TransportiCA Note: Typically, I do not like to inject my opinion into sourced news. However, the academic in me - and formerly employed by Cal/EPA - calls the finding of the report mentioned below as down right bullshit. Numerous studies from around the world and from other governmental entities have concluded fracking - on-shore and off-shore - to be incredibly dangerous, and a reactionary method of energy sustainability. My assessment is simple: given that President Obama is now in his "legacy" year, and how he wants to be equated with the prolific securing of domestic energy, I cannot help but look at this, and the political actions around the Administration's initial assessments of the Keystone XL pipeline, and conclude this is yet another example of political engineering, and not rigorous scientific analysis.
