I’m always astounded at where NaturalGasNOW’s readership comes from. Over the last month, for example, we’ve had 1,092 visitors from Canada, 546 from the UK, 246 from Australia and 66 from the United Arab Emirates. We also had 26 from that other place down under – New Zealand – and one of those readers shared with me a shale gas story (well, actually, it’s a fracking story) not unlike our own.
This reader comes from a family of “oilies” and wants to remain anonymous to protect his innocent relatives. He agreed to let me share his story, though, which will ring true for everyone familiar with our US brand of fractivists. New Zealand’s apparently belong to the same shrill attention-seeking minority dedicated to ensuring all human progress is halted.
