What the Frack?? Is that your question? Well it is mine, I have been hearing so much about this whole fracking extravaganza and I have just been confused about what exactly it is. From a little bit of research that I obtained from both democratic and republican websites I’ve figured it out! Fracking is another way that our government can make money! AH HA! Some say fracking is good for the environment because it taps into the natural resources within the earth.
The actual process of fracking: short for hydraulic fracturing) is a drilling technique which involves injecting toxic chemicals, sand, and millions of gallons of water under high pressure directly into the ground to release natural gas in shale deposits. This mixture of toxins and sediment, along with any natural gas released, can leak to the surface and enter rivers and groundwater in the process.
Hmm, interesting so a process where toxins are released into the sediments in rocks that can potentially destroy our water source. Seems like a nice, safe, and harmless thing to do to anyone, if you are a Hitler supporter. Okay why would you actually present a new way to obtain energy, this is good, but to potentially harm people. Come on what are you guys thinking, just dump the poison in the water and get it over with. Frack is whack in my eyes, maybe I’m wrong BUT probably not.
