Some rear-guard action from frackers on the run.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Paul A. Passavant writes 'A mixture of emotions is running through the Finger Lakes region of New York in the wake of Governor Cuomo's announcement on Wednesday, December 17 to ban hydraulic fracturing ('fracking') in the state. Residents are relieved to be protected from the health risks and environmental damage produced from fracking. Nevertheless, they are continuing their struggle to oppose the Texas-based Crestwood corporation's project to store volatile gases extracted from other states, such as Pennsylvania, in salt caverns along the shores of Seneca Lake, which provides drinking water for approximately 100,000 people.' Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Passavant warns of 'the corruption of the Schuyler County legal system that has cast off impartiality in its determination to defeat the growing uprising against the Texas-based Crestwood corporation'.

Removal of resistance: It seems to me that fracking is a bit like part two of Tony Blair's famous WMD scare. Part three is close on its heels: genetically engineered 'food'. Unification: Think about your kids. Shape the world to be their world, not that of corporate overlords.
