Natural Gas Industry Fights Back Against Anti-Fracking Ad Campaign - Topic A: Energy
Roll Call: Latest News on Capitol Hill, Congress, Politics and Elections
February 7, 2016

Natural Gas Industry Fights Back Against Anti-Fracking Ad Campaign reports that “the natural gas industry is striking back at recent TV ads by environmental groups attacking a handful of North Carolina legislators for their support of fracking. The radio spots began airing this week promoting the benefits of hydraulic fracturing and thanking seven lawmakers – six of whom face challengers in the November election.”

“Most of the lawmakers were part of what was dubbed ‘The Fracking Crew’ in ads that accused them of protecting polluters not people. The campaign – which reportedly cost more than $600,000 — was mostly paid for by a national environmental advocacy group with help from several North Carolina groups.”

“In response, the American Petroleum Institute has launched five radio spots touting fracking’s safety record and economic benefits that will help pay for education, public safety and other services. ‘Thousands of new high-paying jobs are on the way,’ the spot says.”

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    What i don’t realize is in truth how you are now not actually a lot more well-appreciated than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly in terms of this topic, made me in my view consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested except it’s one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. Always handle it up!
