Fracking turned out to be one of the keys to unlock our nation's natural gas riches. We went from being on the verge of running out of gas, to securing more than a 100-year supply. Companies like Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK), one of the country's top producers of natural gas, have gotten a bad rap for using fracking to access all this gas. While that company's past isn't squeaky clean, it is working hard to clean up fracking by increasing its usage of recycled water while also eliminating 10%-25% of the additives used in hydraulic fracturing fluids to ensure its fracking operations are more environmentally friendly.

The industry is not only cleaning up the fracking process, but it's fueling a revival in America. Companies like Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ: CLNE) are using natural gas as a cleaner, cheaper bridge fuel to a brighter future. Meanwhile, other companies like Cheniere Energy (NYSEMKT: LNG) and Dow Chemical (NYSE: DOW) are using our cheap and abundant natural gas supplies to turn our trade imbalance on its head. The following slide show details all the stunning ways natural gas is having a positive impact on the future of America.

  • akiladeayotunde3 Akilade Ayotunde, Assistant Agricultural EconomistK at Ministry of Food and Agriculture,KUMASI @Matt Power.I have for you and the sector you represent immense respect and appreciation and consider as right the views you have expressed but beg to differ with the origin or first cause of the problem we all everywhere, have on our hands. Environmental Safety Regulators set the bar on emissions and effluents (which every industrial process, even the 'cleanest' emit) and correctly set cause minimal disruption. When the Chinese are ordered to stay indoors because air pollution is above acceptable limits then we have an observable failure in regulatory standards (and instances are recorded all the world over).Displacement Behaviour I'm told by my betters is when a substitute is attacked instead of the primary cause of the problem- we must render onto Caesar the things that are Caesar's....... 2 months ago

  • builder Matt Power, Editor-In-Chief at Green Builder Media, LLC I've always considered the Motley Fools to be an ethically challenged organization, fomenting deeply troubling advice to would-be investors--advice that ignores environmentally disastrous behavior by various industries.

    This presentation is typical of the poison they release into U.S. media universe. Natural gas is not a 'clean' or 'inexpensive' fuel alternative. We are paying the price for accelerated gas extraction from shale (via fracking) by poisoning our nation's deep, precious fresh water resources. Heavily subsidized, marketed as a Godsend that will free us from foreign dependence, natural gas is AT BEST a stopgap fuel that's only 'clean' feature is the way it burns when it's finally delivered to our homes. If fracking were banned tomorrow--as it should be--and we had to pay the real environmental costs of natural gas extraction, the Motley Fools would look like the shills for industry that they are.

  • akiladeayotunde3 Akilade Ayotunde, Assistant Agricultural EconomistK at Ministry of Food and Agriculture,KUMASI @Karen Zastudil. The versatility and utility of petroleum is such that it's a shameful 'waste' to use it as a mere propulsive agent..but...the embryo must use up the contents of the egg to develop, the chrysalis mankind appears destined to use the contents of its womb to launch itself towards the stars...again but.. being sentient beings we must know where to draw the line and conserve resources. 3 months ago

  • kzastud Karen Zastudil I agree with Antonella. I don't believe the average person is dead set on using oil or natural gas as primary fuels. I believe we should follow Denmark's lead and utilize wind energy and other alternative fuel sources. It's corporate greed (and Motley Fool pushing the purchase of the stock) that inhibits growth in developing a more sustainable energy source.

  • antonelladagostino5070 Antonella Dagostino, Intercultural Mediator; Coach; Language Trainer at Global Somehow it doesn't sound realistic. 3d printers, androids able to learn by themselves ... and natural gas? Perhaps we should invest more on discovering how to get energy in a more sustainable way - our planet is at stake. Just to remind you; no planet no money so stop focussing on profit only and put our survival first! I'm sure we can do better than this! Thank you all 3 months ago
