Poll: More Americans Support Fracking Than Reject It | The Daily Caller
Coralville Responds to Emerald Ash Borer

No reason to ban fracking in Florida

Despite what its critics claim, fracking is safe. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s five-year study of oil and gas production is crucial to the debate over fracking.  Based on data from more than 600 sources, EPA found no evidence of significant groundwater contamination related to fracking.

In addition, some of fracking’s strongest advocates came from the Obama administration.  Former Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who has personally dealt with fracking wells, has openly criticized local and state fracking bans.  Former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz has praised fracking as an environmental positive.

And a study published by the National Academy of Sciences has also confirmed that fracking is safe.  A team of scientists found that no groundwater or aquifer pollution resulted from fracking.
