  • Yes it is safe.

    There is no evidence of any injury or illness causes by hydraulic tracking. The chemicals used are injected thousands upon thousands of feet below any trace of the water table. Methane in water is not caused by the process, and any earthquake activity has been minuscule and poses no risk to human well-being. In addition, all mining processes can and do affect seismic activity as well.

  • Yes, it should.. In certain areas.

    The dangers to the environment are quite glaring (pollution of the air or ground water, et cetera), however the benefit it equally clear (faster, easier and more efficient extraction process). With this in mind, area surveys should be conducted to measure the rate of impact the process would have and all measures taken to assure it is minimized. At the end of the day, we need those resources..We are going to go in after them. It's just a matter of to best get there.

  • No! The Danger Is Far Too Great.

    How can something that has a bigger carbon footprint than Coal and has been known to cause earthquakes be the answer to our energy needs?
    Fracking has been studied and tested and the final research plan had been announced. The pros and cons have been weighed and it seems that the latter has won. The dangers of fracking far outweigh the benefits. More emissions, earthquakes, undisclosed chemicals, a large loss of water are just the beginning. Drilling into the land has been known to cause earthquakes causing a huge safety concern for anyone living near the drilling sites. The people and the environment will also suffer from the emissions, (which happen to be worse than coal’s), and the undisclosed chemicals that are leaked back into our potential drinking water could harm us and the other animals. The water seems to be the major factor here for even if we do manage to get the water back unpolluted it will still only be about a third of the water that we sent down in the first place.
    This seems to be way too big of a risk to our safety and our resources to move forward with. The dangers far outweigh any potential benefit. To move forward with our cleaner and safer resources like wind, and solar would be our best bet for they seem to be far less dangerous than fracking.

  • it should not be allowed

    Imagine a world where there was clean water, un-polluted air, and only naturally occurring earthquakes. Well, we might be closer to this dream without hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Fracking is a process which uses millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals to extract natural gas from shale, that is located thousands of feet beneath the surface. The water pressure fractures the shale and lets out natural gas. This issue is important, and needs to be addressed, because it is bad for our environment, our population, and our country’s economy. Hydraulic fracturing is harmful and needs to be put to a stop.
    Fracking is ruinous towards our economy. For example, “Road maintenance alone will cost communities up to $375 million, according to a draft report by the state Department of Transportation, since each well generates about 4,000 extra heavy truck trips.” In towns where drilling happens, the value of Real Estate is decreasing. Also, home buyers are not able to protect bank mortgages in regions with drilling.
    Fracking is not only harmful to our economy, but also is dangerous to our population. People who live a half of a mile from the wells can have risk of fatigue, dizziness, eye irritation, difficult breathing, impaired lungs, numbness in the limbs, and even temporary paralysis. “According to a peer-reviewed study in the journal Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, more than 50 Non Methane Hydrocarbons were found near gas wells in rural Colorado, including 35 that affect the brain and nervous system. Some were detected at levels high enough to potentially harm children who are exposed to them before birth.”
    The environment, including the contamination of water, and earthquakes are some of the results of fracking. The contamination of water can cause flammable drinking water, and high amounts of methane in a water source. Ronald Bishop estimates that close to 2% of natural gas wells may result in the contamination of water. He also says that 50% of new natural gas wells in Quebec leaked methane. Bishop stated that “Any suggestion that water from those wells s safe for domestic use would be preliminary or inappropriate.” An approximately, 70 to 140 billion gallons of water are used in hydraulic fracturing for 35,000 wells in the United States annually. This is nearly the water consumption of 40-80 cities containing 50,000 people, each year. All of this water is being wasted from fracking, and we cannot waste anymore.

  • No, it should be outlawed.

    Fracking is an environmental tragedy and also has serious detrimental health effects on people; therefore it should be outlawed. Fracking is just one more instance of a new way for greedy people to become incredibly wealthy at the expense of people who need money and who have no voice in our society.

  • No, fracking should not be allowed in the U.S.

    I know many people think we should be drilling or "fracking" in U.S. To have more of our own oil sources but it is dangerous to our environment. There are many reports of these dangerous effects in the aftermath of fracking which include poisoned drinking water and seriously polluted air. It is not worth the added damage to our already fragile environment.

  • No fracking should not be allowed in the U.S.

    Fracking should be outlawed in the United States since it causes harm to the environment. Too many environmental problems are arising from fracking including earthquakes which are hurting Americans, so therefore I think that it should be illegal. Society needs to find a new way to dig for natural resources, and fracking is not the answer.

  • Fracking accidents happen way to much

    People get hurt and some can die from these man made disasters. Fracking would officially be ok if many accidents didn't happen. There are other ways to get power in your houses that are way safer. So I hope fracking will be banned anytime soon before worse things happen to many things.

  • No, fracking should be prohibited in the United States.

    To start off, I would like to give a clear definition of hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking) to put everybody on the same page. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, boreholes, etc., so as to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. More specifically, shale gas, recently being used by the United States as a source of natural gas, is being extracted during this process. This shale gas is used for a supposedly better energy source, but few people know the detrimental, harmful effects of fracking on the environment. Throughout the process of fracking, many steps are taken that effect our environment negatively. First of all, one well for fracking needs an average of 400 tanker trucks, in total delivering 4-8 million gallons of water for each well. That can supply each person of in the town of Flint, Michigan with 40 to 80 gallons of water, and that’s just for ONE well. If water was not wasted fracking, it could be used to help tens of millions of people around the world who need hydration. Water is a necessity of life, and taking away mass amounts of it from people who really need it is not smart. Furthermore, the water brought in is mixed with sand and chemicals to create fracking fluid, in which approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing. Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as lead, methanol, radium, and other dangerous chemicals that put people near the fracking sites in risk of diseases like leukemia, lead poisoning, etc. During this process, methane gas and toxic chemicals also leach out from the system and contaminate nearby groundwater. Methane concentrations are 17x higher in drinking-water wells near fracturing sites than in normal wells. Contaminated well water is used for drinking water for nearby cities and towns. There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling as well as cases of sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage due to ingested contaminated water. The waste fluid is left in open air pits to evaporate, releasing harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere, creating contaminated air, acid rain, and ground level ozone. This proves that fracking creates a dangerous environment for people living around it, which is not fair, especially to those who chose to establish themselves somewhere before fracking had been brought nearby their residence. Overall, while the gain of natural gases is being obtained, tremendous amounts of water is being lost and toxic chemicals are being released into the environment, whether it is in the water you drink or the air you breathe. In total, with the 500,000 active gas wells, 8 million gallons of water per fracking, and the 18 times that a well can be fracked, 72 trillion gallons of water and 360 billion gallons of chemicals are needed to run our current gas wells.

  • Fracking is horrible

    Fracking is horrible in a lot of ways. 1st there chemicals plunging into the ground. 2nd the pollution from those chemicals goes into our water and our air that may end up in your mouth in your body system that could permanently hurt you. 3rd it causes earthquakes in places like Oklahoma that never have earthquakes and now its basically the #1 spot for them. FRACKING NEEDS TO STOP SOON
