Reaction to New York state's decision not to decide for six months on whether to allow fracking: Gas industry officials and landowners wanted fracking to get started but are relieved that the state - and not outside experts, as environmental groups had wanted - will assess the effects on public health. But with tumbling natural gas prices, firms aren't likely to drill in NY until prices rebound.

    Profit before anything. That's why we have the most expensive healthcare system in the world. Out of pocket costs can send into bankruptcy middle class families in a heartbeat.

    Maybe you should consider how much water is polluted by problems with the infastructure that does not need to be repaired. How much water is polluted by coal mining?
