In a safer form, not in its current poisonous form. We shouldn't be leaving buried chemicals in the ground that will eventually seep into water supplies. In fact, why are they using the poisonous chemicals that they use now anyways, when they have... 7 years ago from a Libertarian in Huntsville, TX
I love the job creation and economic growth it's creating, but am very concerned about the long-term effects and lack of disclosure regarding the process. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Berea, OH
Yes, but be smart about it- I.E. Take into consideration where you will be fracking and if it will affect peoples homes, water, health and overall well being and quality of living. 7 years ago from a Republican in North Richland Hills, TX
I support hydraulic fracking in the U.S., ONLY, if it is AMERICAN OWNED interests doing it.
I am against foreign corps. (the Chinese) performing this here. 7 years ago from a Republican in Norwich, NY
Yes, but not in highly populated areas with more vision on what the results to the earth are and if its more harm then good sotta stop. 7 years ago from a Republican in San Jacinto, CA
Yes but it needs to be done responsibly. Also there should be ongoing monitoring of its effects on the earth and environment. Again, oil is a finite commodity so look for alternative sources of energy. 7 years ago from a Green in Kimberly, WI
Some fracking is perfectly harmless, and helpful. It's not a black and white issue, there are degrees of harm done, including none at all. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Wisconsin Dells, WI
Yes, but only for the short term. Research for a more sustainable energy source should be conducted in parallel. 7 years ago from a Republican in Front Royal, VA
Here again, we have already done damage to our water resources. If we are to proceed, we need more stringent controls (i.e. Europe has done somewhat better than us) & greater taxes on the production side. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Pittsburgh, PA
Yes, but continue to monitor to insure that the practice is safe and the public is not being overtly affected. 7 years ago from a Republican in Tempe, AZ
Fracking should be studied more for it's long term effects. The oil industry has not proved it is environmentally sound.
Lighting tap water on fire says something is amiss.
Ground water is more important. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Tallahassee, FL
Yes, but only if the oil and gas remains in the US. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Arvada, CO
I dont know what this means. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Altoona, IA
I'm not informed enough to have an opinion on this topic. 7 years ago from a Libertarian in Apple Valley, CA
Unknown,the jury is still out Need more data on risks to water supply and earthquakes. 7 years ago from a Republican in Universal City, TX
Yes. However, sustainable energy sources need to be researched, so we don't have to drill, which is the real problem. 7 years ago from a Libertarian in Tulsa, OK
Not familiar enough with procedure to make an educated guess. 7 years ago from a Republican in Lansing, IL
It depends on what liquids are used for the process (e.g., water vs. chemicals). 7 years ago from a Democrat in Long Island City, NY
Yes, but depending upon the depth of the drilling. 7 years ago from a Green in Littleton, CO
Yes if detailed research data is collected and analyzed while using this form of oil extraction. This data should be used to refine and evolve the practice of fracking to make it safer and to understand it's long term effects. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Branson, MO
It should be allowed with proper governmental inspections and regulations.
All drilling should be subject to Clean Air and Water Acts. 7 years ago from a Democrat in West Jordan, UT
Yes, but with tighter regulation, including full disclosure of all chemicals used, strong precautions against groundwater contamination, and prohibition where the risk of mini-earthquakes in populated areas is great. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Austin, TX
Yes, but there should be enforced regulations to prevent environmental damage. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Ingomar, PA
In some cases yes, with taxation and regulation. Environmental protection and human safety are key issues here. 7 years ago from a Republican in Temple, PA
Yes, but the chemicals used in the fracking process need to be made public. Owning a proprietary blend of chemicals shouldn't be considered when it is being pumped into public land, and ultimately, water tables. 7 years ago from a Green in Rochester, NY
Yes, but continue research into long term effects and have companies accept responsibility for environmental problems it may create. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Woodbridge, VA
Yes, as long as we use hydraulic fracking in a way that is safe for the environment. 7 years ago from a Democrat in Gloucester City, PA
