This should be fun to watch.  California has suddenly discovered that cash is available from oil reserves in the state.  And the enviros are *gasp* up in arms to stop fracking it out of the ground.

BTW - sorry if I offend any Californians here - nothing personal but your state has become a bit of a comedy routine for the rest of the nation.

A vast, untapped oil reserve in California is emerging as perhaps one of the state’s best opportunities to improve its still struggling economy, but exploration and production efforts face resistance from the powerful environmental lobby and Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration that appears not to be fully sold on the potential.

of course they do not want to go there, they are still in deals with the middle east oil companies.



In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Given that, or so they say, this mysterious process of Fracking does seem to have a tendency to cause Earth tremors, I suppose you can see what they might not think that was the best idea..
Although, of course, our old friends Mega Oil would obviously fight to protect their monopolistic hold on supplies, wouldn't they. Wouldn't it be ironical to see the Enviromental people and the Oil companies both fighting to stop this?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I wonder how the farmers feel about this... I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure the shale area overlaps with a lot of farming areas.

only for conservatives and mostly in the South. Don't project.

And "fracking" is bad.

I do not consider it "bad", but its is an operation type with a certain number of enviormental problems, especially in a geologically active zone as California. In a side note, i have noticed in the last few years how strong is the movement on the use of "fracking" to get oil and gas, worldwide.

Im an evil pinko UN slave liberal commie

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

I always saw California as one of the most progressive states in the US.

If fracking does cause quakes, then wouldn't that actually be a good thing since the process relieves pressure from inside the Earth's crust that could grow to be an even worse quake later?
