Der Spiegel discovers fracking can change the world

Der Spiegel has discovered that fracking can change the world.

Strike that sentence.

Der Spiegel has discovered that fracking can improve the world.

How so? By helping the world become far less dependent on the oil and natural gas provided by totalitarian (or at minimum, repressed) nations like Russia, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, et al..

When the West can have it’s fuel needs met cheaper, better, and faster (by the West itself), foreign policy can move itself away from the conundrum often called blood for oil. Oh, and there’s the fact that natural gas is a far cleaner fuel than, for example, coal. “Manmade global warming” and all that.

Will Western liberals see the light? (Answer: consider the Luddites.)

In other words, don’t hold your breathalyzer.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
