The left's opposition to fracking is politically dumb and no consistent with their position on the environment. Use of coal could be greatly reduced, for one. It is less of a pollutant, cleaner and more efficient. We have it in great abundance, it renews itself and reduces our dependence on oil producers in the ME and elsewhere. We can also export it for great profit.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel, though the global warming emissions from its combustion are much lower than those from coal or oil.

Natural gas emits 50 to 60 percent less carbon dioxide (CO2) when combusted in a new, efficient natural gas power plant compared with emissions from a typical new coal plant. Considering only tailpipe emissions, natural gas also emits 15 to 20 percent less heat-trapping gases than gasoline when burned in today’s typical vehicle.
