Fracking too destructive to allow
I thank The Sun for the recent commentary on fracking, which takes a position on the science rather than the economics ("Hydrofracking risks outweigh rewards," Oct. 31). It explains the very real dangers of earthquakes and persistent ecological damage. It ends by stating that fracking companies should be accountable in dollars for these problems, which will exist long after a well is capped. In addition, the author calls on federal and state government to be rigorous in applying regulations.
