What exactly are you right about Ransom? You have said nothing about the environmental impact of fracking. You've put forth economic arguments. You clearly do not have the slightest comprehension of environmentalism. Read this slowly so that you may understand: You cannot put a price environmental concerns. No amount of money, economic development, or job creation is worth harming/destroying the earth's natural state. I'm not a big anti-fracking guy but there are several environmental concerns I am very serious about - and economics are not part of the equation. If you think you are going to win environmental arguments with economic outcomes, you simply do not understand the concern of environmental activists.
