In the US fracking frst started as a typical cowboy industry. Many state governmnts made really swetheart deals in favor of letting the drillers get what they want. Pa hs been especially fracking friendly nd its only now that the industry is being roped into doing "Whats right"
Im in favor of exploitation of resources in an environmentally savvy means. The jobs created not only benefit frqckers but also the science and engineering community who designs and builds the controls and safe gurds.
Being dead set against it just gives more time to irtier extractive techniques like peat nd cannel,, aof coaling coke, oil tr, and secondary extraction with no controls.
My state has 1.3 of all its 84000 miles of rivers that are all dead xones. Due, entirely to past coal mining . We re faced with huge bills to restore streams to normal phs (we hve entire rivers with a pH of 2 (Thats like concentrated acetic acid )
The greens over here are silent about ongoing energy while they demonstrate agains fracking.
Their views on private proprty rights goes against my views also. When a movement becomes too Socialist for me, theres nothing I want of its legacy.
