Vermont first state in nation to ban fracking for oil and gas
May 4, 2012

Quote:
Choquette sees a huge difference between a ban and a moratorium that sunsets — he does not believe a ban will ever be rescinded. “I think the politics in this building are such that it’s terribly difficult for anyone who makes a reasoned argument in favor of an industrial process to win. I don’t think it will ever be overturned.”
However, I suspect that they'll demand their "share" of cheap natural gas extracted in less superstitious States.

I know the only thing important to you is the gas but some people give a Sh*t about the environment they live in. Odd huh?

If you can't take the gas, don't eat the beans!

I never said that stupid, silly, ignorant, superstitious people who believe electricity is just some sort of magic spell can't care about the environment.

(Of course it isn't the real environment they care about, but a pretty fantasy that has no tapeworms, carcinoma, pathogens, cute little fawns being eaten by alligators, major meteor impacts, pristine herds of antelope being engulfed in volcanic eruptions or human beings dying of simple exposure, and where Man's ecological niche is as a food source.)

Now, as a few seconds of actual thought would have revealed, that metaphor simply doesn't work.

I embrace science, technology and industry. It's the people who encounter technology that they don't understand, and so reflexively and hysterically reject it and demand that their Masters ban it that are more likely to live in caves in the foreseeable future.

I'll be living in civilized, technically advance housing.
