Sen. Hoeven says EPA not looking to halt fracking

With all due respect, the good Senator ought to wake up and smell up EPA is shoveling his way.

The Williston Herald reports,

The Environmental Protection Agency is not planning a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, while a study on the process is conducted.

This was the message from the office of U.S. Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) on Tuesday.

Hoeven released this message Tuesday afternoon to address concerns from North Dakota residents and the oil and gas industry that the EPA may be planning to do so.

Read the Williston Herald report.

There may be no imminent moratorium, but rest assured the Obama EPA is looking to put the fracking genie back in the bottle as the glut of gas is helping to thwart the green war against fossil fuels.

  1. I think that Hoeven is right. The EPA has made so many enemies that they can’t afford any more, and they are a serious liability to Obama’s reelection campaign. After November of next year, should the man be reelected (which seems increasingly likely due to bumbling from all prospective challengers), I will fear them. Until then, politics will hold them in check from anything that outrageous.

  2. They’re beating the bushes for a ‘China Syndrome’ moment to use to shut down entirely. Roll on 2012 – this man MUST be stopped.
