Overpopulatio n is the main problem but no one has spoken up about it because capitalism needs continuous growth and that means continuous growth in population too.

  

Let 's start depopulation with bankers and politicians, and then we'll see.

Thank you Reuter's for spreading the NEWS. We rarely get the human Protest's against fracking. It makes me happy that more of the human population is for Generation Law: Clean Water, Clean Earth, Clean Air and Clean Fire-Energy. The paradym is changing as the bottom lining techniques of these crony capitalistic corporations will no longer be tolerable. Common sense dictates do the right thing for all citizens & the blue dot we live on.

Is Green peace only against Gazprom? This is as bad as drilling in the artic and major spillages in third world regions. Protect the future fresh water supply before we start going to war over it to survive. Peace

If they really cared for the environment they would be lining up to be sterilised. Overpopulation is the main problem but no one has spoken up about it because capitalism needs continuous growth and that means continuous growth in population too.

How Long Has Hydraulic Fracturing Been Used? Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling have turned unproductive shales into the largest natural gas fields in the World.

The first use of hydraulic fracturing to stimulate oil and natural gas wells in the United States was in the 1940s. The method successfully increased well production rates and the practice quickly spread. It is now used throughout the world in thousands of wells every year.

Judging by the amount of protesters outside the Riverstone HQ these protests are globally insignificant.

This is the way to reduce your drinkable water supply. Less than 3% of earth' s water supply is fresh water, suitable for drinking. How much are you willing to give up for oil and gas production, a non-renewable energy supply?
