The Illinois politicians and green thugs are very concerned about fracking.
Of course fracking must be stopped, it might actually be beneficial to the moribund economy of Chicago and Illinois.
In fact it is hard for me to understand how they would try to stop fracking when it could give them tax revenues in royalties and production that they could use for what pleases them or buys them votes.
This is a state that is bankrupt.
We need to study this 50-year-old production technique to see if we can find something to be scared of.
