Jazzie...Unless you are driving a horse and buggy, foregoing use of electricity and giving up using modern medicine- you are using some fossil fuels.

And Catman how do you know some of us don't already use alternative sources of energy? You assume too much, know too little. You're what we call noise.

The moment we ban importing natural gas is the moment we'll ban anything else from any other country. Regulator, here's an idea of how to heat your home: Anything not made in America, anything we've imported...electronics, iPhones, clothing, etc. Maybe this'll get people to buy locally. Hmm..?

The anti-fracers should practice what they preach and give up use of fossil fuels. They can't help themselves though just like Algore.

LOL. Jazzie's on board. Just waiting for Jazzie to tell us some new technological advancement that we are going to use to heat our homes with.

The current moratorium on fracing in NY with more than 20,000 gallons is temporary. NY needs a permanent ban. With that NYS needs to step up and totally ban importation of any natural gas, heating oil, gasoline, diesel derived from fracturing. If we really want it banned we can not be hypocritical on this issue. We don't want wells in our communities and we should not expect other communities to pay the price for us.

And what would Jazzie prefer we heat our homes with? Do you even have an idea on how the gas we are using today was formed?

There are still a few who can't accept the fact 29 states and the EPA have deemed this process safe. This debate is about those who mistakenly believe in anthropogenic global warming. This hoax is perpetuated by Algore and his disciples.

Very, very sick race when we have to keep taking more and more from the Earth and do very little to return what we've used. Time to start moving back to caves.

The "Fracking" issue under discussion today is NOT the same "Fracking" from the past.The comparison is more of a .22cal bullet to a "Daisy Cutter" demolition device.The rational people opposed to these devices aren't the ones who can afford to coerce the Corporate press to publish and influence false premises to further their agendas at the detriment of the disenfranchised and deflowered public.

1 in 5 well casings fail thats an industry fact, if they drill 1000 wells in the area 200 will leak

LindaD, Are running water faucets that are on fire considered an issue?

So, apparently, because YOU don't like the results of the study, it must have been "rigged" or somebody must have been "paid off", right?

Actually, I'm not at all surprised by the results. Despite all the clamoring about the supposed "dangers" of fracking, the fact is that it's been in use for many years, and the only issues with it have been because of lax regulation and oversight on the parts of state and local officials, particularly with wastes.
