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. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Berea, OH
Yes, but there needs to be verifiable evidence that it does not harm the ground water sources before it can be used. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Denver, CO
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
Yes, but continue to monitor to insure that the practice is safe and the public is not being overtly affected. 6 years ago from a Republican in Tempe, AZ
Allow only with full disclosure and EPA approval of materials and processes employed, away from highly populated areas, and with ample oversight and immediate redress panels. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Denver, CO
Yes, but with unbiased testing, and not in highly populated areas, and with excessive oversight. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Sun City, AZ
No, fracking destroys local environments and the people effected are gagged to prevent speaking about it. There is something wrong with the industry and they know it. 6 years ago from a Green in Wood River, IL
It depends on what liquids are used for the process (e.g., water vs. chemicals). 6 years ago from a Democrat in Long Island City, NY
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. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Branson, MO
Yes, but there should be enforced regulations to prevent environmental damage. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Ingomar, 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. 6 years ago from a Green in Rochester, NY
