It’s that nice of Obama?! Remember, don’t set the water coming out of your kitchen faucet on fire! And by all means do let the frackers take as much fresh water as they need! (we’ll just have to pay a higher price for water here in the States to facilitate their fracking profits!). Earthquake anyone?!
