With national politics in gridlock, drilling opposition goes local

The battlefield of the shale drilling debate has moved from the corridors of Congress, past the statehouses, to the country's town halls and city clerks. Tuesday's election results highlighted the shift in the debate over the drilling technique that many call fracking. Nationally, the results provided little clarity on drilling, because Congress is gridlocked and President Obama neutralized the issue by trying to accommodate both drillers and environmentalists. But in Longmont, Colo., environmentalists won and drillers took a drubbing. Nearly 60 percent of the voters in the Denver suburb voted to ban hydraulic fracturing.
