How fracking insulates USA: Our view
USA Today, by The Editorial Board

Original Article

Posted By:JHSMom02, 8/28/2014 10:39:21 AM

There is much news these days from the world´s major energy producing regions. Almost none of it is good. Iraq, Libya and Syria are in turmoil. Russia, the world's largest exporter of natural gas and the second largest exporter of oil, is bullying Ukraine and by extension Western Europe. And Iran's nuclear program may yet provoke a market-roiling conflict.

Comments:
Good article. And it´s short. Drill, baby, drill. Horizontal drilling using fracking is helping to make us less dependent on foreign oil. Good.

We need to expand natural gas or LPG exports to Europe to wean them off their Russian suppliers. But that´s going to require some infrastructure on the East Coast, many years away or if at all with the renegade EPA.

We have fracking, F-16´s and F-35´s, all of which were opposed by the socialists, so glad to hear some of them now saying how glad to have them.

The underlying problem will not be solved until we all stop listening to the environmentalists. The fracking will be shut down ASAP by environmentalists. They will apply the strictest standards to the "studies" of environmental impact from fracking or any real source of energy while giving a pass to their already approved solar and wind farms. So what if the propellers and concentrated solar energy of these projects kill birds. An environmental study is rigged to give the answer already favoured by the environmentalists. Other projects need not apply! The sooner we admit this the better off we will be. I have long believed that the green movement is the old red movement being used to hamstring the western economy. Let the enviros clean up their hero Russia´s environmental disasters - Chernobel, the Rusting nuclear fleet on the Kola peninsula and the draining of the Aral sea and then come to obstruct the west on environmental grounds. If they object to these real disasters they will quickly put in their place by their masters. They have no credibility!

From the Times-Standard Opinion: "Hydraulic fracturing in California uses an average of 160,000 gallons of water per well. That´s about one-fifth of an Olympic-sized swimming pool. In fact, in 2013 the California Department of Conservation reported hydraulic fracturing used slightly more than 300 acre feet of water in a year. For context, California´s golf courses use 140,000 acre feet and agriculture used 34 million acre feet. Not to mention that oil development actually produces water, which is sometimes treated and sold to agriculture.

USA Today recognizing that US energy development is a good thing. Amazing.

Of course, at the end they throw in the mandatory hand wringing -"And, yes, climate change is in desperate need of attention."

Perhaps one day they will also recognize that 1)the climate is NOT dramatically changing and 2) there is nothing that we can do about the climate, even if it was.

Of course it has been left out of the article that this "success" and reaching the long sought goal of energy independence has been reached over the extreme resistance of the federal government. Most of these resources have been pulled from private land. BO has blocked access to federal land for drilling. He has even lost court battles over it.

This is a win in SPITE of liberals. Imagine where we might be if liberals actually did things to the benefit of America.

And of course "climate change", the fraud of the century, must be mentioned. Gack!

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

President Barack Obama insisted on Wednesday that he would not send ground troops into Iraqi combat zones to fight the ISIS terrorist army, directly contradicting his top general who said a day earlier that the president asked him for boots-on-the-ground recommendations ´on a case-by-case basis.´ (Snip)´As your commander-in-chief,´ Obama insisted, ´I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.´ On Tuesday, however, Joint Chiefs chairman Gen.

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
