Concerns are based on sound evidence. Companies need to be controlled in their pursuit of oil at the expense of h2o and peoples health. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Venice, FL
No, we would pursue more sustainable energy sources AND it is destroying our environment. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Salt Lake City, UT

Yes, but increase protection for private property in the vicinity and hold businesses liable for any long-term damage to surrounding properties. 8 years ago from a Libertarian in Lehman, PA
Yes, but continue to monitor to insure that the practice is safe and the public is not being overtly affected. 8 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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Tallahassee, FL

It depends on what liquids are used for the process (e.g., water vs. chemicals). 8 years ago from a Democrat in Long Island City, NY
Yes, but depending upon the depth of the drilling. 8 years ago from a Green in Littleton, CO
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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Austin, TX
Yes, but there should be enforced regulations to prevent environmental damage. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Ingomar, PA
Ok to allow, but continue research on long-term effects. 8 years ago from a Republican in Phoenix, AZ
Yes, as long as we use hydraulic fracking in a way that is safe for the environment. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Gloucester City, PA
