    I’m all for ideals of the government not intervening in economic matters, in the sense of no corporate welfare for export infrastructure or eminent domain. But the massive costs of pumping like there’s no tomorrow are being outsourced to taxpayers and future generations. Set aside a trillion dollars or two for oil spill cleanups, water supply restoration, and the catastrophic consequences of climate change. It’s a simple principle – let anyone do what they like as long as they don’t hurt anyone else.
