Julian Castro: Fracking to be phased out in favor of renewables
« on: September 07, 2019, 08:56:14 AM »
Houston Chronicle by  Sergio Chapa Sep. 6, 2019

Presidential candidate and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro said he wants hydraulic fracturing to be phased out as part of climate plan that calls for the United States to get all its power from renewables by 2035.

The Democratic Party presidential hopeful made the remarks during a Thursday evening event hosted by the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists in San Antonio.

Party nomination rivals Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris are calling for a nationwide ban on hydraulic fracturing, an oil & gas industry practice known as "fracking" that when paired with horizontal drilling, uses water, sand and chemicals to fracture shale geological formations.

And he says that without stating any reason for eliminating fracking (not that we can expect any of the Dem candidates to be reasonable about any of their proposals).

Just stop all horizontal drilling and keep the small scale fracing.  I'm ok with that.   :laugh:

That would sure put a kink in my son's employment. He only works on the horizontal portion of drilling a well.

Completely tone deaf as usual.

We're completely energy independent right now and every one of these people want to drag us back to the pre Industrial Age.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Why stop any drilling of any kind?   The only reasons the rats want to stop it is to put America at the back of the bus 'again'.  Not just no to that but HELL NO.

On that crazy CNN show this week they were tripping over each other trying to be the most effective candidate to do just that!

Not to mention it's just another way to control every aspect of our lives.

Well, yeah... but their main goal is to fundamentally transform America from being a world power (which includes being energy independent) to being a 3rd world commie s-hole with them (commie elitists) in totalitarian control over the poverty-stricken peons they will have fundamentally transformed Americans into.

Yup and they want to do that through the Green New (Raw) Deal...Single Payer Healthcare...massive taxation and open borders.

Any one of which (including open borders and more rampant illegal immigration) would bankrupt and collapse the American economy.

Let's not let them.   :patriot:

There's a city somewhere that has tried to go full-green for power ... somebody remind me ... what state is it in and how well has it turned out? wink777
