    There is not a "fracking" industry.  

    And union pipefitters don't always get the job, unfortunately and speaking as a Democrat.

    My past work for Democrats who are union members does not have anything at all to do with my statements about the oil and gas industry, with the preparation of these diaries and with my opinions about environmental control in the oil and gas industry.

      Your artistic use of deflection is almost impressive.

      Is your laughable claim that there's no "fracking" industry relevant to the fact that you have clients with a financial interest in fracking? No.

      Is the fact that union pipefitters don't always get the job relevant to your financial relationship with unions that promote fracking? No.

      This comment is the perfect example of how your red herring arguments on technicalities make your diary technically accurate while being essentially misleading.

      I'll restate the question in my other comment that you haven't gotten around to answering yet.

      Have regulatory agencies been given authority to regulate fracking in a way that will adequately protect drinking water supplies? You would be the first environmentalist I've encountered who thinks so.
