Environmentalists say that fracking is evil, and at the very least, awful. But the real story on fracking, say scientists, is that the risks are small and the rewards immense. Fracking lowered the price of natural gas so much that Americans heat their homes for less, and manufacturing that once left America has returned. And for those concerned about global warming, writes John Stossel, burning gas instead of oil or coal reduces CO2 emissions.
