Let's Take a Good Long Look...

I read a short article on about exercising caution in the rush to drill for natural gas. The writer points out that natural gas has been there for thousands of years and it's not going anywhere and asks why such a rush to extract it all right now. That's a very good point. All this natural gas is not going to just up and disappear while the issue is being studied. The author also surmises that perhaps the rush is because serious issues will be discovered and companies want to get their profits before all the problems with natural gas extraction come to light. It is an interesting suggestion, and one that is well worth taking into consideration.
