Yesterday’s oil and gas hearing turned into a session at the shrink as one group testifying spent a considerable amount of time comparing the oil and gas industry to a host of mental illnesses. Just a quick tip for fractivists, looking of psychiatric conditions and creating a power point comparing them to one of Colorado’s largest industries is not clever. It just makes you look like the one with a mental illness.

Hilariously, the speaker, aligned with the same people who blockaded entrances to public land auctions, called the industry “socially deviant”. The only group not acting within social norms here are fractivists, but we know taking a hard look in the mirror can be tough.
