The most important man you've never heard of has died.
George Mitchell did not invent fracking, but he made it work. He persisted when almost everybody told him it could not be done profitably. His efforts turned around the energy crisis & confounded tyrants and would be tyrants in benighted places like Russia, Venezuela and Iran and even managed to chagrin the junior partners in places like Bolivia. Their plans for a gas cartel are now so much flatulence. Peak oil? Maybe someday, but not today and not tomorrow and not soon. What a difference.
George Mitchell is dead. He died at a ripe old age and we should never mourn for the life well led, but we should be grateful.
Fracking will save our economy and bring us back to greatness. It is a true stimulus. There is no doubt that George Mitchell did more to bring the economy back than Barack Obama. Without the great boost we have received from fracking in the last five years, we would be in a real world of hurt. When we recover, fracking will be a big contributor.
Thank you George Mitchell.

I believe the Presidential Medal of Freedom is in order for George Mitchell.
Fracking should be regulated like other extractive industries and it is being regulated. I have written this on many occasions, so we agree in the principle.
What I dislike are distortions of the problem, especially in those ridiculous movies like “Gasland”.
All forms of energy create some problems that need to be addressed. Among the forms of energy we can use, natural gas and fracking are among the safest and more environmentally friendly. I understand the need to regulate and all responsible operators are in favor. I don’t understand the hatred it has engendered among people who should know better, among people who hailed gas as a clean fuel as long as they believed there was not much of it available.
