Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, said Friday she would immediately ban fracking if elected president, drawing pushback from critics who said the move would cripple the U.S. oil-and-gas industry and force the nation to import fossil fuels.
Pandering to your ultra-liberal base is a non-starter. Does she forget we have hard-working blue-collar folks in the oil industry?
Also very important is the need to understand “American oil independence” is not a slogan but a necessity, It is vital for America, as it frees America from the dependance on Anti American Oil producers. And it helps us from getting involved in foreign entanglements. Something that most Liberals and Conservatives would agree with. yet Sen. Elizabeth Warren is counting on the fact that America has a short attention span in regards to foreign policy.
Fracking ban talk will hurt Democrats in 2020
Adams County calls for 1,000-foot buffer between wells and homes
Colorado Adams County officials are going after the fracking industry, Even after the State Voted against any job-killing legislation. The will of the People is again being trampled on by the Democratic establishment in the state of Colorado.
Adams County will request a 1,000-foot buffer between wells and homes, schools and daycare centers — doubling the distance the state presently requires.
The issue of anti-fracking “well setbacks” became the topic during the 2018 election, when voters were some asked to increase the distance between new wells and homes and schools to 2,500 feet statewide. The ballot issue, Proposition 112, was defeated by a large percentage.
In March Adams County put a six-month moratorium on any new drilling so that it could rewrite its rules for the industry. There are hundreds of pending permits for wells in the county.
