Natural Gas

Today, because of technological advancements including the combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, America has access to previously unreachable stores of natural gas.

The result? The United States has become the world’s leader in natural gas production with a 100-yr supply of safe, clean-burning natural gas.  In fact, there is such an abundance that within the next 10 years, we are expected to become a net exporter of natural gas, which will not only will help the U.S. economy, but also our allies who want secure, reliable sources of energy.

15 years ago, natural gas was supposed to be a clean, but un-acheivable source of energy. "Only if we could use clan burning gas." Now we can, and people are complaining about it. You'd think us a pile of spoiled rich kids who don;t know how to celebrate positive progress. Just complaining about how it could be better. Congrats to fracking for giving America control over it's energy decisions!
