    America will eliminate it's dependence on foreign oil and gas!  Fracking will create jobs and lower natural gas prices!

    Yeah, just kidding.  It was for exports all along where they can command a higher price on the global markets, which will reduce supply here and drive up the prices.

    So it didn't really create jobs, will cost Americans more money for natural gas, and wreck our water supplies and environment.

    A really good deal for us, huh?

    And now we've got a Sec. Energy who loves fracking. Brilliant.  Another win for Big Oil at the expense of the little guy.

    The faster we can convert to wind, solar, tidal the better. If I could convert today I would in a nanosecond.  I hope their oil and gas is worth nothing, ASAP (which of course is why they're rushing to extract every drop of everything they can get their hands on).
