Seven Facts for Fracking Deniers
American Thinker, by Jeffrey Folks

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/10/2014 10:18:23 AM

At a recent town hall meeting in Edmond, Oklahoma, local citizens gathered to discuss the possible connection between fracking and increased seismic activity in their area. According to one published report, members of the audience left “disappointed” that no consensus had been reached linking fracking and seismic activity. (snip)Clearly, the left is engaged in an all-out effort to smear the oil and gas industry by spreading misinformation and fostering confusion – such as ignoring the difference between fracking itself and wastewater injection. The intent of this effort is to cripple the U.S. economy by depriving it of an efficient and

If there is a connection between hydraulic fracturing and earth tremblers then most of the nation should shaking, rattling, and rolling.

The marked increase in earthquakes we´ve been having here in Oklahoma is simply due to the Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves at what is happening here in the US.

The people are such slothful idiots. They will not study the issue or the subject. They want to hear "sound bites" and slogans and talking points. I know fracking inside and out. It´s been going on for almost half a century. Every well in West Texas has been fracked at least twice...both oil and gas wells. In fact, after a well is completed, the first post drilling operation is a mandatory frack job to open the well. All fractures are opened by high pressure in the production zone and then a gel containing sand is pumped into the fractures...this is called "propant" because the sand squeezes into the tiny rock fractures and props the cracks open so the product, oil or gas or both, can flow to the well opening. It does not contaminate ground water, it does not cause earth quakes, it does not open the ground to swallow precious aquifers.

But, telling those goons who are on the left and who listen to their favorite sources of information, like Susan Sarandon and Matt Damon, is pointless. They are followers of trends, not intelligent thinking human beings. Just very useful idiots, as Stalin described them.

Of course they are related. What difference does it make since the quakes are so small most can´t even be felt. Pumping water out also makes quakes as does damming up rivers and making large heavy lakes. Everything is related.

From everything I´ve read, I suspect the cause is more closely related to pumping down the aquifers than fracking (fracking is way deeper and leaves behind a pretty much intact rock support for all the land above - even though that rock has cracks throughout. Pumping out the more shallow aquifers often leaves behind relatively unsupported cavern roofs - which can collapse and rattle the ground above.

Here is another fact. The boom in cheap, fracked natural gas, displacing coal, has dropped overall CO2 emissions in the US. U.S. energy-related carbon emissions are 10 percent below 2005 levels.

Technology has once again improved supply, efficiency, and environmental conditions. You would think that lefties would be cheering this but NO WAY. The only way they applaud lowered emissions is if it is achieved through deprivation and suffering. Is that screwed up or what?

In other words, pumping down the aquifers to grow the corn used for the alcohol in gasohol blends are causing earthquakes. Better premise than fracking causing earthquakes.

Obama´s ´no strategy´ gaffe

Let’s cut President Obama some slack. Golf is a challenging game, and he has been focused like a laser (as Bill Clinton used to say) on improving his game on Martha’s Vineyard, and there’s only so much a guy can do. Coming up with a strategy for dealing with guys who are the junior varsity can wait – and after all there are three fundraisers and a wedding beckoning this holiday weekend, so what’s the hurry? Unfortunately for any residual desire of President Obama’s desire to be seen as a serous leader, the above sarcastic apologia fits his pattern of behavior

We´ve been focusing a lot on President Obama´s foreign policy, from Ukraine to Libya to Syria to Iraq to Israel and Iran. However, get ready for ObamaCare to make a return engagement to our front pages, and politics as well. Sally Pipes posted some numbers yesterday that won´t make Democrats happy, especially those in tight elections: "Get readyto pay more for health insurance next year, compliments of Obamacare.

I recently read an article entitled “What Black Parents Tell Their Sons About the Police” and I began to ponder the downward spiral in race relations over the past five years. According to the author Jazmine Hughes: “Such is the burden of black parenting. Being a black parent, especially of a black boy, comes with the added onus of having to protect your child from a country that is out to get him -- a country that kills someone that looks like him every 28 hours, a country that will likely imprison him by his mid-thirties if he doesn´t get his

If you ever doubted the direction France is headed, you need doubt no more. The headline reads: “One in six French people say they support ISIS” (snip) So, to recap: Muslims comprise 6.5% of the population in France. (This minority wreaks a lot of havoc, no?) They are “disgruntled.” (What’s new?) The terror state of Qatar is investing massive amounts of money in France. (What could go wrong?) One if six people in France support ISIS. (Gee, I wonder what the demographics of that group are?) French Muslims voted in droves for a socialist president.

Cable Karma: Fox News soars as CNN

According to a report in The Wrap, CNN and sister network Headline News are planning to lay off 550 staffers, a huge and very painful cutback.

The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS’s depredations in Syria and Iraq, and Hamas’s misrule in Gaza have finally caused the Saudis to publicly signal a rethinking of the reflexive commitment to destroying Israel. A tacit alignment of Saudi Arabia with Israel has long been discussed, but a very senior and influential member of the Saudi ruling family has very publicly declared that maybe the Jewish state can be tolerated, the Palestinians should ramp down their attempts to destroy it.

It is essential to the Democrats’ hopes for a strong black turnout in November that the manufactured narrative of evil white cops assassinating an innocent black teenager be maintained. As Richard Baehr noted to me, “…after the video appeared of the robbery and theft, a new narrative was needed for Michael Brown. It is not only the robbery/ assault/in the store, but the reports of violence to the officer (damaged eye socket), and admission by Brown´s team that he was in an altercation with officer in the car, that has impacted pubic opinion that he was a choirboy.” The New York

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job.

The Vietnam War was won by American forces in the field, together with South Vietnamese, but it was lost in the media. (Snip) I believe that the explosion of ISIS photos is finally putting an end to decades massive Western denial of Islamist horrors. For thirty years, the West has been in denial, ever since Jimmy Carter surrendered to Ayatollah Khomeini in the mass kidnapping of our embassy personnel in 1979. Since then the OPEC cartel has simply bought up Western politicians and media owners, until the average American can no longer think straight about the clear and present threat of jihad war.

Rest assured that the riots, the violence, the looting, and the destruction of private property that has taken place in Ferguson, Missouri in the wake of Michael Brown’s death has all been for the greater good. The attention all of this brings will, according to Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson, “make it better for our sons to be better black men.” Pardon me for asking the question, but should we be teaching our children to become better white men, brown men, or black men rather than simply becoming better men and better American citizens? I’ll stop there, lest I offend

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it.

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”
