Vic Drummond has written several times about the silliness of the anti-fracking group and I would have to add a few comments to his.
We can disregard what the politicians have to say about fracking because they are like hawks and will follow any group hysteria they can find in order to garner votes, most of whom care less about facts, just votes.
I would have to ask the question of whether the anti-fracking groups are unpatriotic and simply following orders from the OPEC oil rich countries that are absolutely against America becoming energy self-reliant because it would cut into their ability to raise money for terrorism around the world. Let’s be honest, we all know that a good part of the price we pay for gas and oil goes to fund murderous outfits like ISIS. I frame this as just a question and of course we really don’t know who started the anti-fracking movement or where its roots may lie. We do know, however, OPEC will not be happy if we become energy self-sufficient and the anti-fracking groups just play into their hands.
