Well, it's back to reality for RFK, jr.

<Environmental activist Robert Kennedy, Jr., shocked drilling critics at a clean water conference here last week by saying it could be done with proper regulation.

"You need really strong regulations and you need a really tough, vigilant, aggressive, regulatory agency," Kennedy said.

A strong proponent of wind and solar energy, Kennedy acknowledges those sources will not meet America's shorter term energy needs and said natural gas is far cleaner than coal with less than half the carbon and without fly ash, acid mine run-off and mountain top mining.>

He had made some similar comments a year or two ago, but then had gone off the deep end with his environmentalist wacko buddies.

But praise the Lord he has come back to the realization that, as has been posted here, shale NG in the balance actually produces significantly less pollution as an energy source than just about whatever it is going to replace.

I remember posting some similar stuff from the National Sierra Club which brought it in conflict with some of the local activist (and once again wackoo) chapters.

Yes that's right once again NG frac drilling reduces the amount of overall pollution.
