What’s it going to take? (warning - I’m about to use stereotypes). It’s going to take some Texas woman’s big hair going up in flames when fire comes out of her faucet.

What is the problem here? More of this, and we can get back to the golden age of US prosperity (i.e., the gilded age).

More like the dark ages after the collapse of civilization. Unchecked climate change means the collapse of our civilization.

Unfortunately I think the President deserves some of the blame here. I’ve heard him speak of our extensive domestic natural gas resources; I’ve never heard him express concern about the environment impact of fracking. From what I’ve read, fracking’s environmental impacts are devastating. I admit I haven’t followed this issue closely, but I have the impression that President Obama has decided he’s in favor of using our natural gas here at home, and isn’t especially concerned with how we do it.

Close, but not close enough - because some have.

No, what it’s going to take is /either/ someone “important” (read wealthy, with wealthy and powerful friends) who gets hurt and decides it’s payback time OR a lot of the rest of us getting hurt. Most likely a bit of both.

So what’s it going to take to fix this, thousands of people being killed Bhopal-style due to fracking-related water contamination?

Probably.

Although considering that thousands of people die from gun use and misuse in the States every year with no change in law or custom, ‘probably’ is the best I can say.
