Fracking? Yes! But not here!!!
Rex Tillerson is the CEO of ExxonMobil and an advocate of fracking everywhere in the world. His company made enormous profits through fracking and Rex would like to see this practice continued in the future and dismisses any concerns about potential sideeffects on the enviorment.


But.

He lives in a ranch about 50 miles away from Dallas - Texas where big natural gas reserves are believed to be. As the drilling company XTO recently started drilling for resources there, he started voicing concerns over the practice of fracking in the vicinity of his home and protested against fracking near his home. He even visited a city council meeting with various other land owners to voice his concerns.

Ha, typical. There was a similar case in the UK. Andrew Tyrie is a senior Conservative MP who has expressed strong support for fracking but as soon as a company planned to drill in his constituency he was, no surprise, against it.
