Hydraulic Fracking Gone Wrong (Video)

Hydraulic Fracking Gone Wrong (Video)

Fracking (aka, hydraulic fracturing or industrial gas drilling) is a dangerous way of getting oil and natural gas and a shortsighted energy strategy. It’s poisoning our air and water and on its way to jeopardizing the health of millions more Americans.

We can find a better way—one that protects our health and gives us clean, safe energy sources that never run out.

The world's most vital treasure...Fresh Water! Without it we cannot exist.
There has not been enough scientic testing of fracking...and if results were not good...would we the people be told?

The Republicans defend the oil, gas, coal and chemicals and let them do anything they want in return for their generous donations.They care not for the permanent damage these companies do to the land, air, water and to our health.

Check out http://www.roperld.com/science/minerals/ShaleGas.htm . It shows that shale-gas extraction is happening so fast that it will peak 2015-2020 and then will fall off very fast. If the extractors do not have to pay for the environmental damage being done, gas prices will go down for the next decade that then rise very rapidly. If we are going to continue extracting natural gas so fast, it should all be used to create infrastructure of renewable energy (nuclear is not renewable).

Unless we make them stop this stuff it will devastate a big part of this country. No water - no people. That's hundreds of square miles of uninhabitable land.
