I'm sure everyone involved will look at the science and facts only, yes?

Let us not forget that drilling deep into the Earth can result in unforeseen consequences.

For instance, that time that the Mole Men crawled out of the drill shaft and terrorized a small town!

Superman to the rescue!

I must admit, in that photograph I posted it looks like Superman has joined the side of the Mole Men. This does not bode well for us.

Meanwhile in the real world:

EPA Backpedals on Fracking - WSJ.com

On Friday, the agency told a federal judge it withdrew an administrative order that alleged Range Resources Corp. had polluted water wells in a rural Texas county west of Fort Worth. Under an agreement filed in U.S. court in Dallas, the EPA will also drop the lawsuit it filed in January 2011 against Range, and Range will end its appeal of the administrative order.
Close






In addition to dropping the case in Texas, the EPA has agreed to substantial retesting of water in Wyoming after its methods were questioned. And in Pennsylvania, it has angered state officials by conducting its own analysis of well water—only to confirm the state's finding that water once tainted by gas was safe.

During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.
