    @My2Cents:

    Could and would you please explain just what your talking about when you stated that: With oil prices falling like a lead brick, it's doubtful that fracking can complete with the wells and lower prices/barrel of crude. First off you need to frack wells to get the product out of the formation. So with out fracing the wells, please explain just how the oil company's are to get the product out of the ground? And please tell all of us just exactly how much time have you spent in the oil field, and just what jobs did you do/have and what company's? And just exactly what do you truly know first hand what fracking is or does and have you ever been on a real frack job in the field?

    I think the judge acted by the book by not making any decisions on plans that are not even confirmed or being authorized by the BLM, the protestors have jumped the gun by trying to have judge write or disapprove a law that doesn't exist.

    I too am against fracking in all the Western states because it is a toxic process on a low water resources. The states may have to block the fracking if it wants to keep gamblers and people spending money coming to the state. Fracking makes all water too toxic to reuse and every tankerful they dump into the ground is lost forever from the environment. Oil companies wave large volumes of cash in the wind to win over menial jobs in a short term industry.

    With oil prices falling like a lead brick, its doubtful that fracking can compete with the wells and lower prices/barrel of crude.
