Well I think most that visit this site will understand why I put climate change in qoutes.. Very interested to hear others thoughts on this. I'm shocked that a 'judge' would make such a politically charged and scientifically uneducated ruling like this. I'm honestly a bit biased since I work in the industry but also see US drilling as a way to get our country more free and self reliant. Read as, GTFO of the middle east. I understand there are inherent risks just like any industry but modern drilling and frac'ing is a very safe practice.

On another note.. Oregon banned frac'ing which is hilarious considering there is NO oil and gas activity in Oregon!

Had a conversation with someone a bit more educated on this process and what's going on. Apparently this is more procedural and just a publicity stunt. Supposedly the ban will be overturned within a few months once they have estimated potential emissions generated from industry development. We shall see.
