Just Came Across This Lovely Little Gem...

How can an agency, who is in charge of regulating an industry, be actively promoting that same industry?  This makes absolutely NO sense to me.  The Texas Railroad Commission is in charge of regulating all the gas drilling going on in Texas, yet their fearless leader, Elizabeth Ames Jones, insists there is no problem with fracking, nor has there ever BEEN a problem with fracking.  She in fact states that "it is morally wrong to deprive Americans the benefit of their God-given natural energy resources because a few special interest Grimm Brothers insist on perpetuating fairy tales.”

Fairy tales? Really? I think the fairy tale is that natural gas is clean energy.  That's a total oxymoron.  The only clean energies are solar and wind.

It seems she has completely omitted the fact that fracking waste is also causing water issues as well as environmental degradation.

  1. I guess when all the water is gone or contaminated because we were morally right in letting Texans get that mailbox money, we can just drink condensate. Oh, I have an idea!!! We'll just make some imitation water. Yeah, that the ticket.
