I think it's worth the click and the video time. I watched it as it was presented on the program this morning and was initially skeptical on how fair and objective it would be. I was pleasantly surprised.
I agree. The coverage was so far and balanced that for a minute I thought this was FOX News rather than one of the alphabet networks.
I’ll review it.
I'd say the government is licking it's chops to regulate it and tax it into oblivion.
Fossil fuels are racist and benefit the rich only...therefore they should remain underground and buried....only non American companies and countries should mine and use it./s
I’m in the industry, and I agree that it’s a fairly reasonable and balanced presentation, though a bit lightweight.
The only real environmental issue is the water demand, and the industry is addressing that issue.
However, there are some watermelons who intentionally use blatantly deceptive propaganda to ban fraccing entirely. The presenter avoids calling them out in his conclusion. But, he’s right that fraccing is here to stay.
While the piece was as balanced as I have seen from CBS in a long time, the bird woman (married to the Cornell Professor) is so stereotypical of the anti-anything-anytime-anywhere crowd. I doubt if that woman ever had a pleasant thought in her entire life and she and her fellow Marxists, hiding behind the environmental movement, will not be satisfied until all our lives are as miserable as hers.
The “test well water before and after drilling” should have been plain to Captain Obvious and only a retard would drill without such prior testing.
Also in reading the comments it is quite obvious who the average SeeBS viewer tends to be.
What causes anti-fracking, lib heads to explode is not the supposed “dangers” of fracking, but the fact that there is a gigantic supply of new energy that can be accessed. They thought they had suppressed all efforts to extract new energy and we had reached “peak” oil. They thought the public had bought in to their scam about wind and solar energy replacing oil and gas as energy sources. They found out they were wrong and are desperate to stop new efforts like fracking. And if they have to lie to the public to do so, they’re more than willing.

Natural gas has no odor. Sour gas sometimes does and is likely to kill you
