In synopsis, consider the extraction of shale oil and gas, widely considered the most crucial aspect of Big Oil’s current push back into the North American market. Shale formations in Canada and the U.S. are believed to house massive quantities of oil and natural gas, and their accelerated extraction is already helping reduce the region’s reliance on imported petroleum.

Both energy sources, however, can only be extracted through a process known as hydraulic fracturing (“hydro-fracking,” or just plain “fracking”) that uses powerful jets of water in massive quantities to shatter underground shale formations, creating fissures through which the hydrocarbons can escape. In addition, to widen these fissures and ease the escape of the oil and gas they hold, the fracking water has to be mixed with a variety of often poisonous solvents and acids. This technique produces massive quantities of toxic wastewater, which can neither be returned to the environment without endangering drinking water supplies nor easily stored and decontaminated.

That was interesting. I didn't know exactly how the fracking process was done.

Now we just need fracking states to stop shipments of natural gas to Vermont. Surely, the wingnuts in Vermont would be supportive. LOL

New York State has had one of the largest protected water supplies in the East for a long time, and the people of NYC benefit from that. To risk that would be foolish.

[-] 2 points by Nevada1 (4669) 2 years ago

Thank you for your post Odin. Clean water is the most valuable resource. Fracking is a crime against all living things.

[-] 2 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

You're welcome. I agree, fracking is a crime. It's a crime what is going on in the oil sands of Alberta too. A lot of people say that NYC pizza is the best because of the water which comes from up-state through a very elaborate, but old system, which is being renewed now.

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

bagels as well!

[-] 2 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

Yes, you're right. The Onion did a hilarious article on all the not so good things that New Yorkers put up with for the sake of bigger, better bagels. It was really funny. The basic rule of thumb is, the further you get from NYC, the worse the bagels, and pizza get. ;-)

That is a great misfortune the rest of planet must contend with. but they have other good things that we would like. So I think it balances out.................NOT! ;)

[-] 2 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

lol Yes i have learned to love NYC, perhaps never more so since meeting and working with so many determined and courageous bright young people in the OWS affinity group Occupy Town Square. I have many personal ties with NY that go back to the early 1800s. It is where my mom met my Swedish born dad, where a top notch surgeon saved one of my my daughter's life, it was my home port in my thirty plus years as a MM, where one of my daughters graduated Fordham, magna cum laude, etc. I love NYC, and if I had the money, I definitely would have a place there.

[-] 3 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

Nyc is grossly overpriced. and that is one of its greatest negatives. It keeps good people out. We do have some good people but as you know there are a great deal of 1%rs here. And yet we vote more progressive. Go figure.

[-] 2 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

Yes, mid-town especially is overpriced. I suspect that is due to the high rents. Once you get away from there, it is not so bad though as far as prices go, especially in the outer boroughs. My mom grew up in Queens, but my favorite borough is Brooklyn. Some of the old-timers there are still pissed that the Dodgers left. :-)

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

I'm brooklyn bred, Born & raised. Family has fled to suburbs but I remain. Stubborn I guess. I prefer Bklyn most, which is where I am. But I'm close to the city, and I'm in it it often. Much of us are still disgusted with Dodger owner, but more recently have transferred that anger to Robert Moses who wouldn't let them have a stadium in bklyn.

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

Didn't Moses collaborate with Mayor Wagner to deny the Dodgers a stadium on the East River, saying that, that parcel of land was too valuable. It layed dormant for decades later, I believe. My favorite area is Green Point/Bedford Ave., although I got to know Bay Ridge quite well. OTS had a picnic meeting in the park that Olmsted designed after Central Park. It is a beautiful park, and big too. I can't remember the name of it, but that is a beautiful park. OTS also had a pop-up event which I missed at Fort Greene. all of my family is out of NYC now too, mostly in LI, and CA. Gotta go now. See ya.

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

It is an amazing phenomenon. a bit disturbing. To each his own. I believe in doing for yourself. It has roots in the subjugation of women but I don't want to be too critical. Good talkin to you.

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

My moms name was Lucy/lucille. We did enjoy the annual Italian Giglio feast in williamsburg (still going on). In NY there used to be a big Scandinavian community in the bay ridge area I believe a queen even visited in the 60's. Not many left. In fact I think the Italians displaced them.

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

Yes, I knew of ths Scandinavian community in Bay Ridge. Like you said, there aren't many left their now. Didn't know about the queen visiting. It think around fifth ave. in the 50s, there is still a pocket of them. Never heard of the Giglio festival...sounds cool tho. I live in a big Italian area at the Shore. Many good Italian friends growing up. Italians are very family orientated which is really neat. Don't agree with Mamiosy (?)boys though, where mom's wait on their sons, who can do no wrong. lol

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

No but as you probably know, lotsa polish in greenpoint (still), Lotsa Jewish in WillyB ( still) Not many irish in either but still some italian in both (used to be lots). And also still lots of Puerto Rican in both. (starting to decrease with hipster (midwest/suburban/euro) influx. I am Italian/PR. Very West Side Story. Lots of family angst and stress back in the 50's when my parents got together.

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

I know those Polish deli's are packed on Saturdays. I expect that is because many of them who moved out come back for those Polish delicacies, while visiting family in GP. The Italians brought Christianity to Scandinavia. It is only recently that we have forgiven you guys. We were having a good time before that. lol There is a really nice holiday which is celebrated mostly in Sweden, and parts of Italy. It is called Santa Lucia Day.

[-] 2 points by VQkag (930) 2 years ago

I believe the location was atlantic ave/flatbush ave, that spot over lirr yards laid vacant for 60 years until we recently built an arena on the spot. We'll see how that goes (opens sept). Greenpoint! my fam fr williamsburg/greenpoint area (pre hipsterisation) Cool. see ya hv a gd day.

the EPA is an overreaching bureaucratic authoritarian department, hard to believe that OWS would support it.

They protect the people from profit driven polluters of our land, air, and water.

everybody wants a clean environment but Cap and trade is rubbish. There is no global warming and carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.

did you mean to say 'isn't a pollutant?' ? you exhale carbon dioxide should i turn your engine off?

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

I worked in the marine petroleum transportation business for over thirty years, and I know the high cost of our reliance on fossil fuels, in terms of the degradation to our planet. We simply must look for alternatives for the sake of our children, and grandchildren. That should not be difficult to understand.

[-] -2 points by chile73 (-88) 2 years ago

the idealistic, naive, idea is easy to understand, the economic and political reality isn't. We don't have a substitute for fossil fuel, now, we just don't. so let's explore and develop our (the U.S.) own fossil fuel resources and work with our allies (like Canada and Mexico) to develop theirs. In parallel we can develop alternatives such as nuclear.

[-] 2 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

The reason that the developement, and implementation of alternative energy has not advanced is because of the corrupt money that comes into politician's campaigns to impede that advancement. All this while other countries in the world are leading the way in alternative energy. In Sweden, you cannot build a new house without a geothermal unit. Even in China with all it's dirty water and air, they are targeting alt. energy, and expect to lead the world in it's developement. To put simply, we are in danger of becoming a third rate country compliments of the polluted money in politics.

We will not become a third rate country if we develop our fossil fuel industry or nuclear industry. there is no magic bullet, we need energy that can be produced at a industrial level and green energy right now cannot provide that.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28393) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

[-] -2 points by chile73 (-88) 2 years ago

any increase in 'green' energy is probably from hydro electric sources. and i don't think you radicals like hydro electric. As far your glut of oil, it has to do with increased drilling, a slow economy, and more fuel efficient internal combustion engines. What green energy have you used today besides using your farts to keep you warm?

[-] 1 points by Odin (583) 2 years ago

Corrupt money from the fossil fuel industry is no excuse, It's fact. By the way have you taken a swim in the Chicago River lately? Don't expect me to defend Obama. You seem to expect quick results, which will not happen. It takes a concerted effort over years to provide the fruits that we will all benefit from. China's vision, and its willingness to follow it is long range. Ours is not. It is kind of like raising kids, as both require persistence to reach a goal. You're a dad like me, right? I urge you to look at the future through their eyes. It is something that I have learned to do.

By the way, why wouldn't you be able to have geo thermal homes in Illinois, if they have them in Sweden? If you are in the 'burbs or country, you would be able to. I do not know how or if that could work in a city though.

[-] -2 points by chile73 (-88) 2 years ago

the Chicago river is cleaner than its ever been, take that however you want to. You want China's vision? a communist authoritarian country's vision?

Don't deride what is not - that is a stupid argument.
