Fracking Discussion on Blogging Heads TV

23 Apr

Andrew Revkin and Abrahm Lustgarten discuss fracking (27 minutes). This discussion is going to become more and more intense as fracking itself becomes more intense. Fracking makes more natural gas available than before, but at what cost? Do we even know how to estimate the costs? What about the physician’s oath: Do no harm?

    Does “Go frack yourself” mean what i want it to mean to these people? The Halliburton/Cheney loophole will hopefully become a referent for a hideous and vile mistake.

    Do we know how to estimate the true costs of any of our planet plundering activities? NOPE.
    Hence the power and value of the “ignorance based worldview” advocated by people like Wes Jackson, Wendell Berry and Fats Waller. W to the 3rd power! Wes Wendell & Waller. If you don’t know what it is, don’t mess with it.
    Don’t damage your gut bacteria colony. Those 100s of “mutual aid” organisms are keeping you alive, moment by moment.
    Can we sue the nuke power companies for damaging the micro-organisms in rivers, oceans — hey, does anyone know what radioactivity does to pollens in the air?

    In relation to real estate.
    Location, location and location.
    Do no harm, do no harm, do no harm.

    Hi, Spyder. I’m thinking it’s the Halliburton/Cheney loophole that needs fracking.
