‘Hope It’s in Your Backyard!’ - Gushing over fracking ignores climate crisis - http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=4568

This is a long-overdue analysis of the American leading media enthusiasm for the current unconventional gas fever.
"We can reach an energy paradise and solve all our problems through fracking" they all seem to say. Yet nobody, especially not the economical pundits. seems to realise that this an old strategy of "more of the same". Fracking simply brings more of the fossil carbon into the atmosphere.

Fifty years from now, are we really going to be wondering if we really screwed up because we went on this big gas boom?” It’s a question that the media should be asking now, not half a century on.

Are the Australian media all that different?
