Colorado state health officials are putting the kibosh on a study that fractivists are relying upon to push their extreme agenda in Colorado, part of which would include a statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing.  Dr. Larry Wolk, head of the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (CDPHE), told the Grand Junction Sentinel:

“…we disagree with many of the specific associations with the occurrence of birth defects noted within the study. Therefore, a reader of the study could easily be misled to become overly concerned.”

According to Energy in Depth, the CDPHE goes so far as to “specifically disclaims responsibility for any analyses, interpretations, or conclusions.”

While most media outlets are reporting the CDPHE cautions, there is one outlet that swallows whole the messaging from fractivists – Al JazeeraThat’s right, the media outlet that paid about $500 million to Al Gore and his partners for the P.O.S. Current TV.  The same Al Gore who is making millions off of fear-mongering about the environment.  Also, the media outlet with deep roots in the Middle East.  Hmmm, now why would a media outlet linked to the Middle East be interested in spewing propaganda that maligns fracking?  Anyone?  Bueller (Lynn, that’s for you), Bueller?

Ding! Ding! Ding!  That’s right, PeakNation™.  If the United States achieves energy independence, we don’t need (as much) oil from the Middle East anymore, which would decrease demand (and prices, #economics) for the oil that the Middle East produces.  Guess the sheikhs in Qatar will have to tighten their belts.  Just one Ferrari per Prince!  Just think of the global recession on luxury goods….  Gucci could go out of business!

Don’t let the oil sheikhs in the Middle East starve – swallow the unscientific nonsense that the left is spewing hook, line, and sinker.  Do it for Prada!
