    Link: Don`t Frack My Mother - Sean Lennon (with many other hipster celebutards) plead `Don`t Frack My Mother,` but what does `fracking` mean?

    Nothing has ever been accomplished with a lame protest song.

    I take that back. Just 1 thing accomplished. Annoying nearly everyone is quite an accomplishment.

    If it means here what it means on Battlestar Glactica, I don`t think he has anything to worry about.

    If it means here what it means to the natural gas production industry, I don`t give a loose dry frack if he`s worried or not...hysterical dumb$#!+ f***tards.

    For the record, I NEVER use the word `celebutard` (and I rarely use `hipster`) which means some mod-tard changed my caption.

    Why in the name of the dude did they include Yoko Ono??..

    I completely agree that they shouldn`t start fracking until they can demonstrate that it doesn`t contaminate the ground water. But Yoko Ono is like a black hole of credibility. If it gets too close, it doesn`t get out.

    Reggie Watts is awesome though.

    Fracking is global warming and gun violence and the complete elimination of abortion and standing your ground and the ability to teach Creationism in science class. Fracking is the Earth being only 6,000 years old. Fracking is a Republican government doing whatever its zealot fringe base want them to do.

    That`s what fracking is and what it means. It`s yet another opportunity for conservatives to show that they don`t give a damn about the environment or science or social statistics. It`s all about the Benjamins, yo!

    As for protest songs never doing any good, or singers/celebrities putting their efforts behind something not doing any good, you`ve obviously never heard of "Hurricane" by Bob Dylan, or read about Eddie Vedder`s involvement in helping the West Memphis Three. Songs and celebrity involvement *have* helped at times, and they have brought the right kinds of attention at times. Those are just two examples.

    smagboy - You`re right! I now love protest songs! Eddy Vedder is a HERO! Wait....It was DNA that freed the WM3 and not Eddie? Well, he may not be the best. Still, you...can`t find a better man! (unless you look around)
    Of course I`m being completely serious! just like I was in the first comment.

    Smagboy is quite a deranged little fellow. For the life of me, I`ve never advocated for any of those things.

    But about Fracking, all of my family that was in poverty in North Dakota since the Great Depression is now very well off. And there are jobs! And even Walmart there pays very decently because the supply of unskilled labor is so low. And we no longer have to buy Middle Eastern oil, we get to buy Canadian oil.

    They did? so i can discard this data then? "In the United States hydraulic fracturing areas at least 36 cases of groundwater contamination due to hydraulic fracturing have been suspected and in several cases EPA has determined that hydraulic fracturing was likely the source of the contamination"

    "36 cases of groundwater contamination due to hydraulic fracturing have been suspected."

    Yeah, not proven. These areas already have a history of previous much shallower drilling, much older wells that predate the EPA. Since the old companies abandoned those wells, there was no one to sue when things went bad.

    Now that new companies are drilling most of these "suspected cases" are being blamed on the fracking, when in fact it`s the old abandoned wells causing the problem.

    Similar things have occurred before. People living in stucco hones, near air bases got cracks in their walls and blamed them on sonic booms from military planes. They sued the government and lost because it was found that their homes exteriors cracked due to ground settlement and shoddy stucco jobs.

    If there is a suspicion which hasn`t been disproven then there is no proven claim of it not being the case either, Logic fellows, try it sometimes.

    @crakrjak you know they put safety guards on lighters to protect kids yeah? becuase gas is evil! that`s just a similar argument.

    MrOrange: I lived near oil refineries most of my life. The understanding I have of the process and cases of contamination is first hand.

    I`ve seen groundwater contamination, people`s houses literally bursting into flames from old abandoned underground pipes leaking. It took a lot, and I mean a hell of a lot of groundwater contamination for that to occur. The companies responsible voluntarily put in decontamination wells and still to this day monitor the area for any leaks.

    Since then, the early 80`s, there have been no more house fires or contaminated water.

    The last thing these companies want is the EPA`s nose up their ass, because in their court you`re considered guilty upfront and your company has to prove it`s innocence.

    This fracking that`s going on now, is 4000+ ft below the surface, in deep shale beds that are under impermeable caprock. Groundwater is usually less than 400 feet from the surface, thousands of feet above any `fracking` zone.

    Despite the movie hysteria, people`s houses and farms aren`t going to burst into flames. This isn`t like Centralia Pa. where they accidentally set the old coal mines on fire and ruined the whole town.

    Fracking is safe and does no damage to the surface.

    It is simply posh to be angry at oil and gas energy.

    Crakrjak Now that`s something i can work with, i only got involved because someone said it was proven safe without anything to back it up. the first hits on google said.. it has a few issue`s (actualy they`re doing it up north in holland as well, and they predict an increase in earthquakes due to the type of soil) But thanks for taking the time to give more information. (not saying i agree with you but that`s just me)

    no you don`t, you started by assuming i was bashing old energy because it`s "PC" were as to me i bash anything that might pose a threat to my wellbieng. Wether that`s smoke from a coal mine, or a nuclear waste dump in my backyard or GM foods, and i wil reserve the right to be skeptical to any information provided by a party that stands to make money out of whatever it may be that might drat up my health. I migth have taken it a bit further with the banjo thing though.. *strum strum*

    Go ahead, please! It gives the US the chance to be virtually self-sufficient in energy in 20 years.
    No more sucking-up to terror-supporting Saudis, no more $80 billion a year to keep a fleet in the Persian Gulf to protect the shipping lanes.
    Already US companies are leaving Europe because of high energy costs and the looming risks of blackouts. We are basically stuck between Big Green and Big Energy: the former pretend that renewables are the only solution, the big energy companies like to agree as they get fat taxpayer subsidies for e.g. on-shore wind, which is use-
    less. The only happy country is France, which produces 75% of its energy from very safe nuclear.

    As far as protest songs are concerned, I always think - as so often - Tom Lehrer nailed it. A song called "The Folk Song Army":
    `Remember the war against Franco,
    That`s the kind where each of us belongs:
    He may have won all the battles
    But we had all the good songs.`

    (Not that I`m comparing Franco to fracking.)

Or is it just a label for people who call out whining with no viable solution? Hollywood ultra libs need to put their money where their mouth is or STFU!
