New Zealand is evaluating the use of fracking, and being environmentally conscious, they decided to make sure it was safe before giving the go ahead. So they put together a study, and even headed it by one of the green party leaders.

The conclusion?

  • Fracking is fine, if done right.

The green party response?

  • The report is “half-baked”, and there should be a moratorium on fracking.

In other words, it doesn’t matter what the science says. If the science comes out against the political stance they prefer, they’re against it. Environmentalists are the real anti-science party.

Oh, and a reminder: Rachel Carson was wrong, and Silent Spring is responsible for millions of deaths because it stopped the fight against malaria.
