A Fracking Primer
Odds are most people don't know why fracking HAS to be used in the US
so much - there is simply no other way to supply Ngas at rate of the
25 trillion cubic feet per year (tcfy) at any price (imports and
"conventional" supply only 17.6 tcfy these days). So if we wish to
avoid fracking sourced Ngas, we need to use less Ngas. And that
includes Ngas used to make electricity, and which is where wind
turbines could come in really handy. Odds are, that (do less fracking)
will not be an unpopular message, regardless of "why".
So, here is the Powerpoint type explantation (in other words, a really quick read). Any questions?
