Scientist at Vail Global Energy Forum: Fracking is safe

Randy Wyrick / Vail Daily

— Hydraulic fracturing can be done safely and it’ll have to be, because the world will be doing more of it, said Dr. Mark Zoback,

"We cannot stop thinking toward the future just because we have abundant natural gas. If it’s a bridge, there has to be something on the other side. And what’s on the other side is a carbon free energy future," Zoback said.

Zoback was part of the Vail Global Energy Forum. He was also part of a committee formed to study the safety of hydraulic fracturing, called "fracking," a process that releases natural gas trapped deep underground.

The committee was small and diverse, composed of industry types, academics and environmentalists, Zoback said.

"We determined that there was no question shale gas could be developed safely. But we put forth a number of questions," Zoback said.
