The New York Times featured an opinion piece today asserting that China must start fracking to release natural gas reserves rather than rely on increasing their use of coal for energy.
I guess the writer is unaware that fracking is a ponzi scheme. The frackers use the excuse that they are creating jobs to churn private and public monies in a way that if not illegal is certainly immoral.
How do I get away with saying something like this? Please see my December article explaining the political economy of shale gas exploitation, The Shale Recipe: Public Relations at its Best.
