With more than one third of the nation’s energy being produced by oil, it would be ridiculous to want to limit or reduce the means by which it is extracted right?

  • Global Climate Change: The Impact Of Fracking

    Once used only rarely to extract from deep, conventional reservoirs of fossil fuels, fracking has evolved to a widely-used intensive process to retrieve natural gas from shallow, unconventional sources, such as shale rock, tight sands, and coal beds where the resource is not easily accessible (Food and Water Watch 2).
