Fractured Fracking Tails: Self-Destruction of an Industry on the Ropes

Fractured Fracking Tails: Self-Destruction of an Industry on the Ropes | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it
As Denton seeks to become the first city in Texas to ban fracking, the industry is trying to frame the fight in economic terms. But that turns out to be a poor choice.
Garry Rogers's insight:

This story accuses frackers of ignoring environmental responsibilities. It sounds like some of the stories we hear about the coal, oil, and gas sectors of the energy industry--Hey wait, it also sounds like the GMO, pesticide, fertilizer industry, the military arms industry, the transportation industry, the financial industry, the building industry, the logging industry, the grazing industry, the politics industry, . . . .  Too much.  Is human industry inevitably destructive?  Perhaps Jesus and Marx were simply naïve about human nature and in reality inequity and materialism will always rule.  How will nature survive us?
