Bright Future for Natural Gas

The natural gas revolution in North America is transforming the competitive landscape in numerous industries, but the excess supply is also of global importance. With gasoline demand down in the United States, natural gas looks to be the fast-growing fuel over the next few decades. Even more, with two LNG export facilities recently approved and 20 move applications on file, the United States will play an increasing role on the global scale. 

As natural gas continues to grow as an electric-generating fuel throughout the world, the U.S. is in a nice position to supply this market due to an enormous amount of shale gas resources and a cost-leading technological position. 

There are many different ways to play the energy sector, and The Motley Fool's analysts have uncovered an under-the-radar company that's dominating its industry.

    It takes 8 million gallons of water to frack a shale well. Whatever chemicals they put in the water going in, and we won't knowe because the industry refuses to disclose them, the end result is 8 million gallons of water that is highly toxic, radioactive, completely unredeemable. What do they do with it? Some of it is shot back into the ground and sealed there. In the corrupt state of PA they are spraying it on the roads to keep the dust down and nearby creeks are being rendered lifeless..The industry has admitted that the well casings will eventually leak..There is a reason our buddy #$%$ Cheney arranged to have the oil and gas companies exempted from the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. Short term profits are being held above the interests of the people and the environment. Shale gas and oil may be excellent sources of energy but you don't want to live anywhere near the fracking fields, not if you value your health or that of your family. I live in the Finger Lakes region of NY, a beautiful area with waterfalls, gorges, lakes, dairy farms, orchards and vineyards. According to a comprehensive planning survey conducted by our town board 70% our people are against fracking. We will fight to the last to keep it away from our homes. We don't want the short-term boom/bust jobs that will come at the expense of our tourism and farming economy and will poison our groundwater forever.
