I realized that my knowledge of fracking was not very deep and was comfortable in only saying my standard: we probably wouldn't need to frack if we had a coherent energy policy in the US. But, I also used my standard, although often unpopular, statement that at least it is a local source of energy and that we are taking the full environmental and social responsibilities for energy production. It is easy for us to import lots of energy without feeling the impacts of production.
So in the coming months, I will have several posts about fracking facts and figures in order to get me and my readers up to speed on the topic. In the mean time, here's your reading assignment: the EPA website on fracking.
