I've heard about it and I can't believe Congress and the EPA are allowing this to happen! Talk about selling us out! There is nothing good about fracking. They won't tell us what's in the toxic mix they pump into the ground, but it's causing explosions and killing people, depleting clean drinking water and contaminating ground water, initiating earthquakes, and causing low birth weights. All this to force mine a nonrenewable resource we no longer even need. What's the upside? When is our government going to realize that people and the environment are more important that greedy corporate polluters? Probably not until they're no longer to fund their greedy reelection campaigns!

it is causing earthquakes in states that otherwise don't experience earthquakes. It is a poor excuse for finding fuel.

No but judging by others members' comments it must be horrible. Will look it up to have a knowledge of what it is about. Thank you.

How many ways can be conceived to destroy our planet? There seems to be no limit.

Fracking is just a horrible, destructive process!
