    The scientist who debunks the benefit of natural gas in Gasland 2 is very believable.  Most who want fracking seem to have never seen the movie, believe industry hype and lack common sense especially for CA with our water shortages and fault fractures.  There are better renewables but no fat cats paying to support it because it is not going to make them billions like exporting natural gas to the rest of the world.  Another part of Gasland 2.

      Here is a good exchange illustrating the credibility of your source.

      It left the op revved up and raring to go with little to no reason understanding.

      " There are better renewables but no fat cats paying to support it because it is not going to make them billions like exporting natural gas to the rest of the world. "

      Ps thats just nonsense.

      If somone had a key to cost effective renewables they would be laughing at your joke of billions..

      cost effective renewables would be worth TRILLIONS.

      A failure to recognize that basic fact is proof of a complete failure of your paradigm to grasp the way the energy industry works.

      EPA and Department of Energy have rejected the findings of the Howarth/Ingraffea paper.

      The paper was also torn apart in peer review both before and after it was issued.

      It does not represent any scientific consensus at all about methane emissions from gas well completion because it made erroneous assumptions about gas collection, flaring and emission control typical for industry operations that every other party to this has rejected.

        Howarth/Ingraffea study closely.   But the 2009 Armendariz study of the Barnett shale fracking, at p. 20 accepted the EPA figure of 1.4% lost methane from the entire gas production scheme.
