Surly: I ran into this and could just NOT stay away. I concentrated on North Dakota in the hopes of communicating to a certain Fracker Doomer (AND his Gaia worshiping pal who is SUPPOSED to be counseling the fracker to stop this **** or lose a friend! ) the REAL WORLD damage he is doing to ALL of nature, including himself. 

There is no way in hell that the lying sacks of fossil fuel **** that curse the Doomstead Diner (with their endless BULL**** about how "safe" Fracking is when done responsibly, how they are doing it to "help prevent a collapse of civilization",  and how "hysterical" my claims are of the massive damage done to our biosphere by Fracking) can DANCE AROUND THIS (of course they will try  ;) ).

A SUMMARY of what FRACKING has done, AND CONTINUES TO DO, to North Dakota and the life forms that happen to be in the way of Fracking "profits".

REMEMBER FOLKS, all the above are just "isolated incidents" and the "science isn't in" that fracking is bad for you and the biosphere as told us by Frackers and other Fossil Fuel supporting perfidious energy "experts" of various levels of bufoonery and erudite baloney spouting.

Here's the latest three "isolated incidents" that people like MKing and Roamer justify as being "necessary" for them to "put food on the table".  SO IT GOES...

Agelbert Suggestion to people who can still add and subtract: Do your part. Tell the truth about Fracking. If you have a friend who justifies fracking, tell him he stops fracking or he loses a friend, PERIOD!

A study by Bloomberg New Energy Finance showed that the cost of renewable energy is now $80/MWh versus the cost of new build coal fired generation of $143/Mwh and new build gas fired generation of $116/MWh.
