    Fracking is just another technology, it has its pros and cons. Proper regulation and the use of this technology it can provide a significant boon to our well-being.

      away from coal, decreased our footprint, and helped keep more dollars in the country. Despite it's catchy name I also am not terribly concerned with the actual drilling and fracking. What does still give me lots of pause is the burning of the natural gas and oil. No matter where it comes from we have to make some pretty big changes in how we get and use energy.

      Right now most seem to look only at our sources and the extraction process. There will always be sources of carbon, enough to cause harm, it's the wholesale moving away from the use of carbon in any form that's the crux.
