Colorado floods devastate fracking fields

News is slowly leaking out about the many toxic leaks that have been caused by the recent flooding in Colorado.

Ironically, Governor Hickenlooper went on the record just hours before the rains came, pleading yet again the case for rampant, minimally regulated fracking in the state.

How people can even pretend to have debates about injecting poisons under extreme pressure into mother earth is something I simply can't get my head around.

This has always been a no-brainer and a non-starter.

Nevertheless, there seem to be plenty of politicians like Hickenlooper who convince themselves that this is just the strategy that's going to leave a better world for their children and grandchildren.

Let's see if the Flood of 2013 will disabuse them of such nonsense.
