With apologies to scharrison, I thought that today would be a good time to make an observation about the horrors of fracking that are so blatantly obvious that they should be evident even to the dimwits in charge of the Jones Street House of Pain.
Arkansas legalized fracking a few years back. After the drilling started, Arkansas experienced hundreds of earthquakes. Even the unfair and unbalanced Faux News admitted that fracking was the likely cause of the earthquakes.
Concerned, Arkansas put in place a moratorium on fracking. The earthquakes virtually stopped.
Then Arkansas decided that it would be a good idea to start fracking again. Unless you're even more dimwitted than the Tillisberger, you know what happened: the earthquakes started up again -- dozens of them.
Scott Ausbrook of the Arkansas Geological Survey, who apparently intends to become a North Carolina legislator, based on his apparent dimwitedness, said, “Are they being triggered or are they natural? That’s something we don’t know.” (yes, he really said this).
Apparently Scott Ausbrook of the Arkansas Geological Survey has never heard of Occam's Razor.
And apparently North Carolina is too dumb even to learn from Arkansas.
And that is truly pathetic.
