There has been a lot of recent commentary on the hydraulic fracturing rulemaking being conducted by the Bureau of Land Management. From the WSJ, for example: "While the vast majority of shale-gas production takes place on private land, the proposed rules are a hot-button political topic. Antifracking protesters, including some with signs reading 'No fracking way,' greeted Mr. Obama on a visit to Binghamton, N.Y., on Friday. *** Environmental groups worry that poorly regulated fracking could imperil groundwater, increase greenhouse-gas emissions and perpetuate U.S. reliance on fossil fuels. *** Industry groups, while welcoming several revisions to the rules since they were first proposed in 2012, say federal regulation is still unnecessary and costly. They say that there is no evidence of groundwater pollution, and that the rules could damp the drilling boom that has made the U.S. the world’s largest producer of natural gas."
