Most of America has no idea what fracking is or how it keeps their energy costs so low. But the process, which releases petroleum and natural gas from extremely low depths, has also become a huge target of the left. Opponents of fracking claim that it damages nearby land and water supplies even though the evidence shows the process is perfectly safe. In fact, the Health Department in New York found it to be perfectly fine.
A whistleblower gave an ignored report to the New York Times which said, “By implementing the proposed mitigation measures, the Department expects that human chemical exposures during normal [fracking] operations will be prevented or reduced below levels of significant health concern.”
The report added that further study was unnecessary as it would “involve making a large number of assumptions about the many … variables that influence the nature and degree of potential human exposure and toxicity.”
Glenn addressed the story and the hypocrisy on fracking on radio this morning:
