Summary:

Dozens of scientific reviews have concluded that fracking, when done properly, is safe. Namely, there is little likelihood of groundwater contamination as a result of fracking, the health risks from air quality near fracking sites are very low (for both short and long-term exposure), and the seismic activity attributed to fracking is minimal (mostly low-intensity tremors too small to be felt on the surface).
