fracking is also one of the reasons alot of sinkholes are happening all the natural elements have been replaced with a toxic substance and that's why in mass anyway no fracking allowed. NEW-YORK IS ALL SAND AND CLAM SHELLS PLUS WITH IT BEING SO CLOSE TO WATER THE LAND IS NOT VERY STABLE. AN EARTHQUAKE OF 5 WOULD BE MOST DESTRUCTIVE BECAUSE OF IT LAND MASS. SO PLEASE TWEET, FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, E-MAIL AND SAY NO TO SUICIDE!
In South Africa we are facing the same threat. Treasure Karoo Action Group (TKAG) and many others are fighting hard to stop fracking in our arid, water-thirsty Karoo region. We support Artsits Against Fracking.
I love the hipster movement. My economy an the ability to feed my family and heat my home depends on it. Imagine a world with no hydraulic fracturing of natural gas and oil reserves. Who doesn't like 120 dollar oil and 12-15 dollar natural gas. This guy thinks its a great idea as it keeps me gainfully employed. We have been fracturing up here in Canada now since 1965 with little to no grief. Lets not just ban fracturing in New York lets take it a step further and ban it completely in the...

We have been fracturing up here in Canada now since 1965 with little to no grief. Lets not just ban fracturing in New York lets take it a step further and ban it completely in the lower 48. Drive natural resource prices up to where they should be. Who cares if everyone south of the border goes broke, this is a win win for everyone. Keeps America dependent on Canada and the Middle East for natural resources and once we start sending our resources to places like china and India it's really going to drive prices up. This way we can ensure alberta has free healthcare for generations to come. So do us a favor and ban it completely. Please!!!!
fraccing northern alberta is worlds different than fraccing in a populated area Rocky,
How do you explain the Medicine Hat deal? Been fraccing down there right in town now for about 40 years. Or the big fracs that take place out in Priddis and brag creek? Pretty much right in the city of Calgary. Or out in Enoch on the reserve within Edmonton city limits.... Those are fairy big cities and you don't hear about anything ba happening. Keep in mind as well that gas fraccing in Medicine Hat happens at about 700 vertical meters (2100ft). A lot less separating the water table in southern alberta than in New York, PA and West Virginia.
you understand what it means when i talk about population density right? new york state is nothing like either northern or southern alberta.
I have done hydraulic fracture treatments at as little as 400m. There have been 3 proven cases in alberta that CBM fracturing has contaminated ground water. But your essentially forcing a gas into the ground at high rates and pressure. One of those was linked to bad cement, and 2 if those were because of fracture operations at 100m below surface. 300 feet. Botom of the water table was at 65m. Surface casing was set at around 82m. That's cuttin it to close for comfort.
I know exactly what you mean when you say population density, it is crazy out there. However if fracturing is in fact causing groundwater contamination then they need to look at regulations, not bans. Regulate the industry like Canada. I know it's hard for a lot of Americans to grasp that the Canadian oilpatch is light years ahead of the US they should be in fact taking notes and learning.
Hey, we need that water to drink, eh?
Don't piss off the Hulk!
Shaking a jug of dangerous chemicals around in a crowd. Isn't that how he turned green the first time?
I somehow can tolerate Ruffalo nonetheless.
Please people, keep the fight going. Let "all voices" be heard that those companies, which are all about "greed" Do not let them drill anymore.
The Bush administration let these companies do whatever they wanted to do, with out any "safety " rules and cannot be touched, so far, fight back! Water to sustain life, not for "profit" for the Greedy.
Ignorance Iis bliss! Learn more about what you are fighting about!
I am simply grateful for anyones involvement with this issue...this is the subject that must stay front and center in environmental stewardship It is the only Obama platform I vehementally disagree with. Thank you to all of you for caring. Tell everyone you know to watch "Gasland" numerous times.
Thank God Hollywood released that new movie with Matt Damon...Everybody just keep up the conversation and pressure on elected reps etc
why can't people who do fracking, strip mining and other dubious ways of providing energy, just get with the program and use their brains to harness the one universal and clean energy source... solar power.
It's being worked on but currently is too expensive and impractical for everyday use.
Do you want the most beautiful city on the earth vanish by sinking underground because of fracking?
There's no fracking in Phoenix right now.
End fracking now. No fracking in my home state, New York. Keep our drinking water sale. Good work nature advocates.
No fracking in Wisconsin.
They are planning to do this in Ireland also..Over my dead body! Fracking is highly dangerous!
They what to do it up here. Ditto !
