Question/Comment for The Diane Rehm Show, International News Roundup, July 1, 2011

The French legislature has just last night completed the vote to ban natural gas fracking in France.
Earlier this month, fracking was halted in Blackpool, England after the British Geological Survey confirmed that two earthquakes in the area appear to be related to the hydraulic fracking.
A recent study in Arkansas also links fracking to earthquakes, but the U.S. is slow to respond.
Shouldn't we pay attention to what the international community is learning and doing about this?
