Re "Fracking boom in U.S. at core of energy revolution" (Page A1, Nov. 28): In response to the article by Sean Cockerham, I say this boom in oil production is exactly what the United States needs. An opportunity like this is one of a kind and will most likely bring the United States back to being the top nation again. This fuel revolution also will benefit other nations, our country's unemployed and the United States as a whole. Many may disagree, and there may be many risks involved, but if the United States does not take that chance, there may never be another opportunity for our country to be self-sufficient. The United States was once a self-sufficient nation, and with this boom in oil production, we can be that again.
