"Comparing the fracked wells of the 1950s with those of today is like comparing a stick of dynamite, which was first patented in 1867, with a modern bunker-buster bomb. Sure, they are a continuation of sorts, but the differences are more important than the similarities. Things are souped up to a whole new extreme."
