Is Fracking Good or Bad?

Light your water on fire from fracking
I’m not an expert, but it seems to me fracking is really a bad thing. At least judging by all the evidence I can find. Both anecdotally and scientifically there are a lot of bad things that seem to happen as a result of fracking.
Bill Nye the science guy on fracking.
As you can see I’m interspersing my paragraphs here with various links to indicate the nature of fracking.
There are of course more than one side to this argument. Otherwise the Republicans and especially Donald wouldn’t be all gung-ho about it. Oh wait, they might be anyway. Another discussion perhaps.
In any case, I think it’s pretty obvious that we’re screwing up the Earth with fracking and we’d better look for other alternatives.
Oh wait, President Trump removed any mention of alternative and clean energy from the White House website. Wonder why?
