Thanks for the post. Boone Pickens was on CNN Friday touting natgas...again (video below). I believe we're finally, finally, finally seeing some positive movement via major magazines and tv.
Why didn't Time include the Haynesville shale?
Lawn chemicals are more dangerous than the fracturing fluids. People are not aware that the most common weed chemical, 2,4-D is basically "Agent Orange". This and other chemicals are continually and incorrectly applied (I have worked in the commercial/residential landscape industry for 30 years) in our neighborhoods with little or no state regulation. Children and pets (mine included) are the victims of these unnecessary toxic products.
Even though the Time article touts the benefits of natural gas, I'm still reading and hearing negative comments about hydraulic fracturing.
Why pick on the natural gas industry, a closely regulated entity that is providing many benefits to America, instead of an industry that is openly poisoning our communities?
I wonder how much it would cost NG utility companies to install public access to CNG?
Folks who have a phone pay a small fee to support 911 service, why not a small fee on gas bills to support cng access for vehicles? I would think the 911 fee would be even more expensive..
It does not matter if HS is not mentioned or that a lot of the problems are dwelt on. Americans are problem solvers. It's the front cover that people will see and remember. I'm going to get a copy of the cover and frame it.
