... For every gallon of water used by fracking, Texas saved 33 gallons by using that water to produce electricity from natural gas instead of coal. ...But, but, but, say the liberal whackos... I read not to long ago that there are something like 32,000 fracking wells in the US. You don't read much if anything about them causing any problems. That doesn't stop the ignorant nut jobs who irrationally fear that it -might- hurt the water supply. Just about anything -might- hurt the water supply. The upside of fracking is less use of coal, less pollution, and lower cost. Those facts won't stop the, 'fear of progress' left wing liberal nuts from being against it.
