Fracking is necessary to meet gas needs

Success - Article sent! close

A recent writer suggested that fracking is bad. He freely cited the impact of fracking on animals, fish, birds and humans, etc. He left out where he obtained this information and whether it was from a science study or not.

The fact is the country needs fracking to produce natural gas. The country began last winter with 3.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in storage. The severe winter caused a drawdown of 2.7 trillion cubic feet. The country will struggle to build the inventory back to 3.5 TCF by next winter.

A fracking ban would reduce the production of natural gas significantly to a point where there would be a sever shortage. Google "nat gas inventory" for information.

Freely using comments as the writer did, "Thousands may freeze to death if fracking is banned"
