Fracking:Technology Bringing the Fuel for Tomorrow
From the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow: “Misleading claims about shale gas development serve dogma but not the public interest”
“The Sierra Club and other environmental pressure groups are redoubling their efforts to “stop fracking in its tracks.” No wonder. The technology is an existential threat to fundamental “green” dogmas.
Horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing is a true “game changer.” In less than two years, this proven but still rapidly advancing technology has obliterated longstanding claims that we are running out of petroleum. Instead, the USA now finds itself blessed with centuries of oil and gas. Thankfully, much of it is on state and private lands, which cannot easily be locked up by federal diktat.”
