From the article:
"Jackson went on to laud fracking, saying, "Natural gas is and will be a central issue for our State and our counties for decades" and that "we can expect the gas industry to be around for a long time."
Tough to say if the above quote is more suggestive of hubris or a total ecological disconnect. As if there ARE many decades left for human survival (that is, above ground and not in some high-tech underground bunker) if the Frackers and other fossil fuel energy behemoths have their way.
Oh, and aiming at the kids suggests an interesting PR fantasy since by the time they come of age, the already escalated Earth Changes will make far more lands prey to volcanoes, earthquakes, fires, droughts, and mega-storms... but all the Frackers can see is the paper money generated from this particular way of raping the Great Earth Mother.
