Swipe Right: Seeking Fracturing Policy Alternatives

by Terry Anderson, Carson Brunovia PolicyEd.org
Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Requiring hydraulic fracturing operators to tag their fracturing fluids with tracers helps enforce the property rights of others who may be harmed. This, in turn, enables more use of insurance, surety bonding, self-regulation, and third-party verification/certification to reduce and protect against the real but rare risks of fracturing. Property rights hold producers accountable and take advantage of fracturing benefits.

Getting The Fracts Straight

by Terry Anderson, Carson Brunovia PolicyEd.org

All forms of energy production have their risks, but scientific research suggests that hydraulic fracturing’s risks of water use, water contamination, or induced seismic activity from improper fluid disposal are rare, overblown, or easily mitigated. Like other energy productions, we have to weigh the risks and rewards. Estimates suggest fracturing will create almost 4 million jobs and pump almost $500 billion in the U.S.’s economy by 2035.

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

The true-believers in organic agriculture, such as the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM—Organics International), are as deluded as those who deny the value of vaccines and, like them, have the potential to inflict tremendous harm.

Earth Day Has Embraced Hysteria And Abandoned Science

by Henry I. Miller, Jeff Stiervia Fox News
Friday, April 20, 2018

Sunday is Earth Day, a celebration conceived by then-U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson and first held in 1970 as a “symbol of environmental responsibility and stewardship.” In the spirit of the time, it was a touchy-feely, consciousness-raising, New Age experience. Most activities were organized at the grassroots level.
