Fracking is Absurd

Roan Plateau Fracking

Fracking is a process that often has the unintended consequence of leaking ‘proprietary chemicals’ and natural gas into streams, rivers and the ground water table.

Fracking, the process of extracting natural gas by injecting highly pressurized chemical, sand/water sludge into the ground, is a highly controversial method of extraction that adversely affects living beings.

Instead of fracking, use the sun’s predictable movements to heat and cool your home.
