Ms. Hauter, how embarrassing that you create a column like this, with a number of statements that are either gross exaggerations or simply untrue, and how equally embarrassing that people believe them. I've been involved, seen it, know the science and engineering, and none of what you have stated in regards to frac'ing is true. The possible exception is risk. There is risk in anything we as humans do to advance our society. Is there risk in a nuclear reactor blowing up? Yes. Is there risk in a hydroelectric dam bursting and drowning thousands? Yes. And yet we as a society seem to be able to live near a nuclear reactor, and downstream from dams. I propose that the risk of frac'ing is infinitely smaller than the two examples I've mentioned above, as well as countless others, and yet you pound a drum and try to get thousands to dance to your music. I know the facts. I'll skip this dance, thank you.

The problem with your risk analysis calculus is your definition of benefits as well as damage costs. In your Empathy Deficit Disordered world, so-called "externalized" costs do not count.

Additionally, even the potential risks that DO count are discounted because you simply do not care if some environmental downside from your profit over people and planet technology will, as scientists have stated OVER AND OVER, occur within a century.

Also, if you had a shred of objectivity, you would agree that medical doctors should have access to epidemiological studies of cancer clusters near nuclear power plants, accept that it is WRONG for the NRC to oversee (as in GAG) the World Health Organization's publishing of anything that details radionuclide damage to humans and finally, that an exact and detailed list of all fracking fluid chemicals should be available to medical doctors by region.

But you are silent as death on those topics.

Your cause and effect horizon is so narrow that you might even qualify as a non-self aware being, if it wasn't for your mens rea happy talk propaganda on behalf of fossil fuels and nuclear power.

Have a nice day.
