Thom: Your latest show purports that these checmicals used in fracing are not public information. If you go to "Frac Focus Chemical Disclosure Registry", you can read about all of the chemicals, such as Hydrochloric Acid (stomach acid) and guar gum (used in icecream). Yes, there are carcinogens in there as there are when other people fuel their cars (you don't presently own one), just as production of organic foods or vegetarian foods still kills millions of life forms such as worms, beetles, snakes, moles etc, including billions of bacteria. True, we must get off of Ancient Sunlight but, it must be done in a responsible way, not flat out prohibition. I would like to see the state of Ohio take a portion of our Utica/Marcellus windfall and apply it to renewable energy production. The wind farm at Vanwert is a good start; now we need to farm Lake Erie winds.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
