Energy Projects Will Lift Our Economy & Our Community

PRESS RELEASE by John Harmon

We all care about clean water and a safe environment for our children yet this concern does not have to stand in the way of a healthy economy. When it comes to energy production, all too often the media and the public make snap judgments on environmental issues, letting a lack of information lead to the vilification of perfectly safe practices that are supporting economic growth. A good case in point is the current debate over hydraulic fracturing.

Hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as "fracking" in the industry, is a technique that uses water pressure to extract oil and natural gas from rock formations that are impervious to conventional drilling methods. Fracking has a long track record of success and has proven itself to be a safe, effective way to utilize domestic energy reserves that would otherwise go untapped.Hydro-fracturing

Fracking is important because meeting the energy demands of businesses and consumers with clean burning fuels such as natural gas is incredibly valuable to our economy. Best of all we produce it right here at home. Not only does it stabilize prices and make us less dependent on unreliable foreign oil-states and it directly supports millions of jobs. Economists estimate that U.S. oil and natural gas production provides employment opportunities for nine million Americans.
