Fracking: A regulatory success story

The cover story of the most recent National Review is a terrific article by Kevin Williamson that counters the uninformed hysteria about hydraulic fracturing, the technique that has lead to a gas and oil boom in the United States.  That article is not available online without a subscription, but he has a shorter version of it: Facing Frack hysteria: Pa. drilling is cleaner than ever. 

He hits the nail on the head when he discusses the real motivation behind the opposition to fracking.
