This editorial in the Wall Street Journal (p. A14) notes a political development in California, where the environmentalists have been delivered a setback in their attempt to ban fracking. State Democrats are not supporting the ban. This development represents a serious blow to the Sierra Club which believes fracking pollutes groundwater, and causes earthquakes. Politicians in the state are concluding the economic benefits of fracking, which includes hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions in state and local revenue.
