A recent Detroit News opinion piece pulled no punches regarding Democratic candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton's position on hydraulic fracturing.
Despite clear and convincing evidence that hydraulic fracturing is a safe way to extract oil and natural gas from previously unreachable deposits, attacks on fracking have grown harsher.
At a recent Democratic debate, Hillary Clinton said that under the restrictions she’d like to impose, “I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place.”
Detroit News columnist Tom Borelli wrote:
Bernie Sanders was more blunt: “No, I do not support fracking.” When the moderator pointed out that even many Democratic governors do, Sanders said they were just wrong.
With their blind opposition, elite Democrats and other radical environmental activists are endangering America’s economy — and ignoring science. Fracking — that is, injecting fluid into shale rock to extract oil and natural gas — is an enormous boon to American workers. And it’s safe.
