The Feds are doing all they can to put a stop to hydraulic fracturing on Federal and Indian lands.
We can’t let them take away this country’s golden opportunity for safe natural gas production. Natural gas and oil production opportunities around the country have increased dramatically with the innovation of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. One place that production has been stifled is Federal and Indian lands in the West.
Hydraulic fracturing has been around for more than 60 years and has proven to be a safe and efficient technique for natural gas and oil production. Despite what you hear from the frantic environmentalists and media, there hasn’t been a single case of contaminated water ever connected to hydraulic fracturing. In fact, recent tests from Dimock, Pennsylvania, which were made famous in the environmental propaganda film Gasland, showed that the water is safe to drink and gas production hasn’t harmed the area.
What’s more, safe the bountiful fracturing is leading the economic recovery in one U.S. state. Because of increased state and private production in the Bakken Shale, North Dakota has the lowest unemployment rate and fastest growing economy in the nation. North Dakota is proof that this industry has the potential to provide tens of thousands of out-of-work Americans with access to long term value-creating jobs!
