  •  another side (2+ / 0-)

    All these points are excellent.  I don't want to contradict anything here, but for the sake of conversation, I do want to point out that there is another side to the debate.

    There are some environmentalists, such as the Environmental Defense Fund, which see fracking as a net positive for the environment.

    They think the environmental damage can be mitigated by good execution and regulation of the way that the fracking chemicals are managed on the ground.

    They also see the environmental benefit of replacing energy created by coal with energy created by natural gas in terms of reduction of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
