Parents frustrated with one-sided anti-fracking performance

The Denver Channel -- EVERGREEN, Colo. - Two young activist brothers from Boulder, sounding off on the dangers of fracking at Evergreen Middle School, have angered some parents because of their one-sided message.

Part of the rap song's lyrics are, "They're fracking and they're cracking the Earth. Is the fracking destruction really worth endangering the future of our awesome planet, with all the children and the animals in it?"

The brothers were invited by an Evergreen Middle School teacher to share their message. However, the Jefferson County School District says the teacher never got permission from the principal, which is against district policy. The district released a statement that said, "We regret that students only heard one side of the fracking story."

Parents frustrated with one-sided anti-fracking performance? Better extraction methods developed to get fossil fuels out of the ground, in higher quantities and not harming the surface and underground waters with fracking operations. When the fracking is over and the company has moved on, the water is contaminated, then what?
We need have to have clean drinkable water and uncontaminated lakes and streams!

Maybe not, for the most part I believe it probably depends on what they heard from their teachers. In many schools, information can be "schewed" .

OLD news. The parents are just upset and blinded by the fact that Bush destroyed their economy and new oil technology moving into their area is their only hope for a renewed lively hood. If the kids' song was more factual based upon recent past findings, the parents would not have a leg to stand on.

If you invite an activist, you should expect to hear a one-side story. For a hot issue like fracking, it may not be reasonable to find an "objective" person to give you a scientific and unbiased account. So just have people from both sides to tell their stories, but don't expect to have one side to give you a two-side story!

Activist teacher promotes message from activist students, supposedly without Administration permission. Would anything have been done if those parents didn't complain?

I doubt it.

Same situation with one-sided presentations of so-called "global climate change".
