WOW! Was sitting here watching my local Fox channel and a 90 second commercial came on about how technology is allowing us to safely and efficiently remove natural gas buried in rock. No real surprises through the first 60 seconds of the commercial, but the last 30 seconds sort of shocked me, and through me for a loop. According to this commercial there are "individuals, politicians, and organizations" that prefer we continue buying our energy from Governments that openly support terrorist groups who are killing and /or trying to kill U.S. citizens and "brave soldiers". Of course I have seen many fracking commercials in the last several months, but none of those commercials have ever insinuated that those of us against fracking are helping support terrorist organizations.
I am curious to know if this commercial is running locally or if it is Nationwide. Of course I am certain that there are few, if any, that participate in this Thread that agree with what this commercial is implying, but I am curious what opinions are as to how effective this commercial might be on the average person who really has know knowledge of fracking.
Man-made earthquakes? Tornadoes caused by U.S. cities? Volcanoes activated by humans? NGC examines how efforts to harness natural resources can trigger natural disasters. Watch how a Chinese dam weighing as much as 3,000 Empire State Buildings caused tremors that claimed the lives of 90,000 people. Witness how another dam could trigger mudslides that bury millions. Investigate how growing urban areas can cause tornadoes and how mining and drilling have activated deadly mud volcanoes. Read more: channel.nationalgeographic.com...
