John Stossel - Natural Gas Fracking Fears Unfounded?

In my previous post, I asked:

Is methane in drinking water naturally occurring?
Here, we are told the answer is - YES!
(Personally, I thought that was obvious.)

It is also asserted that some methane in drinking water
results from fracking (and, that can be remedied).

I think fracking will reduce naturally occurring methane.
(Just as offshore drilling has reduced natural seepage.)

John Stossel on fracking:

Just remember to balance the risks against the rewards.
In 2009, 33,808 Americans died on our highways.
That does NOT mean we should shut down our highways!
Drill, baby, DRILL!

In Manhattan, thanks to histrionic preservation, we have neighborly fecal matter back flowing making drinking water unpotable unless extensively purified and these idiot hypocrites complain about fracking? They should be made to pay for the ridiculous environmental mandates they impose on others by finally building their own Manhattan water purification system instead of keeping Westchester under environmental occupation so that they and not upstate has the right to police their drinking water. Think of all the green jobs building a New York filter? Why is that bad and all the solar panels good?

Across the board, the so-called "Progressive" mentality is best characterized as a (severe) mental disorder.

The worst part is...
This particular mental disorder is on the brink of destroying all of Western Civilization (and, it will -- it's now just a matter of how much longer before it all falls down).
