This is progress folks! Congratulations! Your hard work is paying off. Americans are beginning to know what it means to be fracked.
The survey (pdf) of 1,012 people conducted Nov. 26-28 by Infogroup/Opinion Research Corp. found that among those who are “very aware” or “somewhat aware,” 69 percent are very or somewhat concerned about water quality issues.
The survey found such concern among members of both major political parties — including 57 percent of Republicans, 74 percent of independents and 86 percent of Democrats.
They equate fracking with the whole process of dirty drilling for natural gas. So, it’s not just the fracking, it’s also the drilling that is a concern.
And they want people to come first according to Treehugger.
We should get ready for more “EdUkaShUn” from industry and a major ramp up of the PR machine.
