Maybe you haven’t noticed, but three of the leading Democratic presidential candidates are vigorously campaigning to straight out ban hydraulic fracturing within the oil and gas industry nationwide if elected in 2020. Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris—Nos. 2, 3 and 5 in the polls, respectively—say they will outright eliminate the technology that has driven America’s oil and gas renaissance.

Six other candidates also would ban “all fracking,” per a Washington Post poll.

What if one of these candidates wins and actually does what they say they will do?
