I use very little natural gas in my home, but I do use it. As much as we need to change our habits and our consumption of burned fuels (coal, oil, gasoline, natural gas, etc) we are still tied to them... for the very short term. It's not out of our power to make these changes.
As far as fracking goes: until they can retrieve natural gas and oil (yes, oil) from the ground without polluting it AND the air, it should be banned as a practice in the world.
I received a copy of "The Flowback" from a friend long ago, and I commonly refer to the paragraph written at the bottom of the front page:
"THREE KINDS OF PEOPLE FAVOR HYDROFRACKING:
Those whose greed blinds them; those who have swallowed the Kool-Aid and believe the industry's lies; and those who are not as yet informed. At the moment, most belong in the third category. But We The People, are waking up. Look around and see what we are accomplishing in this world. Critical mass will soon be reached. There is not enough wealth in the whole universe to withstand critical mass and truth, an idea whose time has come.
In the case of hydrofracking, truer words have never been spoken."
