  1. I agree whit the franking relly what harm is ther drilling for oil I think it a good think

  2. You can’t even string a sentence together, so I think it’s fair to say environmental science and poring through leagues of damning medical evidence against fracking probably isn’t your bag. Remind me of how great you think fracking is when you can’t sell your house, your air quality is similar to living in the middle of a ring road and there are 51 30k ltr tankers thundering through your village at all hours. 24-hour drill permits that allow for burning 10,000 cubic feet of methane (which btw has radon gas – that’s radioactive – chemically inert within it) can be a bind like that.
