The red blue divide

Washington Post:

Maryland still stuck in study mode on whether to allow hydraulic fracturing

The state has not funded the study that is due to produce its results next summer.  Why another study is needed on the subject of fracking is a product of liberal ambivalence and looking for political cover for something that red states quickly embraced with no dire results, but with significant economic benefit.   Meanwhile, they are missing out on the jobs and economic growth that comes with producing energy.

New York has also engaged in paralysis by analysis and still has not surrendered a well permit.  Fear of fracking appears to be the new excuse for failed economies.
