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. 6 years ago from a Republican in Norwich, NY
Yes although I cannot rely on reports of scientific research concerning results of said fracking so hard to answer definitively. 6 years ago from a Green in Houston, TX
No absolutely not. all current sites should be shut down and completely cleaned up and restore
to its pristine original conditions. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Brisbane, CA
I believe it is important for both our economy and current country affairs to continue to extract resources to fuel production and economy. However, fracking may not be the best choice. If it is the best choice for certain circumstances and it is needed... 6 years ago from a Republican in Arroyo Grande, CA
Yes, until we currently have no evidence that the harm is greater than the benefit. 6 years ago from a Republican in Houston, TX
No more research is needed to measure the long term effects of fracking, and regardless, we should pursue more sustainable energy sources instead. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Draper, UT
More oversight is needed, and improve methods to insure the environment is protected without polluting the water, etc. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Laveen, AZ
Neither support or oppose. Those doing the work should be held liable for damages, if any. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Bethesda, MD
I support requiring disclosure of the chemicals used in fracking fluids and removing the oil and gas industry exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Brookline, MA
Yes but more needs to be done for the people being affected by the process. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Portland, CT
Yes, but we should also pursue more sustainable energy sources and do more research to measure long term effects of fracking and stop if we find it problematic,. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Southampton, PA
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. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Austin, TX
I think it is a viable way to extract energy, but I question the effect it may be having on groundwater, etc. 6 years ago from a Republican in Kennedale, TX
Yes... this is complicated. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Bala Cynwyd, PA
