acer-box__California issued a moratorium on hydraulic fracking processes and new fracking leases in the state. Just a temporary halt to these procedures, but it could potentially lead to a permanent ban throughout the state. This move by the state came after activists and researchers put tremendous pressure on lawmakers to finally consider the risks involved, specifically the increased risk of earthquakes associated with fracking. This risk is soDec 15 01:16
acer-box__great that several European countries have already banned fracking all together. You can’t do it, period. Also highlighted were the dangers of chemicals used during the fracking process, including countless carcinogens and toxic heavy metals capable of poisoning drinking waters and entire aquifers. Unfortunately, the public is still in the dark about all the chemicals used thanks to a law that, Dick Cheney helped pass years ago. ThisDec 15 01:16

-TechBytesBot/ | The Influence of Liars and the Failure of Corporate MediaDec 15 01:39
schestowitzThere's little question that politicians—especially those on the federal level— wield vastly more power and control than the average citizen. Moreover, privy to non-public, industry-related knowledge affords them all sorts of opportunities (blatantly unethical but not yet illegal) to substantially augment their income through "insider" trading and investments. For many of them (and here, as elsewhere, I'll resist the temptation to nameDec 15 01:39
schestowitznames) their appetite for material riches can be insatiable. (And here, see my closely related piece "Greed" The Ultimate Addiction". )Dec 15 01:39
schestowitzAnd this boundless appetite helps explain why it's not uncommon for them to leave office with far more wealth than when they entered it. At times the liberty that some of them can't resist taking with the public trust is so flagrant that (moralistically kicking and screaming) they actually end their careers behind bars.Dec 15 01:39
