    The N.C. House should be highly commended for insisting that the legislature retain control over regulations regarding hydraulic fracturing.
    Just take a look at other states that are going
    full bore on this method of extracting natural
    gas from the ground. How safe is their water
    supply? Once the water table is contaminated
    with chemicals used to blast underground to
    access the natural gas, it is gone forever and
    it would take years (not in our lifetime) to get
    it back to a condition that you could drink it.
    The N.C. House is doing its job; money isn’t
    everything in life! Try telling that to greedy
