Who's Next to Be Bought?
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer responded to recent reports the hydraulic fracturing technology used to produce natural gas is causing earthquakes and tremors in our oil shale regions. Cramer said these reports need to be monitored and studied closely, but the fact of the matter is all energy sources have side effects. You simply cannot get energy without damage being caused somewhere. Tremors may not be a huge win, he said, but it's certainly less of a loss than importing oil from abroad. Cramer once again called energy independence a national imperative, one that creates jobs and, in the case of natural gas, is far cleaner than using oil and coal alternatives or driving up food prices with ethanol. So while natural gas may not be perfect, it's certainly the best alternative we have at the moment until renewable fuels become more practical.
