The beginning of fracking in Pennsylvania was tainted by rumors, my trip to Tunkhannock and Towanda quickly squashed all my fears.

I remember when I first heard about natural gas fracking. One of my friends had just signed a gas lease giving a gas company rights to explore for and produce natural gas and other hydrocarbons on their 25-acre land in Equinunk. At the time I really had no idea what they were talking about or hydraulic fracturing would send the United States into the Shale Revolution.

Gas moratoriums are now taking place in both Massachusetts and New York State. Urban residents with their heads buried in the sand act surprised, but…

When things don’t turn out as advocates promise everyone they must and will, the explanation from reporters is, sadly, seldom to question the assumptions behind the bad predictions. Instead, what we too often get is a description of what turned out to be reality as “unexpected.” You can know what I mean; when such as the Cleveland Browns claimed they were destined to make the playoffs at the beginning of the football season but ended up with one of the worst records in the NFL. The answer is always something unexpected but, yet, entirely predictable to all but Browns fans. That’s what we’re seeing with gas moratoriums.
