Fracking Gets a 'Thumbs Up' from Fox & Friends

Climate change-denying, media savvy Phelim McAleer got a warm welcome on Fox & Friends this morning where he was the only guest to discuss a New York Department of Health review about fracking that a Fox banner misleadingly trumpeted as concluding, "It's safe." McAleer also just so happens to have a new pro-fracking documentary coming out.

Host Alisyn Camerota cited the New York review and offered up McAleer an immediate opportunity to swipe at environmentalists by posing this “question:” “Will all of that, do you think, quiet the critics?”

A banner on the screen read TRUTH ABOUT FRACKING: NY DEPT OF HEALTH REVIEW CONCLUDES IT'S SAFE.

McAleer took the bait:



The critics are not anti-fracking. They’re anti-fossil fuels, they’re anti-American, they’re anti-modernity, anti-progress… It’s a coalition of all sorts of extreme greens, celebrity, Hollywood celebrities and oddballs.
McAleer went on to say that fracking, which has been conducted for 50 years, "causes no health problems, it’s safe.”

1. Fracking polutes water- stop it

We need to put an end to fracking as it will destroy the underground water and polutes our rivers. It should not be allowed in the USA. Take it to Mexico or China but we don't need to do it in the Upper Midwest. Write your Congressman and Senators and tell them to vote against any bill supporting fracking.
