POINT OF VIEW It’s time to choose: Fracking or safe water?

More than 76 percent of Florida’s electricity is generated using imported fossil fuels. As our reliance on natural gas continues to grow, Florida Power & Light Co. recently signed deals to produce natural gas from fields in Oklahoma. In response, the push to increase natural gas production here in Florida has intensified, which in turn increases the incentive for risky local hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) practices throughout Florida’s spongelike ecosystem.
