We live in a world where we take countless conveniences for granted.
We heat and cool our homes with the turn of a knob or press of a button. We turn on the lights for as long as we like with the flip of a switch.
What makes all this modern ease possible?
Reliable, affordable energy. And much of that is thanks to hydraulic fracturing, aka “fracking.”
Check out CFACT’s latest “Conservation Nation” video which highlights the importance of fracking in our daily lives.
Of course, not everyone recognizes fracking’s importance. Many on the Left view the affordable energy fracking provides as something to be attacked, not praised.
And attack they have. Fracking has come under criticism from the media, activists, and liberal politicians at all levels.
Can fracking, and the many small family-owned operators within the industry, survive?
That’s what Gabriella Hoffman investigates on the latest episode of CFACT’s Conservation Nation YouTube series. Hoffman gets the perspective straight from the operators and rig workers themselves.
While the first segment explores how fracking works, “Part 2” takes on the purported claims of environmental harm it causes as well as the impact regulatory assaults are having on the industry.
This winter, whenever you shuffle to the thermostat and turn it up a couple degrees, remember to think of the workers who are out in the field harvesting the energy we all take for granted.
They deserve to be thanked and appreciated – not vilified by politicians and the media.
