1. NPS director retracts anti-fracking statement. Link here
Jarvis, in his mid-November letter to Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah), said nobody in management reviewed the staff comments and that their handling was “contrary” to NPS protocol.
The NPS sent the comments in August to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which is drafting rules to govern hydraulic fracturing — or “fracking” — on federal and Indian lands.
The comments enraged the gas industry by citing an op-ed.
2. Fracking could be coming to Spain
When more countries open up to fracking, it becomes more likely that the price of natural gas will stay low.
3. New Yorkers split on fracking
I find this stunning. With all the scare-tactics used and money expended by those who oppose fracking in New York, I am stunned that only half the population opposes it.
