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... 8 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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Berea, OH
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. 8 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. 8 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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Brisbane, 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. 8 years ago from a Green in Kimberly, WI
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... 8 years ago from a Republican in Arroyo Grande, CA
Yes, until we currently have no evidence that the harm is greater than the benefit. 8 years ago from a Republican in Houston, TX
Increase overesight, and scientific monitoring of fracking to determine if the process endangers water supplies, decreases ground stability, or has other harmful environmental effects. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Wilsonville, OR
Yes, but we need greater safeguards, oversight and strict enforcement, with significant penalties, of companies that damage the environment. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Boerne, TX
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
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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Denver, CO
Yes, as long as we continue to search for more sustainable practices with rapidity. 8 years ago from a Green in Glenview Nas, IL
Yes, in the instance you own all the property, not simply rights. 8 years ago from a Libertarian in Grand Rapids, MI
Neither support or oppose. Those doing the work should be held liable for damages, if any. 8 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. 8 years ago from a Democrat in Brookline, MA
Yes but more needs to be done for the people being affected by the process. 8 years ago from a Libertarian in Portland, CT
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
I think it is a viable way to extract energy, but I question the effect it may be having on groundwater, etc. 8 years ago from a Republican in Kennedale, 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
