Last month on the Late Show with David Letterman, the host stepped outside of his usual comedy routine to get very specific on fracking.
Delivered with a healthy dose of sarcasm in that way that only Letterman can deliver, he railed against the environmentally unsound drilling practice.
They’re poisoning our drinking water and the EPA said, “You know what? You no longer have to comply with EPA standards for stuff you put into the water.” So the greedy oil and gas companies said, “Great, let’s go crazy,” (Paul Shaffer: “Of course!”) and then some states are saying, “No, we have transparency laws, so the oil and gas companies say, “Okay, we’ll tell you everything but 2 percent of what we’re putting into your tap water.”
And that’s supposed to make us feel better.
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re screwed!
