Biggest Story Of The Year For Fracking? -- September 16, 2014; Holding A Conference And "No One" Attends -- Do You Still Take Selfies?

The AP is reporting:
The final report from a landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, found no evidence that chemicals or brine water from the gas drilling process moved upward to contaminate drinking water at a site in western Pennsylvania.
The Department of Energy report, released Monday, was the first time an energy company allowed independent monitoring of a drilling site during the fracking process and for 18 months afterward. After those months of monitoring, researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas stayed about 5,000 feet below drinking water supplies.
Scientists used tracer fluids, seismic monitoring, and other tests to look for problems, and created the most detailed public report to date about how fracking affects adjacent rock structures.
The fracking process uses millions of gallons of high-pressure water mixed with sand and chemicals to break apart rocks rich in oil and gas. That has led to a national boom in production, but also concerns about possible groundwater contamination.
Flat Earthers Are Staying Home
(Their Phrase, Not Mine)

It's one thing when "no one" shows up, but it speaks volumes when neither the prime minister of the Australia nor the prime minister of Canada NOR the president of ever-green Germany is attending the green energy / climate change conference in NYC. The link does not say whether the prime minister of the UK is attending. However, this source says he is attending but the EU prime minister will not be attending. The fact that neither Germany nor the EU will be sending their leaders -- just coincidental? The EU prime minister will be in NYC at the UN the following day, so it is a thought-out decision for him not to attend the Climate Change Conference. One must remember that much of the EU is heading into another recession (or never recovered from the last recession), much of it due to emphasis on global warming. The French premier plans to attend. It appears the farther one leans to the socialist agenda, the more likely one is to attend. This serves to point out, more than anything else, the "green movement" is simply an anti-capitalist / anti-free-market movement.
