Natural Gas Industry Fights Back Against Anti-Fracking Ad Campaign

NewsObserver.com 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.”

    There are definitely a number of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to convey up. I offer the thoughts above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you bring up the place an important thing might be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Each girls and boys feel the affect of just a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.
