Fracking is a bad idea. Why do they have to do it in New York? when Sweden can do this:

At 96 percent, Sweden has one of the highest rates of recycling. So when the country began generating heat and energy from its trash, it should have come as no surprise they would eventually run out of garbage.

“We have more capacity than the production of waste in Sweden and that is usable for incineration,” Catarina Ostlund, Senior Advisor for the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency told Public...

Fracking is a bad idea. Why do they have to do it in New York? when Sweden can do this:

At 96 percent, Sweden has one of the highest rates of recycling. So when the country began generating heat and energy from its trash, it should have come as no surprise they would eventually run out of garbage.

“We have more capacity than the production of waste in Sweden and that is usable for incineration,” Catarina Ostlund, Senior Advisor for the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency told Public Radio International.

This situation has caused the Scandinavian country to begin importing 800,000 tons of trash from its neighbors and charging them for it, allowing the Swedes to truly claim that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

In addition to being a revenue stream, Sweden’s waste-to-energy program generates about 20 percent of the country’s district heating that functions by pumping heated water into pipes that run through residential and commercial buildings. The program also generates electricity for a quarter-million Swedish homes.

Swine have very long thin penises. When I think of fracking, I think of a political cartoon of a giant boar-piggy-bank with it's penis penetrating deep into mother earth. It's looking over at another pig, waiting in line for the whore in the road, and saying "she's rape tight, but at least there's plenty of oil!"

Poor Earth. Poor spirit of the ones who do not understand this massive suicide.

We have contributed to many websites money to prevent fracking and yet we still need to get involved with our local elected officials to make laws in our towns.....myra.

Zoe, this is beyond scary...it is potentially life threatening. If we don't have fresh water to drink humans are doomed to extinction!
