In the short term, but begin to slowly transition to cleaner alternatives.

Yes, as long as it doesn't damage the environment or water supplies

Yes, but with more oversight and rigorous adherences to safety procedures to prevent and manage accidents, since fracking leads to environmental or health issues. There should be more research to measure the long-term effects it has on the environment, and on human health.

Yes, but more oversight and rigorous following of safety procedures is needed to prevent and manage the risk of accidents that could cause harm, since fracking leads to environmental or health issues. There should be more research to measure the effects it has on the environment, and on human health.

Yes, but increase regulations and oversight, and provide more scientific research to measure the effects it has, short and long-term, on us and to the environment. However, if it keeps getting worse, then phase it out and move towards better energy sources, such as nuclear and renewable energy.

Yes, but increase oversight to avoid oil spills, and find a way to continue the process in such a way where it possess no threat to the environment.

@8XWRJ7H from South Carolina answered…1yr

Yes, but regulations and oversight should be put in place to make sure that the environment and wildlife are not harmed.

Yes, but increase oversight and use it only when absolutely necessary, we need to get closer to being 100% green energy.

@6LV5ZML from Washington answered…1yr

Yes, but only in areas where it is deemed low-risk to the population and environment.

@WolferusYT from Michigan answered…1yr

Yes, but we should be working towards cleaner energy resources in order to eventually eliminate the need for it.

@8QYJ7B5 from Illinois answered…1yr

@8TFWF2Z from Michigan answered…2yrs

Yes, but we should pursue more sustainable energy resources with a goal of eventually transitioning away from this practice

@8RBQDDP from Vermont answered…2yrs

Yes, as long as it is done in safe ways that does not harm the environment

@8SMKCCQ from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

It has a place in our world whether we like it or not, it's too big to fail

@8SF6R49 from New York answered…2yrs

I do not think fossil fuels are good, but so many people have jobs in fossil fuels.

@7PTCG38 from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

Yes, but not in heavily populated areas and continue to pursue more sustainable energy resources.

@8RPZ3MP from Maryland answered…2yrs

Yes, but we should invest in more environmentally friendly energy sources such as nuclear energy instead

@8RJFWXB answered…2yrs

No, we should use our resources to research sources of energy such as fusion

@8R8DHKJ from Georgia answered…2yrs

@8QKJ7R9 from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, but apply appropriate oversight, no subsidies, and mandate cost of energy = cost to produce energy + cost to environment/cleanup .

@TogetherinSoli1 from GU answered…2yrs

No, the importance of fossil fuels in today's society should be recognised, but we should move towards more sustainable energy

@86NBM3N from New York answered…2yrs

@8PMF46F from Ohio answered…2yrs

No, we should pursue more sustainable energy resources and conduct research to measure the long-term effects of domestic fracking

@8PK69PX from Washington answered…2yrs

Companies should be able to decide what path is best for them and the government should not be involved at all.

@8PJHVJN from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

@8FG75SF from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, we should pursue more sustainable energy resources instead, but so long as oversight is increased it is a practical way to produce energy.

@8NXSCW2 from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, with the condition that we are actively moving towards renewable energy.

@8KX67Q9 from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but not new permissions on federal land and we should incentivize alternate energy resources.

@8JZHKVX from Mississippi answered…2yrs

While this process currently has a merit to society, I believe we should take measures to distance ourselves from the process at large. An emphasis on renewables and nuclear energy should be society's goal going forward.

Yes, but the industry needs to find safety ways to use this technology.
