Think you'll become rich it's time to head north. Chris -- -- pulling through some fantastic tickets from North Texas State tax commission. Although like it discovered that what last year at the number of million man is at least that is reporting some agreements have doubled from the previous year. This -- -- to do without from the full subject you like having fracking. Tussle going on what was -- -- what he's going so well for North Dakota it's what it's fracking to carrying pretty mainstream and around 2006. Oil output have gone up about eight fold in the state and it's creating a massive that generation of extremely means people all I'm not quite shall I managed to -- in north -- What should try to find that the -- plus trucks ever -- and -- of the things maybe gonna come and spend some money needle put spent. So cynical 112100 people now reporting. Incomes of seven at a million normal and it's the sound -- great number of course in North Dakota says it's. It's a big state with not a huge amount that people living with a population of about 700000 they've had a pretty in the context of New York about a bad site says that correct. But you could just -- and yet. And and and I think the number of million -- -- and probably wouldn't translate into massive political support. Fracking which is extremely country and a lot of people in New York I'm very angry about it. But it but in a state like North Dakota but being -- trickling -- -- About a 71%. Increase in the average income in north to -- 2006. And the state says this thing is publicist is to six months prosperous state in the in the unionism is basically. The award from the 38 makes prosperous and fairly new and the ultimate rankings yeah right the way up the top. I think you'll thinking I -- this is the kind of thing that makes it much not a fool. The anti track is to say that we come to schools those exit certain states with the local populace the people fearful all of escalation and especially what depletion and fixing some of the films that come out. The stopped it but you'll -- sign of a way between the prophet and that to see it in you have as a as a regulation on so what he wants also waited. I mean basically America's been extremely cadet at its sharing the wealth from fracking. And I and that's got to -- that -- more employment and everyone's a winner except for maybe if you drink the water something. But yeah a lot of people call it. My suggestion that this community has done an Indian Wells will regulate equipment and -- if fracking is done well. I think many people agree that it pretty ominous if it don't badly can be -- night match. And and the -- we have -- Plant that each state regulates it. And of course it's very much easier to -- -- -- -- capped at the State's politicians or so powerful way to -- only -- if if we were done that it maybe not as a caps and I have a lot more influence. Over a small state like north coast and you would maybe. New York's new study exactly. And it's a lot of that regulation needs to beat them but particularly on the issue of -- thing because that -- these -- committees that -- thing. But doesn't have any impact on the local community -- -- -- to access. But that's actress thanks to a mystery that we've -- more breaking p.'s next week.
