If Gordon Klingenschmitt is elected to the Colorado state legislature, it seems he may actually not be the dumbest man in that body. His interview with Sen. Randy Baumgardner supports that contention, as Baumgardner claims that fracking is fine because it’s normal for water to burn. In fact, the Native Americans used to burn water for heat. No, I’m actually not making that up.
“I’ve been doing a lot of the fracking seminars,” said Baumgardner, “and if people haven’t been, then they really don’t understand it.”“They talk about methane in the water and this, that, and the other,” Baumgardner went on, “but if you go back in history and look at how the Indians traveled, they traveled to the ‘burning waters.’ And that was methane in the waters and that was for warmth in the wintertime.”
“So a lot of people,” he said, “if they just trace back the history, they’ll know how a lot of this is propaganda.”
