I should add, that I always tell people that oil companies are not inherently bad, they are just sort of like opportunistic bacteria. They will produce oil and gas, and keep us supplied. If we let them dump toxic frac fluid all over the place, they will. If we tell them they need to find a cleaner, safer way to conduct opperations, they'll do that. No way do I advocate the "get out of their way and let them get the job done" view. The need a framework in which to conduct their free enterprise, or the results will be ugly.
