The renewable energy sector has grown exponentially over the years, and in large part, we have fracking to thank.
There’s no doubt about the fact that fracking has a bad reputation because of all of the environmental issues that it has caused. However, with leak-free frac tanks and waste water treatment, it is much more environmentally friendly than ever before. In addition to the advancements made to protect the environment, fracking has helped us get away from coal, oil and other dirty fossil fuels, and it has allowed us to focus on renewable energy.
Fracking is, and has been, paving the way for renewable energy.
Not long ago, no one wanted to install solar panels onto their homes and many people blamed wind turbines for bird deaths all over the United States, but over the past 15 years, things have been changing. In 2011, the United States tapped into so much natural gas that it has allowed us to drastically reduce our dependence on fossil fuels that burn dirty. Although natural gas is a fossil fuel itself, and therefore is not a sustainable energy source, its abundance has helped to pave the way for renewable energy. Renewable energies are much more affordable and readily available than ever before, and one study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that, by 2050, we will get able to rely on renewable energy for 80 percent of our electricity!
Fracking has a bad reputation, but this reputation is largely unwarranted when you consider how beneficial it has been in the growth of renewable energy in the United States.
