Rut Ro .... The Blessings Of Fracking

I remember when the nature freak branch of the liberal whack jobs thought natural gas was a good thing and touted its benefits in saving the planet from ourselves. It bit them on the ass after we figured out how to extract previously unreachable reserves by fracking. Then the inevitable happened to became evil and would kill children, puppies and destroy the planet.. In short as soon as we discovered enough viable natural gas deposits to actually make a difference in reducing these so called greenhouse gases the eco nuts decided to remove it from the table. It didn't take long for them to gear up and start churning out anti natural gas based stories books and movies and the fact that nearly every dooms day meme or tome they put up was later shot down or discredited didn't seem to trouble them a whit or tiddle, natural gas was evil, the facts be damned. Now it seems that the U.S leads the world in reducing greenhouse gas and I may have to reinvest in warmer winter clothing and once again accept the fact that for 4 months of the year I am going to be freezing my ass off and shoveling snow. This puts a crimp in my long term investment strategy as I was hoping Wilkes Barre would become the new Miami beach and my property here in pistol city would become worth something.

U.S. Led World in Reducing Carbon Emissions Due to 'Market Forces,' Fracking

The United States has led the world in reducing carbon emissions over the past six years largely due “market forces” and “technological advances" that have allowed for more domestic natural gas exploration and use.

According to a report from the International Energy Agency, “breakthroughs in how natural gas is extracted from underground shale formations were the key factors that led to the reductions” because “natural gas has a low carbon footprint.”
Since natural gas is “widely available in the United States,” entrepreneurs “are flocking to extract it from new areas.”
The report noted that the U.S. could be energy independent and a net exporter of oil in 20 years by opening up more land for fracking, which would also create well-paying jobs and boost the economies of struggling regions across the United States.
John Griffin, executive director of Associated Petroleum Industries of Michigan, speculated this good news that “doesn't get reported as much” because the progressive press and environmentalists want to demonize fracking and domestic energy sources.
"The mainstream media doesn't want to report these kinds of things,” Griffin said.
Aric Nesbitt (R), a member of the Michigan House of Representatives, agreed and said left-wing journalists would not cover this story because “it doesn’t fit their narrative.”
