    Fracking

    I have been Involved In a campaign to stop Fracking In the Mendip Hills of Somerset, a short drive from my home.
    My Initial concern on hearing the plans was the effect on wildlife but the more I Investigated, the more It horrified me.

    Have any of our US members experienced effects from Fracking and what are your views?

    Fracking is being done all over the US, Oscar.

    It not only has an impact on wildlife but also the environment and human beings.

    A lot of people where fracking is taking place have wells or natural springs that supply their household water. Some have had them contaminated and became sick from using the water.

    These drilling companies remove up to 1 million gallons of water per day, per drilling site, from local streams and rivers to use in their drilling process. That's a lot of water removal, especially when the drought hit this summer. People raised hell about them doing that during our drought and DEP (The Dept. of Environmental Protection) had to
    temporarily ban them from removing anymore water, until the water ban was lifted.

    The idea of fracking made people believe it would generate a good income from signing up to have their land drilled and bring jobs to their areas for local residents. Now, people are having second thoughts because of the contamination and health issues that are arising.

    Personally, I'm against it.

    Few if any, I'd have thought. I did once view an episode but other than the bewildered presence of Lorne Greene the program had little going for it. It contained lots of plastic models, and I'm not referring to the spaceships.

    I have no view on the benefits or otherwise of fracturing underground gas and oil reservoirs in order to extract fuel. I do wince at the word used to describe the technique though. I'd prefer not to see it in future.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
