Increased domestic energy production reduces our reliance on foreign oil, making us less vulnerable to the price spikes and shortages.

WHAT LEADERS ARE SAYING

"We have the most intelligent regulation on the drilling of oil in the country."


- Jerry Brown, Governor of California


"Hydraulic fracturing "is being done safely and responsibly [and] can unlock a lot of resources."


- Sally Jewell, Interior Secretary of the United States


"I am not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself has affected water."


- Lisa Jackson, Former Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency


"Today, the number one oil and gas producer in the world is no longer Russia or Saudi Arabia; it's America. We're doing it so fast that two years ago, I set a goal to cut our oil imports in half by 2020--and we will meet that goal this year."


- Barack Obama, President of the United States


"It's been alleged that "fracking causes earthquakes." The reality is quite a bit different."


- Jason Marshall, California Department of Conservation Deputy Director


"Because as long as [California's] cars are moving...[we] are burning up gasoline that is being shipped from Iraq, from Russia, from Venezuela and all sorts of other places...so whatever we don't do from here, we're just going to get from somewhere else."


- Jerry Brown, Governor of California


"The amount of energy released by fracking is "about the same amount of energy as a gallon of milk falling off a kitchen counter."


- Mark Zoback, Stanford University Geophysics Professor and advisor to US Department of Energy


"The Water Boards generally consider hydraulic fracturing a low threat to groundwater."


- Thomas Howard, State Water Resources Control Board Executive Director
