How do you feel about fracking?
After watching the destruction of my childhood home state and learning all I have about High Volume Hydraulic Horizontal fracturing, the risks are too great, the laws too lax and far too many serious issues to even consider allowing this. 1900 round trips of trucks to fracture one well. 3 to 11 million gallons of water per well that is unusable and must be injected thousands of feet below the soil because it is too toxic to return to the ecosystem. Not worth the price of destruction of the air, land, water and our way of life. dead farm animals, sick children and oil shipped out of the country. They say it will bring jobs…not nearly as many as they claim. They bring in outsiders, crime increases, resources from local government strained. No thank you. I’d rather be poor and healthy than rich and dead.
Luckily I live where there is no fracking. But it concerns me enough that when I travel, I will make sure I don’t stay in a hotel in an area where there is fracking going on because I’d be afraid to take a shower, eat at a restaurant or otherwise expose myself to the water.
There are FAR too many mistakes made at the expense of people’s lives and the lives of their animals, and that result in the total loss of value of their property. You have to ask yourself, “Who is benefitting?” Is it worth your health and the quality of your life for a few thousand dollars, that may well be retracted and reduced and lied about? The only real benefactors are the oil and gas executives. The gas they pump out is going to the higgest bidder, probably overseas, where many of the investors in fracking actually live, e.g., China.
Fracking is unsafe, unregulated and unnecessary.
