The shift to fracking
When you think about it, it's amazing that a gigantic policy shift to fracking took place without any public discussion at all. So how'd that happen?
There were the technical aspects of drilling horizontally which as I understand it are due to the Department of Energy, but even bigger was legislation at the state level removing home rule over fracking for localities.
Where did it all start? Cheney's (still secret) energy task force? Or what?
