the_Lizard 2 years, 7 months ago on Oil and gas symposium set for Hayden

Well it seems even though it's not Tuesday, the anonymous among us are now barred, banned and killed off. I'm gonna miss some of you guys, sledneck, sedgemo, spidermite, and others. I really really enjoyed debating you lewi, but now you and sun can opine as often as you wish about the evils of energy and no one will question you. Otherwise I'm sure there will be fascinating posts about the weather.

Thank you for the link, Mr Cantafino. The article was enlightening, but your conclusion of risk management was especially well said..

It's a personal tragedy cheesehead, but because of her opinion on mmj she's being discussed and vilified more so, than if she were just an average dui. (again she may have been anti-mmj outside of the comment section, I'm sorry I don't know for sure, wasn't something I was interested in) My main point is I wouldn't want the repurcussions that could come from lack of anonymity in the comment section.

Actually, I'm not well enough informed about Dr. Victory or the bad feelings she generates to carry on a good argument other than the need for anonymity in the comment section....

Sedgmo, Cantafio is the attorney I was talking about. This should be a very interesting symposium. I hope I can go.

I understand that thalgard, but IMO that's a different subject than the fact that she was against mmj. Since she was an unpopular voice for that side her every move can now be scrutinized, because she chose to use her real name in the comment section.. (she may have written letters to the editor too, I never followed the mmj thing that closely) Anyway, I'm not defending her actions, I'm just saying I woudn't comment here without the cover of anonymity. Hebo..., I'm not so sure that closing off certain stories from commentors is such a bad idea. Scott Wedell mentioned, and I agree, it should be closed on stores of personal tragedy, of which, I think this is. Very sad really.

This is why there must be the ability to post anonymously. Dr. Victory didn't, expressed very unpopular opinions, and now is subjected to a hatefest because of her her very stupid actions. I would not ever post here without the ability to remain anonymous. Never! I much prefer the potato story, thx for the smiles highway, sun, phoebe, RWD etc. ;-)

the_Lizard 2 years, 7 months ago on Steve Lewis: Is fracking safe?

See lewi, all the anti-energy people have to do is go to one of the numerous websites dedicated to abolishing energy production and usage, then cut and paste. The information has already been read deciphered and an opinion wiritten about it all easy to digest and ready to spread around as truth. Did you read the study (me neither I just read the stuff that was written in English like the intro.) or just the analysis by propublica? In the studies introduction it has this diclaimer; " We found no evidence for contamination of drinking-water samples with deep saline brines or fracturing fluids." Despite this propublica titles it's piece, "Scientific Study Links Flammable Drinking Water to Fracking" Wow!

Then on another comment section you name this "study" IMPACTS OF GAS DRILLING ON HUMAN AND ANIMAL HEALTH, that routtcountyfrack has conveniently compiled for you. The first quote comes from Sandra Steingraber, who obviously has an agenda, " "Steingraber urged for the rapid phase-out of all fossil fuels “to avoid human calamity” http://www.vindy.com/news/2012/jan/10/by-karl-henkel/ That lends credibilty to a scientific study. ha Oh wait this really wasn't a "scientific study and the authors admit it, too bad routtcountfrack didn't mention this,. "By the standards of a controlled experiment, this is an imperfect study, as one variable could not be changed while holding all others constant. It also is not a systematic study that will provide the percentage of farms with problems associated with gas drilling" or this “This study is not an epidemiologic analysis" or this, "not a study of the health impacts of specific chemical exposures"

One of your links did lead to this great youtube video though, all natural.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&amp...

the_Lizard 2 years, 7 months ago on David Moss: Birth control 'dust-up'

RWD said "All evidence indicates that access to birth control is one of the surest ways to assist single women and working-poor families out of poverty." We aren't talking about access. 99% of women 15 44 years old have used bc, they have access. This is about me paying for it, I'm sorry, I pay enough as it is, do you mind if I opt out and send them to PP for free bc. (heck I pay for that too)

the_Lizard 2 years, 7 months ago on Steve Lewis: Is fracking safe?

The original bill said "including preserving the right of local governments to ban oil and gas activities deemed harmful to their communities." They took that out, wonder why? Too extreme??? Imagine, under the guise of protecting private property rights and local control, this bill originally would have given county commissioners the right to overturn prior contracts between mineral rights owners and lessees. You people are okay with that kind of control, applaud it in fact? (can they even do that?) The commissioners have said they don't have the money to hire professional consultants, so what will they base their decisions on....feelings, the "expertise" of locals that have no time for facts? Latest study: http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2012/02/17/ut-austin-study-says-fracking-hasnt.html "....local management of oil and gas development that will affect the health, welfare and quality of their lives...." Subjective claptrap, I would be surprised if this bill makes it very far. Certainly Hickenlooper won't sign it.

There is sufficient local control...ie moratorium on Camilletti well, but guess we will find out more on the 21st. Fred, I wonder if a pro-energy petition would be accepted on change.org. ha
