    unfortunately you fail to mention that natural gas produces more methane, which is a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2.
    I'd say that someone who dishonestly tries to portray fracking as the salvation of the poor and middle class is a giant lying whore of the natural gas industry.  
    Oh, and promoting "centrist economics" and Rubin, next you'll be telling us all how you're going to save the middle class by "reforming" social security and medicare.  

    you can shit on my face but that doesn't mean I have to lick my lips

      while I understand and agree with the basic science of your comment, this:

      pushes the emotion close to donut territory.

      More what?  emissions?  Process gas?

      More methane than what?

      Please be specific.

        there are plenty of other links available.

        IMO, it's not anywhere near as important as to what step of the fracking process produces the resulting methane; there should be none.
