An online petition drive launched not long ago against the Denver Post. They were upset over an editorial insert that a pro-fracking group ran once Sunday a month this summer. (A very well-done insert I might add). So much for free speech.
But what was interesting to me was when I learned the break-down of the respondents. The VAST majority were not from Denver. In fact, only 0.67-percent were from Colorado! The most….41-percent…were from Europe. Thirty-percent were from California.
This just goes to show you how well-organized these vocal anti-fracking movements are, and most of loudest are in those same two places: the UK and California. Two places whose economies are struggling, and they import most of their energy. Not a position, in either case, that I’d want to be in.
