Wow...what a biased piece of 'journalism'. Go ahead and bring up potential issues of the oil & gas fracking debate but there's a lot of good counter-argument as well that wasn't even mentioned. A few lame quotes don't count. This issue isn't as lop-sided as this article makes it out to be. No references to websites like energyindepth.org that state counter-arguments to these unfounded accusations. The energy industry is VERY regulated and this article makes it sounds like they do whatever they want - whenever they want. NOT TRUE at all. Do some research and don't read 'the news'. The media is so biased, this is proof of that.
