35. I don't support the practice.

 

But then I also don't support our not requiring higher taxes on fuels overall, or our low standards of efficiency, or our high levels of consumption.

But in context, given what the options are and the utter unlikelihood of making the necessary changes fast enough, his position is a difficult one but not unreasonable.

I hate fracking, but like deep ocean oil extraction, it's the next logical (if unwise) step on the fossil fuel diet/addiction.
