Documentary filmmaker and activist Josh Fox has a warning for Washington policymakers: You’ll face “political consequences” if you ignore the anti-fracking movement.
You will not face political consequences if you ignore the anti-fracking movement. The administration had to pick which bone to throw to the deep ecologist religious fanatics: they could either hassle hydraulic fracking, or yjr Keystone pipeline. It wasn’t a hard call: the administration chose Keystone. You see, natural gas is ‘green’ energy in the orthodox liberal canon, so Fox’s band of schismatics are in fact also a bunch of unhelpful heretics who are dangerously close to being formally declared to be obdurate in their error. Should that happen… well, an auto-de-fe would probably be too ironic, all things considered. But certainly loud anti-frackers will be kept from all the good policy groups and parties.
Hey, it’s an improvement from the European Witch Craze.
Via don’t remember, sorry. Might have been an email.
