1. Natural gas is the cleanest fuel there is aside from hydrogen, which would be too expensive.
2. Natural gas replaces coal which is the greatest pollution source there is. The USA is the second largest coal burner after China.
3. Fracking is safe and has been going on for decades with no major problems.
4. Wind turbines and solar farms are great for energy, but cannot provide base energy for when the sun is not shining or the wind is not blowing. Natural gas plants can be turned on or off whenever desired.
5. All the world is starting to frack, including China, Russia, Germany, U.K., Poland, Ukraine etc.
6. Fracking can provide poor people all around the world with clean cheap energy so they won’t have to cut down trees and cause desertification. It can also replace cutting down of forests, and replace biofuel farms.
7. We can export all we want, and create hundreds of thousands of free market jobs, because within twenty years the whole world will have cheap natural gas. Nearly every country will be producing, and many new ones will be exporting. This will not be just from fracking, but also from new offshore finds around the world. The USA , Japan, Russia and others are also working on tapping methane hydrates, that have ten times the gas on land.
8. Natural gas is cheap fuel for compact cars, pickup trucks, vans, or 18 wheelers.
