Fracking, Earthquakes, and Science
Fracking provides a singular current example of trying to reconcile risks and benefits. The Wall Street Journal reports – briefly – on a new paper that not surprisingly finds further evidence that fracking causes small earthquakes. Underneath the article, comments by WSJ readers range from smart and useful to idiotic and reactionary. Others prove failure to read with care.
Science and law intersections continue to grow, but the dialog remains difficult.
