independent science and technology organization—identifies numerous concerns with EPA’s ongoing hydraulic fracturing study,” said Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Subcommittee on Energy and Environment.
The 166-page Battelle study, submitted to the American Petroleum Institute and America’s National Gas Alliance, focused on the 2010 urging of a House conference committee that the EPA “carry out a study on the relationship between hydraulic fracturing and drinking water using a credible approach that relies on the best available science, as well as independent sources of information.”
