Fracking editorials

The New York Times and the Gannett newspaper chain weighed in yesterday on fracking and federal oversight. From the NYT editorial:

And from Tom Wilber at Gannett, which also ran a long think piece about fracking:

To sum it up from the New York City perspective: Drilling and drinking water don't mix.
